In today’s fast-paced, technology-soaked world, it’s quite easy to get caught up in the world of electronics and screens. Simple joys such as face-to-face connection, spontaneous play, and natural exploration have taken a backseat to technology innovations that distract us.
As a result of all of this e-inundation, we find more children and adults suffering from health conditions such as obesity and diabetes. Prioritizing physical activity through outdoor play is an essential part of establishing healthy habits for your family and setting your children up for wellness success as they grow.
The outdoor playset provides a world of imagination and adventure for kids of all ages. Putting the right one in your backyard for your kiddos will make all the difference in reigniting their natural curiosity. You can craft custom designed playsets that cater to your child’s unique capabilities and interests. Here are some things to consider as you make this important purchase to stimulate and provide wellness opportunities for your precious children.
One of the most important factors in your research involves your child’s safety. Playsets come in various styles with both new and old variations of play; take into account the following questions when determining whether a playset is right for your children:
- Is it age-appropriate?
- Are swing chains covered with soft, pliable rubber, or are they made of plastic?
- Are elements spaced out properly and protected at higher heights?
- Does the playset have enough space around it to avoid collisions and accidents?
- Does the playset provide adequate sun protection?
Wood playsets are efficient, but make sure you opt for high-quality wood that will hold up under the elements. Durable plastics and sturdy, lead-free paint-covered metal will also last well in all types of weather, and they tend to last a bit longer than wood models.
Avoid playsets with a great deal of metal as the hot sun can really raise the temperature of this material. Choosing a sun shade over the swing set makes sense for hot Florida summers as it protects your little ones from sunburn and provides cooler surfaces for children to play on. A sun shade over the swing set can involve small or large portions of shade, depending on your customizable preferences.
The average lifespan of a child’s “well-loved” playset is about 10 years. Keep in mind, however, that your child will grow and change his abilities and interests over the life of your set. Customizable sets provide options for adaptability, allowing you to alter them as your kids grow older to provide relevant play opportunities.
