Safety Rules For Playing On Slide

There is nothing as entertaining for children including their parents than flying down a slide. Regardless of their ages, sliding is one of their favorite activities when playing on a swing set. You will find an assortment of models and sizes available either for replacement or additions to existing structures. They are available in different sizes, colors and easily install if you need a replacement. Children love outdoor activities that include playing on swing sets and this piece of writing will be the focal point on slides along with a few reminders about safe play.

If you have an existing playset and need a replacement they are readily available. The most important thing you will need to know is the height of the play deck that it attached to. Most are 4 feet, 5 feet, 6’ or 7’ in height from the ground up. Knowing this measurement in advance will prevent you buying one that is to short or too long. Look for features like wide handrails and manufactured with fade resistant polyethylene. Most manufacturers offer a warranty against cracking or breaking and some even have a lifetime guarantee.

Make sure you never install over a hard surface such as concrete, gravel, or asphalt so that you do not cause injury to a fall. Level ground is important and away from things like a fence, tree, garage, wires, etc. Ground cover and protective surfacing should be at least 6 feet out and around the play area. Without a doubt you should consider a plastic made slide as metal often becomes extremely hot to the touch. These guidelines will be outlined in the instruction manual so please read and make sure you adhere to the advice of the manufacturer.

Here are some common rules to educate your kids:

1. Always so down with their feet first and never go down head first.
2. By no means push or roughhouse while climbing up the ladder or sliding down.
3. Explain why using the equipment properly is so important to their safety.
4. Never stand on the slide.
5. Never climb up the slide or hang from the side guardrails.
6. If the slide is wet do use it because the surface area will be slippery.
7. Cool to the touch is the rule, and if it feels hot it is not safe to play on.
8. Do not wear clothing that has a drawstring such as a hoodie or sweatshirt or other loose items such as scarf’s or necklaces. Avoid this type of clothing to prevent strangulation hazards.
You will be amazed by the collections of styles that are for sale today. They range in size, design and color. New polyethylene allows for better construction making them last longer. You’ll find styles like wave, scoop, and straight designs as well as turbo and  radical styles. You’ll also find the sidewinder models and the one the kids most often want is the tube slide. If the intended use is as a replacement or added to new construction you will locate them easily by shopping at Best Price Toys.

For Kids Who Love To Play Outdoors

A KidWise Playsystem swing set will undoubtedly provide a wonderful place for your children to play. What child doesn’t like to have a place to climb, swing, have picnics, and play in a sandbox? What parent wouldn’t smile at the sheer joy and laughter that a playcenter will bring?

However, fun and laughter is just the tip of the iceberg. There are many other benefits to having a wooden swing set in your backyard. That’s why we’ve invested our lives in making Congo swing sets for children all across the North America to enjoy. Not only is it an investment in your child, we view it as an investment in families as well.

Physical development: When climbing a rope or learning to “pump” their own swing, your child will be building strength, coordination and agility. You will marvel over the course of a single summer as you mark their development and growth. Watch over time, as they go from standing on your shoulders trying to do the monkey bars to flying across all by themselves!

Social development: Side-by-side is the key to teaching children how to share, take turns and collaborate. Not only fun, play is the way children can experience success, try on different roles, practice being in charge of their own activities and interact with others. Sharing a swing for example, helps a child learn patience and to be considerate of others’ feelings.

Cognitive development: When your child plays in a sandbox, they not only learn to exercise their imagination, but they also learn the concepts of size, shape, volume, empty and full. Climbing up and going down the slide is the perfect lesson in gravity. Play is your child’s work, teaching them in ways you might never have thought about.

Togetherness: Having a wooden swing set right in your backyard will lead to magic moments when you least expect it. You’ll watch in amazement as your child learns a new skill or asks you to join them at an imaginary tea party. Most importantly, a KidWise Congo swing set will provide the opportunity for your child to build lasting friendships, and for you to play with your children and other families and their children right in your own yard.

Independent learning: When a group of children have decided that their “game” involves swinging across the monkey bars, climbing up a ladder and then sliding down a slide, they have established a clear objective: To follow in sequence a set of prescribed activities. They are exercising their thinking, social, verbal and physical skills, as well as their creativity within the meaningful context of inventing a game — all without being taught by an adult. (From Dimensions of Early Childhood, article by Kathryn Castle and Elaine Wilson)

Safety: Your children will play in your backyard, not at a park up the street where you can’t see or protect them. Friends will congregate. You’ll know with whom your children are playing. You’ll observe how they get along with others. And you can supervise them while, at the same time, giving them the opportunity to play on their own, learning independence in a protected environment and having a great time.
Longevity: From pushing your child in the toddler swing, to watching him or her swap stories in the playhouse with friends – a wooden swing set will engage them for years. These playsets are designed to grow with your children as they grow and their skills improve. It’s not like the “hot” toy that sits gathering dust a few weeks after your child receives it. A wood play set will be used season after season after season. You’ll wonder why you didn’t get one sooner.

