Fun Summer Backyard Playset Activities

Summer is here, and it is the perfect time for kids to enjoy the great outdoors! The opportunities for enjoyment and exploration in your backyard are infinite when you have a Woodplay playset. These playsets not only keep kids entertained for hours on end, but they also help kids grow in a lot of ways. From swinging to decorating, here is how to make the most out of your Woodplay playset this summer!

The Benefits of Swinging

Not only is swinging an enjoyable pastime, but it is also very good for kids’ growth. Here are a few of the main advantages:

  1. Physical Fitness: Children’s muscle development, balance, and coordination all increase when children swing.
  2. Sensory Integration: Swinging stimulates the inner ear, which aids in balance and spatial orientation. It does this by going back and forth.
  3. Mental Relaxation: Children who swing often can experience a reduction in tension and an uplift in mood.
  4. Social Skills: Cooperation, sharing, and taking turns are all emphasized when playing on a swing set with friends. These are all essential social skills.

DIY Decorations: Personalize Your Playset

Allow our kids to express their creativity by letting them add safe and enjoyable personalization to their Woodplay playset. They can incorporate a little bit of personality that represents their interests whether it’s animals, space, or their favorite characters, by using removable stickers that are suitable for outdoor use. Hanging homemade banners and flags from the playsets adds a festive and distinctive touch. These can be fashioned from fabric or paper and decorated with paints, markers, or stickers. Additionally, if the surfaces of your playset are wooden, let your children write messages or draw using washable chalk. This will provide them with a quick and enjoyable method to show their creativity. The Woodplay chalkboard is also a perfect accessory to add to your playset.

Fun Backyard Games and Activities

Playset fun can be enhanced with entertaining outdoor games and activities. Here are a few suggestions to extend the summertime fun!

  1. Treasure Hunt: Make a map or series of clues for your kids to follow and hide tiny toys or coins throughout the playground. This task encourages problem-solving while including an element of adventure.
  2. Obstacle Course: Include running, leaping, crawling, and climbing in a larger obstacle course that incorporates the playset. They will become more agile and resilient as a result of this game.
  3. Water Play: Place a kiddie pool or sprinkler next to the playset on hot summer days. In between climbing and swinging, kids can cool off. Make sure the playground is non-slip and be sure to supervise.
  4. Nature Exploration: To start a backyard nature excursion, use the playset as a base camp. Give out magnifying glasses, binoculars, or a bug collection kit. Encourage kids to study the plants, birds, and insects that surround the playset.

  1. Story Time: Set up a comfortable reading nook on the playset or close by. Pull a few blankets, pillows, and a basket of books. This can provide a calm diversion from energetic play.
