You don’t need a garden or gym membership to get the kids moving. A balance beam or a simple set of juggling toys are fun ways to challenge their skills and fitness.
Sit still? That’s no fun
Convention says we should sit on sofas but given the choice, which would your kids go for? Why not put their wriggly energy to good use and give them a swing seat.
Good for building core body strength (without even realising it), make sure you follow the safety instructions when fixing one to your ceiling. A crash mat underneath, like the ones you find in the gym, will give them a soft landing.
The benefits of play
Play isn’t just about having fun, it’s also an important way for kids to develop their motor skills, sense of balance, social skills like cooperation and teamwork – even their self esteem. Learn all about the benefits of play in this video.
Relax, the place looks great!
If the kids’ playroom is also the living room, it’s a good idea to give them somewhere to keep their stuff, that way it’s out of sight when they’re not using it. This storage bench doubles as a seat, providing a place to lounge, read and play.
Don’t forget to make space for your things, too. We split the space in this storage unit – the kids get the lower shelves so they can easily get their stuff, while all the grown-up things are safely out of reach above. And it’s not just good for tidying up, a cupboard can become a plaything, like this one turned into an improvised dollhouse.