The newest model in our family of playgrounds, the Congo Swing’n Monkey
is perfect for cozy yards.

Challenged to create a smaller version of our classic swing sets, we set out to build the strongest, most compact set on the market. By designing a high-quality, maintenance free with superior strength lumber, this compact model is as strong as every swing set Kidwise makes.

The wonder wave slide and the belt swings are the great recipe for fun all day long. The Congo is a great alternative to a metal swing set – proof that good things do come in small packages!

Our signature Monkey Playsystem 4 is sure to be the congregating place for all. Beautiful and painstakingly well thought out, the Monkey 4 provides room for adventure and imagination.

Enjoying Play Time Outdoors

Do kids really have a great time when playing outside? Is having a great time playing in the open air really as simple as stepping outside? Absolutely, without a doubt, walk out that door and you will see kids who love the playing outside. It is good for their bodies and good for their brains, just make sure they have plenty of toys to play with in the backyard to entertain them.

Let the fun start, the second they head outside. Kids ages 3 an up can enjoy a wide array of outside toys just make sure they are age appropriate for them and that they enjoy constant supervision from mom, dad, or caregivers. This writing will offer suggestions for backyard fun that children really enjoy and that offer entertainment value for the family.

Of course the first thing that comes to mind is a backyard swing set or a swimming pool. These are major investments and provide entertainment for the whole family. This fun environment in your own backyard is loads of fun provided you have the space and the budget for installation. When thinking about buying a playground or pool for the family’s use you will need to create a budget and a list of options you want. Planning ahead of time is the key to buying on sale for a good price. Even if you have to wait 6 months or a year before you buy early planning is essential. While many can’t afford elaborate swing sets or in-ground pools many can purchase small versions of products that are similar.

For example, instead of a built in swimming pool you can consider an inflatable bounce house with a water park attached. Lots of fun just like pools at a fraction of the cost. Most of the water parks have at least one slide and a wading pool. It is easy to keep cool while playing on an inflatable water park. Children love to splash around and the small molded plastic pools are very affordable. They fill with water quickly, because they are small and when you are through simply flip them over and let the pool air dry and store.

Swing sets have a wide price range and if your budget is restricted take into consideration a metal swing set. They typically are a fraction of the cost of a large wooden swing. If you have a big tree in the garden suspending a swing from a large branch might work. Tree swings are very entertaining without the expense of a swing set. If you have a deck in the backyard a new trend is attaching a slide off the deck for the kids to use. If you do this, make sure you have protective ground cover such as rubber mulch around all sides of the slide. Make sure the landing area is not on a hard surface like cement or brick pavers.

If you want big toys for the backyard you have to make sure you have the room for them. Pre-determining the spot for set up is necessary and will make the installation easier. This is especially true if you need to remove trees, overhead wires and other obstacles prior to assemble.

Enjoy the outdoors and nature with your family and spend quality time with them. After all, isn’t that what we all strive for? More playtime for everyone!

Baby Swing Safety Tips to Remember

Recall notifications are serious concerns when buying a used product. If you are considering a purchase of a used item be certain to research the style. Make sure you have the model number, know the brand name and year it was produced. Contact the manufacturer to find out if there were any recalls or safety issues with the model. A quick online search should provide you there phone number. Also, you can visit the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website for further information. Additional, when purchasing used items you will need a copy of the assembly manual because it offers directions for correct installation and provides safety information with regards to weight limits and settings. A through inspection of the product must be completed. Take a look at the safety harness or belts to make sure they are not frayed and that the connections work properly. Look for cracks and rough edges that might pose a hazard. Check the overall condition and if you have any reservations then pass of the purchase. If the indoor swing comes with a frame check for rust, loose hardware, and that the unit is operational in working order. If the unit has an adjustable speed setting make sure you try all settings.

Which type of seat belts are best to use? That depends on the type of baby swing you are deciding between. For example, if the swing is for a wooden swing set or metal unit look for a full bucket swing which completely envelopes the child. This type of swing is used when babies can hold their heads up. A high back infant swing is usually used when they are little because most of the models come with a security strap and a t-bar connection that is locked into place. If you are considering an indoor swing be sure to look for styles that are equipped with a five-point safety harness as this offers the security and piece of mind for caregivers along with mom and dad. Using only a seat belt by itself is not enough protection or safety for the baby.

infant swings

Green Infant Swing

Infant high back outdoor swing is usually best suited for those under one years of age. After they can hold their heads up you will need to graduate them to a full bucket style. The buckets can accommodate baby’s that have outgrown the high back styles and toddlers up to approximately 3 years old. Half bucket is recommended at around 3 years of age and up. Pay close attention to the child developmental stages as they may outgrow earlier and you will need to discontinue using the product.

Following the manufacturers recommended guidelines for weight and age must be adhered to at all times for indoor and outdoor use. Never leave a child unattended in a swing. This is one of the most important safety issues that must be followed. Remember that constant supervision is the key to their safety and never let a baby, infant, or young child swing by themselves.

