"Healthy kids are happy kids!"
Before the days of mobile phones and tablet, it used to be easy to get kids outside and moving. However, this is difficult today.
Our kids are getting on iPads and cell phones earlier than ever, and the time they spend outside is decreasing.
But the good news is that by simply having a swing set in your backyard, your kids will not only easily be able to go outside and play, they’ll WANT to!
We all know the benefits of exercise, especially for children, and having a place to play that’s convenient to reach will get kids moving quickly. The increased activity, happening more often, will keep your kids healthy.
BEING IN THE GREAT OUTDOORS
Getting kids outside in the fresh air and bright sunlight is great for them. Being outside for extended periods of time boosts the immune system, calms the overly-active brain, lifts the general outlook and mental health, generates more positivity, and lowers levels of stress and instances of depression. In fact, playing outdoors in nature can even boost creativity and focus, so get on board this natural mood-enhancer and boost your kids’ self-esteems the healthy way.
PROMOTE SOCIAL INTERACTION
Kids often move to the swing set in pairs, where they play games while swinging back and forth. They also promote sharing and team play — since one child can swing while the other pushes them.
By playing on a swing set, your child is going to get better at making friends and socializing, a skill that will help them in school, and later in life once they start working.
SWING SETS ARE HEALTHY FOR PARENTS, TOO!
Parents actually gain health benefits from owning a swing set as well. Remember, the healthier your kids are, the happier they’ll be as well. So take care of their mental, emotional, and physical well being all in one shot with an invigorating outdoor playhouse or swing set, and leave the door to imagination and health wide open!
