in Houses is not only a place for us to rest from all routine work activities, But Houses must also be a place to play for children.
As parents who have toddlers we should also think about the right to play children. It’s not beautiful if we when building a house are just fixated on a good interior design or others without thinking about children’s playground.
There are many ways you can do if you have vacant land in the backyard or front of the house. For example, you can make a private garden or gazebo.
For more details, let’s look at tips and how to create a children’s playground
Tips & How to make a Children’s Playground at Home
1. Separate children’s playground with other spaces
If you have other outdoor space, for example where you store plants or pets, then you have to make a clear screen, so that the children don’t enter it. You can make this bulkhead by building a wooden fence. It can also make it look natural by growing shady plants or gardens around the house.
2. Selection of wood / tools for playgrounds
There are many types of games that you can use. Some of these tools use wood as the base material. For this reason, precision is needed in the selection of wood materials. In some countries, arsenic-coated wood should not be used, because it is not good for children’s health. Therefore, you should choose fresh wood, which is protected only with organic insecticides, so it is friendly to children and the environment.
3. Installation of play equipment
As mentioned earlier, there are many play tools that you can use. For example, the most popular is swing. In order for this swing to be safer, you can use a bucket chair, so that it can be used by many ages. If your child is older, you can replace it with a rope chair.
Then you can install tunnels, which are suitable for children to crawl, explore themselves with nature. Also add a short staircase that is useful for training children to climb. If necessary, add a balance beam, which is very suitable for playgrounds for children aged 3 to 5 years.
Also add other play tools that your child likes. For example, water pools and sand pools. There is also slide, basketball ring, goal to play football, and so on.
4. Installation itself
If you don’t want to hire experts, you can create a children’s playground at home. The usual equipment needed is a saw, measuring tape, drill, screwdriver, hammer, pliers, and others. Always make sure that the material and shape of the playground used is really safe for your child.
Don’t forget, place the play tool in the right position, not collide with each other when used by more than one child. Straps used on swings must also be strong, with materials that do not hurt the child’s skin.
