Many people do not know the exact age to get their children their first swing set. We think you should start at a young age which is why we are going to lay out the great benefits a swing set for toddler’s has! From being outdoor’s instead of inside, benefits to their body and muscles, and more!

 

Why Being Outdoor’s Is Crucial

Keeping your toddler outside is very beneficial, from breathing fresh air to being introduced to knew things by seeing or touching them! Their are many studies that show the importance but we wanted to highlight one that we love! A recent study from Tovah P. Klein¬†describes that toddlers are sensory learners and do-er’s. Describing that when they are outside they touching, seeing, tasting and more just taking all the outdoors in and learning what everything is! Feeling their bodies move in different way’s by running, skipping, climbing, and crawling, developing their bodies and muscles.

She goes on to describe the in house relationship and attitude changes that may occur, such as changes in their mood. She explain’s that being outside give your children the sense of freedom to go off on their own in the backyard and have a sense of freedom of their own! Getting their attitude under control as getting them outside gives them the opportunity to scream, yell, throw things and being all out messy eliminating the problems indoors! Highlighting that having a swing set for toddlers is a great way to achieve these benefits for you and your children!

 

Developing Their Mind’s and Body

We all know that children especially toddlers have extreme amounts of energy! They should have a place to expand that energy but in a beneficial way. Having a backyard swing set that allows them to climb, hang, swing, and more develops their muscles! Simple elements such as rock wall, they think will be fun and exciting but in reality it is helping develop their muscles. When they have to grab the rock’s their are increasing and testing their grip strength, as they climb up and down they are increasing their leg strength and increasing their motor skills with hand eye contact placing their hands and feet right at the exact spot to achieve climbing up and down!

For younger toddler’s having a ramp for them to walk up and down in even beneficial! Having to adjust their balance and weight increasing there motor skills and muscles to walk up and down, but don’t forget to add railing instead of rope for the upmost safety for your children!

 

When searching for a swing set for toddler’s remember that they can grow into the swing set as well! A swing set is a investment so why should they only get use out of it for 1-2 year’s. Include elements that will grow with them such as big slides, swings, rock walls, rope walls, monkey bar’s and more!
