Designing a playground: key points

Proper design of the children's play complex will make it not only more interesting, but also safer. Here are some useful tips to help you in this matter:

  1. Soften sharp corners - if there is no way to do without them, then apply a protective rubber coating or the like. material.
  2. Apply bright colors - to make the kids and think forget about the TV and games on the smartphone, make the playground as bright and cozy as possible.
  3. Create different areas - instead of organizing a children's complex as one large site, try to equip several different departments. For example, swings and sandboxes can be in one place, a playground for sports games - just a little further away, and between them - tents or children's lodges.
  4. Use old things as accessories - children like fun garden decorations, for example, old rubber boots, umbrellas, dishes, toys etc. All this will make the process of researching the playground much more exciting.
  5. Take care of the place for storing toys - things that children play on the street should be kept separately, so as not to bring all the dirt into the house. A good idea for their storage is the internal cavity of the garden bench or shelves in the children's lodge.
