If most kids are like I used to be, then most likely they are spending a good portion of their days out there at the playground. That’s where all the kids in the neighborhood hang out and it’s where any child can find plenty of ways to have fun.
There’s everything a child needs to have a stimulating and joyful experience.
But if you have a nice back yard, you can also build your own playground and have every child in the neighborhood come to your place to spend the afternoon and enjoy the fine piece of art. Your kid will definitely be the center of attention and the envy of every other youngster.
If you have some skills, you can build it yourself. Setting up a swing is as easy as fixing a strong enough piece of wood and tying up a couple of ropes. Putting up a great rocking chair requires a little more talent and engineering skills, but it can also be done pretty easily.
You would still need to get a plastic slide, but step by step, building a unique playground for your child is a doable job.
For a price range starting from a couple of hundreds of dollars to a few thousands, you can purchase a complete playground, with everything included (slides, swings, rocking chairs etc), all in bright and playful colors.
Some of the choices are theme based, others are age specific. Some have room for two or three kids while others have room for the whole neighborhood. You have both indoor and outdoor playgrounds. The spectrum of alternatives is enormous.
The prices will definitely make you think whether it’s really worth to invest in one or just take your kid to the neighborhood park and have fun there. That will depend on your particular circumstances, but any child will surely enjoy a lot more his own playground.
