Children are the gift of God. It is important that they are happy and have many different activities to enjoy, so that they grow healthy and strong. Keeping children engaged with adventure, excitement and challenge is very important to provide balance to their lives. Schools provide education to children and also to a certain extent enable children to enjoy different activities like sports, debates and community service.
Education is a very important of a kids life and provides the foundation for his or her future. But equally important is physical and mental health which can be made possible with doing sports, paying in playgrounds or performing different activities that interest the kid.
Playgrounds provide a host of activities for children. Most neighborhoods have their own parks in which there are playgrounds. Schools have playgrounds as well and kids of all ages love to play here. Playgrounds have different kinds of activities that go on in the vicinity. For example one part of the playground may have the fields in which different games are played for eg. soccer, baseball, basketball etc.
Another part of the playground may house the Library. Yet another may have a dog park where people come to give exercise to their pets. The most attractive part of the playground for kids is the equipment area, where they can have fun on different kinds of structures.
Modern playgrounds provide different kids of play equipment like the slide, see saw, jungle gym, slide, sandbox etc. There may also be different play houses and mazes. These help kids build strength, flexibility and co-ordination. Play structures allow kids to use their creativity and enjoy moving in them.
Safety is extremely important to make sure the kid is protected and avoids falling down and injuring himself. Playscapes have also provide for natural play experience for kids in a natural setting.
Playgrounds help kids play with different kids and share common experiences. Parents set up play dates for their kids with other kids of the same age and take their kids to play in the park. This is a great way for kids to socialize and get to know each other. In Australia cubby houses became very popular with kids.
It is also called a wendy house. The cubby houses or “cubbies” were historically built by children. These were built from scrap materials found in gardens or wastelands. These were not very permanent structures and lasted for only one holiday season at times. But safety became a concern and resulted in the creation fully built units or play structures in backyards. Sometimes kids may get more adventurous and build Treehouses as well. Playgrounds are very popular with kids and provide them with activity that they can cherish and enjoy.
