When you have kids at home, it’s best to take some time to actually build a playground for them so that they can have fun and feel the warmth that home brings. As kids grow up, they need to be able to explore their environment and see how everything works by playing up with their imagination. Kids who are given the chance to play are also given the chance to stimulate their brains and let their personalities and talents come out as well.
The term natural playground implies structures that use natural materials and existing topology to design a play area that promotes open-ended play. The existing topology includes trees, rocks, logs, water, and other natural elements that can be utilized for children’s playing. The reason why I am emphasizing on natural playgrounds is they stimulate creativity among children. Below are some of the most effective reasons to consider.
Leave Some Open Play Space – Having one of those really nice custom jungle gyms installed will certainly delight your kids but they still need a little bit of plain old open play space as well. A simple grassy area is fine as it will make a great venue for tag, ball games and whatever else the children can dream up. Having a few trees planted around this area for shade is something to consider as well.
A simple, cheap addition is a basketball hoop-hang it low enough for your kids, and of course, a chunk of pavement is typically an asset for dribbling. Don’t let it hold you back though-as I mentioned before, my brothers and I played by shooting through a bicycle rim nailed to a piece of dirty plywood, and believe it or not, we were dribbling on hard dirt that had been swept clean.
Community playground structures provide the kids a safe and hygienic place to meet and have fun together. Besides kids such structures also form an interesting get together place for the stay at home mothers. It is a suitable place to take a morning walk with pet animals. Organizing birthday parties and other social events for the kids and the entire community at large forms one of the biggest benefits of playground structures. Besides mastering basic skills and working in coordination with others, playgrounds also help in sharpening the skills of the children.
Weather resistant – If the tires of your car can easily endure rain, snow, summer heat, hail and other weather conditions, so will your playground surface made from recycled rubber.
