The Perfect Playground

Where we live, we are lucky to be within walking distance of several playgrounds. Each playground is very different and offers equipment aimed at different ages. A few weeks ago we stumbled across the perfect playground for Monkey. The only swings available are baby swings, it has a mini round about you sit in, rather than stand on and the slide and climbing frame are the perfect size for him to climb.

He loves the independence he gains as soon as he enters the playground. He can run off and climb up onto the slide all on his own, only requiring us to take his hands as he whizzes down. It’s great to see him explore and decide where he goes next. Switches and toggles he used to ignore, have suddenly become part of his play, it seems his imagination is increasing.

M will sit and drive the little plane and even sit down next to another child already driving. I love to wonder what is going through his mind. I love watching him play and can’t wait until we move to the next perfect playground.

    We have similar options at our local park & its been amazing watching him grow & move between the different stages of equipment. Your little man is sure growing fast!

    That looks a fun one. We have a few different ones about that all offer different things Mads likes. I wish we could combine them all into one immense playground. 😉

    That looks so colourful and bright and at a low lever for little ones. I imagine you all feel very safe in there to let Monley explore the equipment. Thank you for sharing on Country Kids.
