Ever wanted to turn your backyard into a playground?! We are fortunate in Perth to have so many amazing playgrounds in our local neighbourhood and beyond, but what about those days when you just want to stay home and play. Well here are some ideas to turn your backyard into a play heaven for you and your little ones, so you can enjoy a days play in the comfort of your own home.
1. Ninja Obstacle Course
Bring out the ninja in your child with a ninja obstacle course in your backyard. Choose from a basic set of monkey bars right up to a full course with cargo ladders, rings, fist holders and loads of other ninja accessories.
2. Inflatable Waterslides
Nothing keeps kids entertained like water play. Turn your backyard into a water park with an inflatable slide playground. Warinng! You may find your backyard is filled with uninvited neighbours looking for somewhere fun to cool off!
3. Swing Sets
A playground is not a playground without swings. Include a swing set in your backyard set up, options include traditional swings, basket swings and toddler swing styles..
The trampoline is a timeless icon of backyard play and still is and always has been the source of hours and days of backyard fun for kids.
5. Sports Equipment
Bring their favourite sports into the backyard with a basketball ring, baseball or cricket net or hockey, football or soccer goals.
6. Ride On Toys
There nothing like the freedom of having your own wheels. Fill the backyard with a range or ride on toys and watch the kids zoom their way around the yard.
7. Sand & Water Play Tables
Messy play is another play feature we can find in many of Perth’s playgrounds. Sand and water play tables offer hours of fun in the backyard and are a great way to keep cool when it’s a little warm outside too. They are a an affordable and practical play option for small backyards too.
8. PIcnic Table
Taking time out for a snack or lunch is part of the playground experience, so bring a piece of this into your backyard with a picnic table, just like the ones at the playground.
