3 Fun Winter Playground Ideas to Keep the Kids Entertained
Active kids are happy kids. There is no denying the benefits of moving and playing for children during their development. It helps them grow strong, healthy bodies, it’s good for their cardiovascular system, and it even supports their immune system. On top of that, it also helps to stimulate their imagination and channels their energy – and it gives us as parents a moment to rest. During summer, this is usually not a problem, but how do you motivate your kids to play and get some fresh air during the colder months? We look at some fun winter playground ideas to help you create an outdoor wonderland for your kids.
1. Super-fun slides
Now, we may not have the snowy white winter wonderland here in South Africa as one always sees on TV. But we do have beautiful and sunny winter days that make it possible for kids to spend an entire afternoon outside on the playground, living their best life. And, we have some great ideas. Recreate the fun of snow sleighs with a selection of awesome slides, big and small, to keep kids busy for hours!
2. Fairytale castle jungle gyms
Kids have the most incredible imaginations. Why not help it along? One of the most popular playground ideas is to provide them with their own winter wonderland castle. A wonderful jungle gym with different levels, slides, ladders, swings and more can transform any kid into an Elsa or Kristoff for days. The fun never ends.
3. Jolly swing seats
Worried about a lack of space? Then get a sturdy swing seat that can fit into a small garden, or even a porch. A porch swing seat is great even for rainy days. What’s more, they don’t only have to be for the kids. Imagine gently swinging while enjoying the view from your porch with your morning coffee in hand… Bliss.
