Enjoy A Playground all Year Long, Part 3


Encourage kids to play outside with these 3 fun winter activities:

* Today’s article was written by Meagan Deacon... it was a bit long so I've split it into a few parts... today is part 1.   Megan invites our readers to check out ParknPool - the leading online supplier of commercial grade site amenities and furnishings such as picnic tables, park benches, trash receptacles, drinking fountains, bleachers and playgrounds. It is important to us that all kids and adults spend as much time in the outdoors as possible. For more information visit
Part 1 published September 17th

Wintertime is a magical season that's filled with beautiful snow, nights curled up by the fireplace and the warmth of the holiday season. Unfortunately, all that cold weather can also discourage children from playing outside and getting a healthy dose of daily exercise. Despite the snow and ice, there's still plenty of fun to be had in the great outdoors on playgrounds.

  • Build a Snow Fort: With a few shovels and a little imagination, children can easily transform a pile of snow next to playground equipment into an elaborate fortress complete with walls, windows, secret entrances and hidden pathways.

  • Snowball Fights: Having a snowball fight is another classic winter activity that kids are sure to love. Children can either have a free-for-all match or form up into teams. Just make sure the kids are playing safely and fairly with each other.

  • Create a Snowman: Your playground could become the site of a snowman (and snow woman!) village if you have the right supplies available. When it's all complete, children can play on the slides while the snowmen look on from the side.

 * Note from Lillian Brummet: get youth involved in volunteering and community work by going out as a family and shoveling sidewalks and driveways in your neighborhood, for needy or physically challenged people, or just to say thank you to someone special.
