According to a report from the West Virginia Education Association, children spend an average nine hours per day on digital devices. That means less time outside playing as in the days before smartphones and social media. One way to encourage physical activity is by installing an indoor playground.
Why an Indoor Playground?
Winter is not far off, and some parents hesitate letting their children play outside where they’re prone to catching a cold. A pole barn or steel building provides a cozy environment for children to engage in physical play and exercise.
Another reason to build an indoor playground is safety. Some parents are hesitant to take their kids to a public playground. You never know if a child predator is lurking nearby. With an indoor setting, your children can play freely without needing to keep a close eye 24/7.
Finally, an indoor playground provides more playtime opportunity. This includes play in the evening, during extreme cold or hot weather, etc. They get more exercise and spend less time tweeting or taking selfies.
Ideas for an Indoor Playground
Your imagination is the limit with an indoor playground. We recommend covering the floor with rubber safety mats. From there, you can install the same equipment found in a conventional playground. This includes a swing set, teeter totters, monkey bars, and ball pits. You can also add a few additions that appeal to adults, such as vintage arcades and pinball machines.
Our pole barns include options for soffits, gable vents, and cupolas for providing adequate ventilation. This prevents the room from getting too stuffy as the little ones expend their energy.
