Why a backyard playset is a perfect gift for kids

Summertime is the prime time to get your kids – or grandkids – outside in the fresh air and warm Mesa, Arizona sun. 

Outside play is preferable to screen time for many reasons, and a playground outdoors is a cheap alternative to expensive summer camps or other structured outdoor activities.

Outdoor playgrounds are also a way to keep your kids or grandkids close to home and safe while they’re getting exercise and letting their imaginations run wild at the same time. Plus, providing a family outdoor playground is the quickest way to become the favorite parent or grandparent! 

Finally, there’s nothing quite like seeing a child’s face light up when they see an outdoor playset in their backyard for the very first time and learn that it’s all theirs. 

A new playset brings the family together

And, of course, playing outside is something you can do together with your kids or grandkids, unlike screen time, which is often a solitary activity. It’s important to keep in mind the 3 Ps of play when playing outdoors with your kids or grandkids: 

  1. Play at Home
  2. Play Together
  3. Play Safe

Get Ready to Play Your Way

Remember, there’s no wrong way to play! When kids are engaged in creative, physical play, it fosters their imagination and keeps them physically active. Read more about some great backyard play ideas here! 

Play is one of the most important things kids need to learn and grow. And it’s definitely something they don’t get enough of in the traditional education system. So when kids are inside all day with their heads bent over their desks, no wonder they get restless and start itching to go outside and play! 

And when you have outdoor play equipment in your backyard, all of the neighborhood kids can come somewhere safe to play where you or other parents/grandparents can keep an eye on them. So backyard playgrounds provide convenience as well.
