Outdoor Playhouse / May 19, 2018 / Lundy Racine
Youve decided that you want to buy a wooden playhouse for your children. You know that this is something that will encourage them to expand their imaginations. They could find themselves pretending they are in the middle of the woods in their log cabin getting ready to go fishing or in a pretty cottage getting ready to have their friends over for a tea party. Your children are going to spend countless hours enjoying their playhouse. What Are the Benefits? The answer is that there are many. A wooden playhouse is going to be an attractive feature to add to your backyard.
Needless to say your youngsters will have their unique concepts of just what their own ideal outdoor playhouse would be and you have to take these under consideration. However dont worry a lot if the playhouse is going to be used by both boys and girls as even though you can find a exclusively designed for young girls playhouse they normally delight in climbing around inside a traditional wooden playhouse equally as much as the boys. A further thing to consider which will worry you a lot more than your kids is the basic safety aspects of the actual playhouse. Quite a few can have a couple of storeys plus a roof which can be climbed upon so you should make sure that there will not be a hazard of your child falling from a height. Any kind of playhouses bought from a respectable retailer really should have been constructed to rigid safety guidelines. If backyard childrens playhouses will not be a possibility maybe there will not be the space; then you may even consider indoor playhouses or even indoor playsets to help keep your children entertained.
Take height measurements of your children. According to the growth charts put out by the Center for Disease Control the average (50 percentile) height of both males and females for a 5 year old is about 43 inches 50 inches tall for an 8 year old and almost 60 inches for a 12 year old. Take into consideration whether you want the playhouse to be used only when your children are pre-Kindergarten or if the playhouse will be used beyond elementary school. Deciding this in advance will help you choose the size of the playhouse. One youve decided upon the size of the playhouse get some rope and stakes and begin to lay out where the playhouse will be.
