As we all know,the playground is the most attractive for the children.When you’re a kid, it’s hard to think of an everyday activity more exciting than going to the playground. As soon as your parents let go of your hand you’d be off like a shot, grabbing the best swing for yourself or trying to scramble up the slide instead of down.


But playground equipment has benefits beyond simply being fun,it’s not just for fun.Kids love to go outdoor modular playground with their slides.The reason as follows.


The article contains following:

1,Why the kids love the slides more than others

2,What is the charm of the slides?

3,How to play the slides correctly and safely.

 

1,Why the kids love the slides more than others

Ask any child what piece of playground equipment they enjoy the most, and we guarantee you that the majority of answers will be a fast moving slide. Most children are naturally thrill seekers and fearless when it comes to exploring their surrounding environments, as this is how much of their learning process works.  With that said, in a world that is surrounded in safety guidelines and monitored behaviors, the slide is one of few places a child can freely experience a high level of adrenalin and joy without worrying about a potential injury or significant injury anyways.


2,What is the charm of the slides?

Slides are encouraging to kids and invigorating to play on. As such children will climb almost anything if it means going down a slide. Often they simply continue this pattern of up and down the slide over and over again because of its immediate excitement. This ongoing behavior teaches children about balance, coordination, and spatial awareness, while they make their way to the top of the slide.

The slide also teaches children social skills and organization. Children immediately learn how to wait their turn, remaining patient while those ahead of them slide down first.

Slides inspire confidence and exploration. While the sliding motion is thrill-seeking and fun, it also requires the courage to climb to the top of the slide structure to make the initial rapid movement down the slide, which may take some getting used to and confidence to do so. It’s an incredible accomplishment for children when they face that scary task of a tall slide and make it down to the bottom with a smile.

Slides provide a perfect motivator for physical activity; to go down that slide you must first put in the effort to climb it!


3,How to play the slides correctly and safely

(1)First of all you must teache kids about playground safety.

Another key part of playground safety: Kids must know how to be safe and act responsibly at the playground.

Kids should know to:

 

Never push or roughhouse while on jungle gyms, slides, seesaws, swings, and other equipment.

Use equipment properly — slide feet-first, don't climb outside guardrails, no standing on swings, etc.

Always check to make sure no other kids are in the way if they're going to jump off equipment or slide, and land on both feet with their knees slightly bent.

Leave bikes, backpacks, and bags away from the equipment and the play area so that no one trips over them.

Always wear a helmet while bike riding, but take it off while on playground equipment.

Never use playground equipment that's wet because moisture makes the surfaces slippery.

Check playground equipment in the summertime. It can become uncomfortably or even dangerously hot, especially metal slides, handrails, and steps. So use good judgment — if the equipment feels hot to the touch, it's probably not safe or fun to play on. Contact burns can happen within seconds.

Wear clothes without drawstrings or cords. Drawstrings, purses, and necklaces could get caught on equipment and accidentally strangle a child.

Wear sunscreen when playing outside even on cloudy days to protect against sunburn.

(2)The second is safe equipment guidelines

Swings, slides, and climbing equipment have different safety concerns. And some kinds of equipment are not safe for playgrounds, no matter how careful kids are.

 

Swing Safety

Swings are the most common source of childhood injuries from moving equipment on a playground. But a few simple precautions can help keep kids safely swinging:

 

Seesaw Safety

Using a seesaw requires cooperation between kids. They're generally not recommended for preschoolers unless the seesaw has a spring-centering device to prevent sudden contact with the ground. Regardless of design, both seesaws and merry-go-rounds should be approached with caution.

 

Slide Safety

Slides are safe if kids are careful when using them. Guidelines to keep in mind:

Children should take one step at a time and hold onto the handrail when climbing the ladder to the top of the slide. They should not climb up the sliding board itself to get to the top.

Kids should always slide down feet first and sitting up, never head first or on their back or stomach.

Only one child should be on the slide platform at a time, and kids shouldn't slide down in groups.

Kids should always check that the bottom of the slide is clear before sliding down. When they reach the bottom, they should get off and move away from the end of the slide so it's clear for other kids to slide down.

 

(3)Climbing Equipment Safety

Climbing equipment comes in many shapes and sizes — including rock climbing walls, arches, and vertical and horizontal ladders. It's usually more challenging for kids than other kinds of playground equipment.

 

Be sure your kids are aware of a safe way down in case they can't complete the climb. The highest rate of injuries on public playgrounds are seen with climbing equipment. This is dangerous when not designed or used properly. Adult supervision is especially important for younger kids.

 

Climbing equipment can be used safely if kids are taught to use both hands and to stay well behind the person in front of them and beware of swinging feet. When they drop from the bars, kids should be able to jump down without hitting the equipment on the way down. Remind kids to have their knees bent and land on both feet. We also provide Outdoor Non-Standarder, Trampoline Park.
