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.
Specialized Play Areas – Specialized play areas are quite easy to create. A wide paved area can become a basketball court with the addition of a couple of inexpensive portable hoops and a few dabs of masonry paint can create a permanent hopscotch area.
The older children, on the other hand, may be a little bit more aware of the dangers, but they also let to see how far they can push it and have begun to discover how fun a little adrenaline can be. This can lead to some very serious injuries.
Durability – There is very little point in investing time, money and effort into creating a backyard playground if you are then going to stock it with fragile plants and shrubs that will inevitably serve as kid magnets and get destroyed.
3. Are there potential traps or tripping hazards?
If you are not going to be around while children are playing, make sure that the playground, whether a public one or an activity center at their school, will have an adult around, keeping an eye on things. An adult can watch to make sure the kids aren’t being unsafe in their play. They also are responsible for taking care of the situation if something does occur, and the best adult supervision is someone who has some type of first aid training.
