House Slide

The House Slide is a favorite playground activity that attracts children to being active and playful in a thrilling way. The House Slide delights children and encourages them to be brave and enthusiastic on the playground, for hours of fun and active play. When children slide, they train their core muscles, sitting upright while sliding down. This stimulates their trunk stability, important for avoiding back and neck pains – a growing problem in children due to sedentary lifestyles. Sliding additionally trains the child's sense of balance and spatial understanding. These skills are important in navigating the world securely. They are the fundament of all motor skills and thus a fundament in physical confidence in the child. The house theme adds imagination to the climb and function as a story-telling prop, supporting language.
