Castle Themed Playground Equipment
Far from being an incidental add-on to a school curriculum or a mere diversion for kids at a community center, house of worship, county park, or other public location, outdoor play has proven to be vital for the intellectual and social development of children. Safe, sturdy, and inviting playground equipment is one of the best ways that you can encourage the children under your care to play well outdoors, and here at AAA State of Play, there are many playground equipment designs that children and educators love. Among the most popular choices in our catalog is our castle playground equipment, and there are options for purchase that are suitable for institutions and budgets of every size.
Why Experts Recommend Playing Outside?
Most of us are familiar with the growing obesity rates for children in the United States, which is attributable in large measure to reduced outdoor activity. Yet, weight gain is not the only potential harm that can result when kids do not spend enough time outside. Pediatricians and child psychologists note that children who engage in outdoor activities in play castles or other playground equipment tend to experience greater physical confidence and even enhanced mental development. Combining play on inviting playground structures with time spent outdoors has even proven to make children smarter. Therefore, setting up that kids play castle near an open area where the kids can also play increases the benefits of playing outside.
Why Should My Institution Buy an Outdoor Play Castle?
As you can see in our extensive online playground equipment selection, you have many options to choose from when you are installing a new outdoor play area. That raises the question as to why you should choose a castle playground over other options. Let us first state that we believe no one-size-fits-all outdoor equipment solution exists that can meet every need. Some schools and other institutions may find another themed playground option in our catalog more suitable for their needs. You may even want to forego a theme altogether and just build a traditional no-themed playground with swings, slides, and other equipment piece by piece. Nevertheless, there are good reasons to seriously consider play castles and similar equipment and environments for your institution. Here are a few of them:
- Castle equipment allows you to reenact castle-themed stories, making for a learning experience that can combine indoor reading with outdoor fun.
- There are many different outdoor play castle sizes and shapes, which makes it simple to build a grand structure if your budget and outdoor acreage allows it, or a more modest yet entertaining play area if you have more limitations.
- Each kids play castle includes a variety of options that kids love such as swings and slides.
- Several outdoor castle equipment options come in a modular format that allows you to custom-design your playground with ease.
- Castle Playground Equipment is naturally inviting to the imagination, which encourages children to come up with their own stories, fight their own pretend battles, and otherwise make active use of their imagination. This use of imagination is absolutely critical for their cognitive development.
