From time immemorial, people have been discussing the benefits of play. In course of time, the focus moved from attempts to describe the benefits of play to the links between children’s play and their physical and mental development and academics.
Often referred to as the UNCRC, United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child underscores the fundamental privileges of every child (defined as being 18 years or under), Article 31 of the UNCRC formally enshrines the child’s right to play and the right to engage in other recreational activities.
Playgrounds are the most important provider of physical activity for children. Playground includes private and public parks, play equipment and amenities in schools, indoor play areas, indoor playgrounds and soft play areas in shopping malls, toddler play areas in airports and hospitals etc. People commonly use park and recreation services in ways that involve physical activity and contribute to their physical health. The recent innovations in the playground, mainly indoor playgrounds are truly amazing. What makes it more popular is that an indoor playground can be developed in any indoor space and creative enough to entertain kids for many hours.
Now a day, parents take their kids to the playground for fun. But imagine a world in which play areas are practically everywhere, even on a walk to the market it could be very interesting, kids can entertain themselves, develop their imagination and make friends with other kids. Nothing can really compare to the fun they possibly have while engaging in the playground.
However, if there is extreme weather or one isn’t fortunate enough to live near a playground or park, having a small private indoor playground at home packed with soft toys and play equipment is a great way for kids to enjoy play and obviously parents can engage with their young one, or encourage them to bond with their siblings.
