Childhood memory

No Comments 2:25 pm Author: Richard Category:Best Outdoor, Playsets

Maybe you (like me) grew up playing on a cheap metal swing set (that wasn’t even anchored properly) – you know the type – where the legs would tip up out of the ground when you swung too high. Then, some of us have fond childhood memories of a next-door-neighbor who had the nicest backyard swing set in town, with multiple forts, a spiral slide, glider swings and a rope ladder. Whichever experience  – or neither – backyard playground equipment provides hours of fun for kids, and often becomes a refuge for free playtime. You want your kids to have the …

Playing outdoors will help kids develop strong muscles and a cheerful disposition. One of the outdoor playground equipment options that children enjoy is a playground slide. It is fun to see children taking turns on a playground slide.  There is something about going up the ladder of the playground slide and letting gravity, inch by inch, pull you down the playground slide. For kids, going up and down the playground slide is never tiring. The wind rushing through the kid’s hair accompanied by the thrill of sliding down the ground unscathed is an exhilarating experience. Children love a playground slide so …

Access to outdoor playground equipment placed in natural green settings is very beneficial for childrens’ mental health as well as their physical and emotional development.
