Spring is in full swing, which means that it’s the perfect time for you and your kids to get outside and enjoy the sunshine and warmer weather. Unfortunately, with an increase in outdoor play comes an increase in the risk of injury for kids.
Skinned knees, scratches, falls, and even more serious injuries like broken bones seem to go hand-in-hand with playing outside. But, if you and your child take the necessary safety precautions before heading to the park or playground, many injuries can be avoided. Your child can enjoy hours of play out in the sunshine, and you don’t have to worry over outdoor dangers.
Accidents happen and kids will get an injury from time to time, but many bumps and bruises can be avoided if you know what to look for. Here’s a playground safety checklist by Superior Grounds For Play to help you conduct a quick playground inspection before your child runs off to play.
