A few tips for choosing garden games
Choosing garden games can be complicated, especially for new parents. Especially since the manufacturers offer a lot of activities. Some let the kids relax, others let them exercise. However, it is important to select a playground according to the following criteria:
Each outdoor game targets a specific age group (under 3 years old, 3 to 10 years old, etc.). In fact, the chosen structure must adapt to the child’s abilities and tastes. If several children of different ages go to play together, the ideal is to choose a playground equipped with several tools.
Watch your child play in the park or at friends’ houses. Is he used to having fun alone or in a team? Does he like creative or more sporty games? You need to know what outdoor activities to offer him: a hut, a trampoline, a climbing wall or a slide.
Whether on the porch or in the garden, the space chosen for the playground must be large enough to accommodate. No need to invest in a large inflatable pool that will not fit into a small exterior! The planned location also needs to be clear for comfort and safety. Specifically, provide a clearance between 1.50 m and 2 m around the playground.
Sandboxes, cottages and plastic slides are very popular with young children. Their advantage? Colors, playful shapes and easy to clean. For their part, wooden outdoor games have the advantage of being strong as well as easily integrated into the garden.
The material to be preferred for gantry, metal is synonymous with firmness. In addition, no maintenance is required! On the other hand, wooden gates are more aesthetic. However, they need regular treatment to prolong their life.
Weight indications should not be taken lightly. Before your child buys the maximum load supported by the structure for safe steam, check whether it is a trampoline, a slide or a climbing frame.
Good to know: Whether you choose a sporty or creative outdoor sport, be sure to install it on a flat surface. Sand, grass and shock-absorbing mats are all solutions to avoid falling.
