Keeping our kids active brings about several health benefits that cannot be taught indoors. This is from fostering some self-confidence in your child, the much needed social skills, triggering their creative mind, and so much more. Not forgetting offering your child better sleep, after a long day outside clearing their mind with nature, running around and climbing the assortment of play equipment they have your child will definitely have a better sleep at night. And when the mind is resting, this is when your child grows into a healthy, strong individual.
I think we have convinced you of the benefits outdoor play will offer your child so why not jump into the equipment you could get for them. We want them to explore and develop that curious mind that helps in brain development.
Some Outdoor Play Equipment’s to Consider
There are several outdoor types of equipment available for your children, but when we are searching for the best, we consider safety and one that will genuinely stimulate our children’s minds. We have just made the search a little easier for you by having a list of different play equipment you can consider.
- Getting them a fort
If you are looking for the ideal play centre, then ‘The fort’ is a fantastic idea. It is an excellent place for the whole family to enjoy. You have the option of installing it directly on the ground or have a small elevation and incorporate other activities below the deck, this way you open up and an endless list of adventure activities your child can explore. If you go the elevation route you have so much to explore to keep your child entertained; you could add a sandpit a few toys they can play with, attach a slide to get them moving, have a rock wall. The list is long on ways to keep your child entertained.
- How about a castle for your little princess or prince?
The castle will offer your daughter or son an endless list of activities to get into; it comes in an open design just to ensure mummy or daddy can keep an eye easily as they go on with their chores. It has a tower giving you the freedom to add the accessories you would want your child to explore safely; you can have a fireman’s post for your prince to get up and down, a slide to help your princess down, swing sets to explore as they are taking in the fresh air. The design does not limit you to what you can offer your child when it comes to exploring. It could be a family cubby house when you all want to play and have an extra bonding session.
The design of the castle can withstand all weather conditions and has been made available in three different sizes, just to ensure it fits comfortably in any backyard size.
- An option of having a café in your backyard
For all the bakers, baristas and shop keepers out there, let us gather here for just one minute. The café has been designed with long servery windows, a cubby house that can easily be transformed into a café, a market stall or a simple shop. If you are trying to teach your child some entrepreneurial skills you have gathered along the way, then this is something you can both explore. It has a door at the front and a window at the side to help your child call out and attend to all the customers interested with his products. Maybe you could start with selling some lemonade, to get his entrepreneurial skills going.
