Playgrounds can be a load of fun! (Especially if you're full of energy, like your child/ren. If you're like me...playgrounds
can be tiring torture zones that your husband drags you to in order to laugh at you while you violently swat at bugs while running and squealing are great places to take your kids to get some well-needed exercise.
But if you DO like fun outdoorsy activities with the kids, playgrounds are great.
There are swings, jungle gyms, obstacle courses, basketball hoops, slides, and more! Playgrounds are fun for kids of every age, from the smallest babies...who enjoy fresh air and seeing/touching grass to older kids who can play you in a friendly game of basketball! Winner treats everyone to an ice cream after the game! Just make sure that you have a plan BEFORE you get to the playground. If you have two little ones, make sure that you can keep a watchful eye on both of them for stranger-danger safety and to also make sure they don't decide to "fly" from the top of a 20 foot jungle gym! See if there's a playground near you!
