How? Build a safe playground for the kids to use.
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.
With time however, things have changed drastically as parents now realize that it is possible to build a playground – even though small – at the back of their homes. While it does cost a bit more then your average toy the rewards in terms of safety and monitoring are phenomenal. Even though building a safe playground at the back of your house costs a lot, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the playground equipments are safe for the kids.
Also check all moving parts and devices to make sure they still have a smooth action. Tell your children to let you know anytime is broken or seems out of whack, but even then, you will need to do your own periodic check.
One of the best ways you can be sure of the integrity in the equipment your children are playing on is by setting up a small playground in your own yard so that you have full control of the environment. Always make sure that you have created a setup that is easy to monitor. If your children are very young, you should never let them play alone. Older kids may come with some leeway, but there should always be an adult close by who is checking from time to time to make sure things are on the up and up.
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.
