0

With all of the energy that children are bursting with, it is always best for them to be playing outside when the weather is positive enough. When playing outside, young children will often look to apparatus such as wooden swing sets as an outlet to enjoy themselves in the sunshine. A wooden swing offers various benefits in terms of use and aesthetics that make them the perfect item to have in your back garden. But what exactly are the benefits of having wooden swing sets?

Their Durability

You will find that many swing sets tend to be made of either hardened plastic or real wood. Wood will tend to be the best option in terms of the material used, mainly due to the extra safety precautions it provides. With a wooden swing, you will find that it will tend to last longer than other materials used to manufacture them, and you will also find it to be much more durable. The strength and durability provided by wooden swing sets means that it will definitely be able to hold the weight of your child, meaning there is less chance of breakage and your child being injured.

Chance to Exercise

The obvious main factor of wooden swing sets is that it provides children with the chance to exercise. The key motion of kicking your legs out to gain more and more height whilst swinging enables your children to develop their muscle strength in their legs, also developing their core strength by staying balanced on their swing. These physical health benefits can be achieved all whilst your child allow their imagination to run away with them as they soar into the sky!

Assists in Mental Growth

Wooden swing sets also assist in the improvement of sensory processing abilities. Sensory abilities relate to the awareness of your senses, such as spatial awareness, meaning the alertness of appropriate space in a given situation. When on a wooden swing, spatial awareness is of course important for your children in that it helps in alerting them of if their movements on a swing could potentially cause harm to other children. An example of this is if your child’s momentum from swinging energetically could potentially hurt another child passing by too closely.  Swinging, in this sense, helps your children to learn to interpret spatial information.

More Natural Appearance

For when a swing set is in your back garden, you may prefer for it to blend into its surroundings. If your swing set is made of colourful plastic, it will stick out like a sore thumb in most cases. However, if you incorporate a wooden swing into your back garden, you are ensuring that you have a swing set that is more likely to blend into your garden naturally. This allows your back garden to inhabit an enjoyable outdoor toy for your children whilst also being aesthetically pleasing.
