Encouraging your kids to go outside and play is harder than it was a couple of decades ago. With so many devices keeping them indoors, you need something truly impressive to get them moving and outside. For many children, an outdoor playset in their backyard is just the thing to pique their interest and encourage regular exercise and other health benefits in the process.
1. Engage in Physical Activity
Over the last 30 years, childhood obesity has been on the rise. No doubt the sedentary lifestyles that most people lead today has played some role in this. However, with the help of an outdoor playset, you provide your children with immediate access to playing outside and receiving regular physical activity.
2. Improve Balance & Coordination
Playing on a swing set from an early age helps children develop the way they physically move and how they perceive the world around them. Swinging alone works your child’s vestibular (inner ear balance) and proprioceptive systems (informs the brain when the body is standing) simultaneously, and strengthens their balance and coordination skills.
3. Promote Social Interactions
Mental health is just as important as physical health, and an outdoor playset is a great way to encourage children to make friends. A backyard playset offers many opportunities for your child to learn to interact with other kids. This helps them learn to share and develop teamwork skills. It also teaches them to engage and make friends with others more quickly.
