  • Benefits of Your Swing Set (You Didn't Realize Until Now)

    2e1ax_vintage_entry_sky-kids

    Swing sets are good, old fashioned fun. What else can your children do that’s in the convenience of your backyard, can be enjoyed for hours on end and gives you and your kids the advantage of fresh air and zero guilt? While you may know that swing sets are a great addition to your backyard, what you may not know is how many benefits they offer! Here are some creative and usual advantages your swing set brings to your kids life.

    It Boosts Their Self-Esteem

    Sigh…how childhood has changed from when you were one. The biggest reason for this? There’s less and less opportunity for kids to act like kids. From academic to athletic pressures at school; peer pressure to cyber bullying, kids need a place that is safe, is assessable and can improve their self-esteem in one shot! That’s the beauty of swing sets. There’s no ‘downside’ or risk to having one (unlike so many other manufactured kids toys on the market) because with each slide, step or swing they engage in, they’re building confidence. They’re releasing anxiety. Best of all, they’re feeling good about themselves again.

    It Allows Them to Improve Their Problem Solving Skills

    Whether you have a five year old or a fifteen year old, children use any and every opportunity to learn. They learn about the world through what you say, and what you do. They learn how to act by how their friends act, or what’s suggested on TV. But invest in one of our Ultimate Swing Set Series, and they’ll learn, examine, assess, and come up with their own conclusions for swinging, sliding and playing their heart out! When you give them the gift of a swing set, you’re putting your mind at ease by knowing that their mind is sharpening and their body is strengthening. But to your kids, they’ll just think you’re the best parent there could ever be! It’s a win/win.

    It Promotes an Active Lifestyle

    When you were young, you didn’t have video games or the internet to keep your indoors. Sure, while that may make you sound a bit…old(!) this was a good thing. You had the advantage of fresh air and exercise (probably in excess!) whereas for kids now days, it’s much more of a challenge. The fact is, if your children aren’t being active, then chances are they’re ripping into a bag of potato chips and zoning out into a marathon of their favorite TV show. Ultimately, this sets a precedent for a sedentary life, not an engaging, interactive one.

    Swing sets on the other hand, promote an active lifestyle.  It encourages a healthy outlet to release stress and excess energy—because let’s face it, when it comes to your growing children, you’re always on the lookout for a new way that they can release their pent up energy and enthusiasm!

    Our swing sets are designed to allow your children to have good, old fashioned fun—the kind of fun you once had.  Check out our top of the line swing sets that aren’t just kid-approved, but meet your demands too! Start creating childhood memories today!

    Backyard Activities That Can’t Be Beat!

    While you love going to the movies, and chatting with each other over dinner—it’s easy to feel like as a family, you’re doing the same thing day after day.  If you had your way, you’d love to stir up the pot with some new, creative ways to spend time together as a family (and get that look of boredom off of your kids face!) Sit back and relax, because we’ve got three suggestions that are just what you’re looking for!

    Bring the Beach to Your Backyard

    If you don’t have the chance to head to the sand and surf too often, who says you can’t bring the beach to you? Whether you have toddlers or school aged children, a sandbox is a great way to give them the excitement of the beach, without having to make a day trip to one. If you want to get them really excited about spending hours making sandcastles in your backyard, look online for specials on clever sandbox bases—you can find creative fire trucks or fairytale castles to hold your sandbox in (that you can’t always find at your local store.)

    Create Memories With a Swing Set

    There’s no getting around it—when you invest in a swing set, you’re creating memories for your entire family. Do your son and daughter fight like cats and dogs? The swing set should take care of that. Does your 8 year old only child seem to continually have a look of boredom on her face? Put a swing set in your back yard and she’ll squeal with delight as she slides and swings for hours on end. Buy our Dreamscape swing set, and in addition to our sale price, you’ll receive delivery and installation for free. What’s a better gift for your children than outdoor fun they’ll enjoy each and every day?

    Play a Round of Miniature Golf

    Whether you have toddlers or teenagers in the house, having a happy family means that you need to change up the activity from time to time. Instead of the usual weekend mall shopping or TV watching, why not round up everyone in the backyard for some miniature golf instead? You can cater it for any and all ages (from simple to challenging), give each family member a putter, and be as creative as you’d like with the setup! Add some personal touches that your family will love, such as using part of your son’s Thomas the Train tunnel to create an obstacle for the golf ball to go through. The more involved you get in the process of turning your backyard into miniature golf mania, the more engaged they’ll become!

    With such a busy schedule day after day, it’s easy to get bogged down with all the things you have to do. But what about what you want to do, such as getting your family together for some good, old fashioned fun? We’d love to hear what you and your family does for weekend fun!
