Why Outdoor Playsets Are a Springtime Staple
Parents with very active, high-energy kids know that physical activity and time outdoors are essential for their high-rev youngsters! The best outdoor playsets allow young children to run around, crawl, jump, hang, climb, and explore the physical world around them. Time outside in nature has been proven to provide psychological benefits and mood-lifting effects.
It can also help strengthen the immune system, improve sleep, and more. An afternoon on the outdoor playset not only supplies a daily dose of physical activity, but a healthy serving of mental exercise too. The new environments and obstacles of these whimsical outdoor playsets for kids stimulate the imaginations of all who wander around them! Here are some of the ways that outdoor playsets can introduce a world of wonder to your curious kids:
Classic Outdoor Playsets for Toddlers
There are many great options for outdoor playsets, especially for young children. Here are some of the best outdoor playsets for toddlers!
Mini Playground and Picnic Playset
Most typical outdoor playsets for toddlers will include a slide with some sort of step ladder or climbing element to help your child ascend to the top. The idea of a life-sized game of chutes and ladders may seem simple, but you might be surprised at how long the game of up and down and up and down can keep your little ones entertained. Some playsets, such as the Jack and Jill Wooden Playset, include special features like a sandbox, rock wall, and picnic table attachment for an afternoon jam-packed with new activities and learning.
On the Jack and Jill Wooden Playset, you can teach your kids to experiment with new movements like climbing, stepping, and sliding. Next, your young explorer can search the sand like an archeologist, or build sandcastles while building up their motor skills. Finally, they can enjoy a fun-sized picnic after all their hard work (and play!)
