They need variety!

They need the freedom to take more risks!

We need to worry less about safety and more about how we can challenge them!

Disclaimer: Despite photos that seem to show otherwise, no children were injured while playing in inclement weather on a deserted, CPSC-approved public playground.


Kids: DO try this at home. May result in muddy pants, giddy smiles, and laughter.
