Backyard Playgrounds

April 5, 2012

A backyard play area is a wonderful addition to any home.  It allows children to play and enjoy the outdoors while parents easily supervisor their play and even join in.  The need for exercise has never been greater with children sitting in front of the television and play video games for hours at a time.  By incorporating a play area in your backyard you child will rediscover the delights of outdoor play.

Adding a play area to your backyard can be easily and inexpensively done.

Depending on your budget all or anyone of the following can make a great outlet for fun and exercise right in your own backyard.

1) Residential play gym – typically a play gym is the inspiration for building a backyard play area.  Play gyms come in a variety of materials and sizes.  Wooden play gyms are a good and sturdy choice of material.  These play gyms come with colorful slides, ropes,  ladders and tubes for your child to explore and have fun with.  You can easily find one that will fit your backyard and your budget.

2) Sandbox – this can be a great do it yourself project, simple and very inexpensive.  The materials you’ll need for this project are four pieces of pressure-treated wood and some two-and-a-half inch galvanized wood screws. To build a 6X6 foot sandbox, the wood will need to be six feet long. Two by eights work well for this project. Eight inches is a nice depth for a sandbox. It makes tall-enough sides to keep the sand in, but it’s low enough so your kids can easily get in and out of the box.

Lay the pressure-treated wood out in the shape of a square inside the stringed area. Grab two pieces of the eight-inch wide lumber and butt them together at the ends to make a corner. You may need a helper to hold the pieces in place while you use a battery-operated drill with a Phillips head bit to begin inserting the galvanized wood screws into the wood. Start two inches up and insert a screw. Then, advance two more inches and insert a second wood screw. Go up an additional two inches and secure the two pieces of wood together with the third screw. Repeat the process with the other three corners, and the frame of the homemade sandbox for the kids to play in is basically complete! But, before you move onto the next step, make sure the frame is in the center of the cleared out spot in your yard.

Now all you need to do is to fill your homemade sandbox with sand, and it’s ready for the kids to enjoy!

3) Exercise equipment – This is simple!  Jump ropes, frisbees, balls, trampolines, whatever your children will enjoy and whatever your budget can afford.

4) Vegetable garden – a small patch in the backyard to grow vegetable allows you child to not only see how vegetables grow but get great exercise while weeding, sowing the seeds, watering and picking vegetables.  They feel a great sense of accomplishment once those tiny seeds begin to grow and become vegetables.

5) Flower garden – Plant an annual garden with primroses, tulips and day lily bulbs to help them learn about plant propagation.  Have fun, make this garden colorful and fun.  Your child will not only get great exercise but will get them interested in nature.

Once your backyard play area is ready for fun let your child invite some friends over to try it out.  Don’t forget to incorporate in your plan an eating area where they can gather after a long day at play to have some healthy snacks, maybe even some vegetables from their very own garden!
