Create your own children’s playground in the rules of the obstacle course!
Ah, it’s been sunny for several weeks now and the best days of summer are yet to come! It is therefore imminent to update the garden, if it has not been done yet, to match the mood summer happy. We’ve already looked at how to build your own home and what barbecue accessories you need for successful grilling. But at these outdoor parties there will certainly be a group of people who will be bored with just chatting with snacks and refreshing beverages, and that’s understandable … Let’s admit it, your daughters and boys will surely need some entertainment to be able to stay in the same place for hours. And here is where the main advantage of a playground for children installed in the garden!
The presence of a playground for children in the garden is no longer a fad reserved for families somewhat extravagant. It is now an effective way for parents to simply enjoy a few moments of peace and relaxation among peers. And you do not have to sell the car or mortgage the house so you can afford an extra.
So, forget the costly and cumbersome constructions ready to install and realize your own playful space full of fantasy! The truth is that little ones can have fun without necessarily having a labyrinth of houses, slides, swings, climbing walls and so on. We must squarely awaken their curiosity and work their competitive spirit and the case is halfway in the bag!
In this regard, we do not propose to make a playground for children like all the others … On the contrary, improvise a sports ground obstacle course and it is 100% guaranteed that kids will love it immediately! At some point you will see that even your supposedly adult friends will feel tempted to test themselves. The idea tempts you, but you do not know where to start and what exactly do you do to materialize it? No problem, Deavita comes to the rescue!
Childrens play area obstacle course – a great idea!
It should be noted that you should not worry about the safety of your kids … at least not more than you usually do. When you say “an obstacle course kids playground” you do not have in mind a set of challenges straight out of Ninja Warroir. There are safe events suitable for all ages and you will be convinced by consulting the images below.
For example, kindergarten children can walk on all fours as they did well until recently. But this time the goal is to crawl like a soldier passing under various overhanging obstacles. The unique condition: do not forget to replace the barbed wire with red woolen threads, fabric ribbons, multicolored pool noodles or something like that.
In order to make things even more interesting for kids, you can suggest to them that woolen threads and red ribbons are therefore lasers that they should not touch by crawling them from underneath. Thus, the noodles floats will become massive beams, the hoops placed on the ground will turn into holes without bottom etc. What matters is to stimulate their imagination and trigger their innate sports temperament.
Children’s playground “The obstacle course”
In fact, whole military training abounds in such competitions that parents can easily adapt to the needs of the current idea. Running, with or without additional obstacles, climbing ropes, walls and nets and jumping in all its variants are just a few of the exercises to use as a starting point for your unique challenges to overcome.
So, you will have your own playground for children in the rules of a real obstacle course! In addition, you will need only everyday objects rather banal to make the field so entertaining. Naturally, the most skillful and ambitious moms and dads can make special obstacles from pallets or other reclaimed wood, but this is not essential to the success of your project.
As a general rule, you will need: a few chairs used as supports for the under-mentioned noodles floats, plastic buckets as cones for the “zigzag” race, a hoop and a rope for the disciplines related to jumping ( footed bell or other), an exercise mat for the rolls front and back, jute bags for the famous race of the same name. Other objects of this kind can also be useful in setting up
Children’s play area inspired by sports and Olympic disciplines
Then, toddlers can also walk on a beam as athletes do in artistic gymnastics. Of course, for reasons of safety, it must be wide enough, placed directly on the lawn or at a minimum height of the ground and free of apparent surface irregularities. Sports and Olympic disciplines are therefore also quite inspiring in the invention of our playground for children.
Throwing objects into a crate or inside a hoop is another activity to include in the path of difficulties to overcome. Like this game, you can also organize a children’s bowling alley and other similar outdoor activities. Do you feel short of ideas? The visual gallery to follow you will be particularly useful in this regard, enjoy!
Ideas for other outdoor activities to complete the playful kid pitch
Everyone will agree that a children’s playground inspired by the top athletes’ courses and modified to match the child’s abilities is a great solution if you want to tame the excessive energy of some kids and channel it in the right direction. But many girls and boys are not as active and prefer less competitive or more artistic activities.
For these delicate souls, we can offer some “wiser” games that are just as fun as previous competitions. For example, children’s bowling can take on many original shapes that stimulate imagination and creativity as well as skill. The most skilful can even make the bowling pins themselves and the other necessary equipment! For this purpose, plastic bottles, cardboard cylindrical boxes and empty rolls of toilet paper are proving invaluable!
Then make a hopscotch placed directly on the lawn is a simple idea and super-fun at a time! Naturally, it is adults who must “lay the foundations” of an ambitious project of this kind. Anyway, the kids will be happy to write the numbers or just participate in the decoration with chalk. Moreover, hopscotch so made can also be part of a playground for children obstacle course.
