In the past twenty years, childhood obesity rates have did more than double and that’s not the only problem that has increased. Pediatricians are handing out more antidepressants to children now than ever before by a pretty steep increase and the U.S.A. has become the largest consumer of ADHD medications across the globe. It’s really stressful on our kids to be so out of shape and cooped up. With the weather nice and warm, it’s the perfect time to get them out there playing and being active and social with other kids.
Play is not just “play”. Kids are out having fun and enjoying their time while they are developing a lot of skills that will allow them to handle the real world as they grow older easier and they are exercising without even knowing it. The importance of play can’t be emphasized enough.
Along with how important play is, it is also important to make sure your kids are playing in a safe environment. Always check play equipment and make sure nothing is loose or able to become a hazard to a child. Here at Creative Playscapes, we make the safety of the children our number one priority. We create an environment where kids can play, learn, and grow into healthy, well rounded individuals without parents and caregivers having to worry about what they are playing on. When it comes to kids, you can never be too safe and we have strict guidelines and restrictions to help make sure nothing is overlooked.
Safety Starts w/ Stability!
