If you are a parent you would have experienced taking your child to the playground. I think they are brilliant resource for everyone to use and here is why.
They get you out the house and get you away from the four walls or watching too much tv.
Playgrounds are a great way of getting a change of scenery and be surrounded by green. Sometimes, just getting away from the same places is a blessing in disguise.
If there is one thing I love more then anything in the world as a parent is finding fun things to do with my child that are free because let’s face it children come with a bloody big price tag, especially when they hit school. So, if I can save some money somewhere then going to the playground is one. Plus it helps with keeping children entertained and stop complaining for awhile that they are a bored.
Playgrounds are great for exercise, playing chase, walking or even pushing a child on the swing all contributes to keeping you active.
Going to the playground allows you to blow some cobwebs of and get some much needed fresh air. It also provides a mental boost, and helps clear your head. It really is amazing such a small and simple activity can have a huge impact on making you feel less crap and giving you the change to think more clearer.
Visiting a playground outdoors gives the child the opportunity to get vitamin D from being out in the fresh air and help build strength in their bones.
Playgrounds encourage free play, where the child decides what they want to do, they can even make up their own games or use their imagination on the playground apparatus. This next point coincides with the above one in the fact that a child can test out there communional skills with socialising with other children at the playground. Therefore possibility of working together to establish what they want to do. There is also the positive effect of finding a person to share the enjoyment of play with someone who has similar interests in what they like to do in the playground.
Therefore I conclude that playgrounds are ACE!
