Easy maintenance – Playground rubber flooring can be used both indoors as well as outside. Rubber flooring resists dust, allergens and even water. This means that liquid spills will not damage the floor surface. Because of its high resistance, mold and fungi will not be able to anchor to your floors either. You can sweep your playground floor, or wash it with a mild soapy solution. Never use harsh cleaning agents or chemicals.
A natural playground is the one that promotes playing through natural settings. The benefits available in a natural setting can’t be found in a conventional setup. Allow your kids to be more creative by exposing them to natural setups. Don’t dictate them what and what not to play, but do take safety measures for them.
Shock absorbance – You need a surface that can withstand lots of jumping, bouncing, and other activities kids are famous for doing. The flooring should also be somewhat springy as to limit the injuries when I child falls off the play equipment.
Some playgrounds are also simple soil or grass, but this comes with problems as well. Soil becomes hard-packed over time, especially with children running around on it, and in the long run it may even end up as hard as asphalt.
Children love to play outdoors and have fun with their friends. I believe they should be encouraged to go out instead of just concentrating on kids’ toys inside the house so they can take in fresh air and have some exercise. We, however, must make sure that the playgrounds we set up in our own backyards are safe for use.
Bring water and first-aid kit to the playground as well as extra clothes and handy wipes. Kids can mess up and get dirty while playing not to mention how much they sweat. It would be better to have them cleaned and dressed up after playing. Also keep them hydrated with water. In addition, though we may expect that there are personnel to give first-aid, it would be best to bring your own for immediate response to any accidents.