Rocking Horses And Rocking Chairs For Baby Shower Gifts

Accepting an invitation to a baby shower is very special request for the parents who the shower is intended for. This occasion is an extraordinary celebration with close friends and family who want to share in their joy and offer a gift. Baby showers have been a proud traditional for a very long time and they are planned well in advance of the babies arrival. Finding the perfect gift will be easier than you think because there are so many choices and options worth your consideration.

Chances are the mom-to-be has registered for all your baby’s essentials products including strollers, car seats, gear and more at a local department store. A mother-to-be often has a gift registry where she has selected several items that are on her/his wish list. Gift registry often will advise the color scheme of the nursery and if you view the entire list you can judge their likes and dislikes. Gift registry is a great concept and help with eliminating duplicate presents which result in returns and exchanges. As the gift giver, you never want your present returned because you want to see the item used or played with.

What if you are an out-of-town guests and don’t have access to the store where she is registered or simply want to present a truly unique gift to the expectant parents. Often, before the shower takes place the gender of the baby is well publicized giving you the opportunity of a better gift selection.

Deciding on a baby shower gift is a personal choice and while it is nice to purchase from the wish list it is also well-received to have a distinctive gift that is out of the ordinary. Choosing a baby shower gift is easy for most and finding one that will become an heirloom gift and one that can be passed down from one generation to the next is simply a fantastic idea! Think about products that will last and take time to search for baby shower gifts of heirloom value. While they might cost more than a traditional gift therefore think about asking other family members to consider purchasing the gift together.

Heirloom gifts can include wooden rocking horses especially if it is handcrafted by someone in the family or a close friend; adding the child’s name on the horse with hand engraved right into the wood and it will be heirloom treasure toy to keep forever. Personalize a child’s rocking chair with the baby’s name either before or after the baby is born. The rocking chair will be a great accent piece for the nursery décor until the child is old enough to start rocking. Until that point, old enough to rock, the rocking chair ought to be shared by a buddy in the nursery who just might be a huge teddy bear or giant stuffed animal.

Handcrafted items are easily found at craft shows or specialty boutiques. Other traditional heirloom gifts include the silver cup, silver baby rattle, silver piggy bank or babies comb and brush sets. Baby keepsakes are always beautifully made and treasured forever. Hand-made baby blankets and quilts have been a favorite gift for generations since you know the supplier has devoted hours and hours of their time making the gift just for your baby.

Personalize and monogrammed gifts have gained popularity over the years and for good reason, they are always well-received and appreciated. Personalization makes a gift truly unique in its own right. Since many expectant moms will not have a baby name decided on nor do they wish to know the gender the personalized present can be completed at a later date which is perfect if you want to include the baby’s birth date.

Before you start shopping gather information about the mother-to-be, check the registry and research online. The internet offers a wealth of information, articles and shops that cater to special occasions and baby gifts.

Why A Child Size Desk Is Important

Most experts in the education field will tell you one of the easiest ways to keep kids focused on their school work is to create a designed space for studying in the home. This study corner is one of the most significant ways of encouraging your child’s concentration when completing their assigned homework. Having a special place set aside for writing, reading, and studying is important. By creating a dedicated “learning area” with a desk and chair in your home, the child will enjoy their school work more. Bulletin boards next to the desk is another great way to teach organization as they can post reminder notes, or even graded school work that they are proud of.

Guidecraft Art Table & Chair Set

Art Table and Chair

You want to limit the interruptions, when a child has their own desk they don’t have to share the kitchen table with other siblings or mom and dad. When kids have to share the work space that is when the interruptions and distractions happen. For example, they are working on a project at the kitchen table and all of a sudden, it’s time for dinner. Then, they have to clear everything away, disrupting their concentration and flow of work. If the shared work space is with another sibling, they may get on each other nerves or distract one another.

A child’s desk lets you minimize the interruptions and distractions. For example, placing the child’s desk in an area of the home where the TV can not be heard is very important. If space is problem, just make sure the TV is off and this will help.

When kids have their own desk or study counter, you can effortlessly keep an eye on whether or not they take care of their stuff. Yes, you want teach tidiness and accountability. Were school supplies put away, such as pens, pencils, and crayon? Did they put away papers, stickers, and glue? Is everything in its home and neatly stored where it belongs. Are papers neatly stored in a folder? This is a hard task it the space is being shared with someone else. Is all of the homework completed, placed in the backpack and ready for the next school day? This is one goal that is easily accomplished when they have their own spot. When a child takes ownership they tend to be more responsible and just as important, take pride in whatever task they have finished.

In wrapping up, a child desk is a main piece of furniture for the individual growth of a child. The study routine, learned while they are young, will without a doubt benefit their educational and professional development later in life. Truth is, child desks will not promise a 4.0 grade point average (GPS) or even straight ‘A’, but it is a fantastic place to begin.
