Visit a Different Playground Every Week {Summer Fun Guide}

One of my kids' favorite things to do is go to a playground to play. They will play, climb, swing, jump, and slide for hours. And if there is a sand pit, my youngest will become a filfthy mess and wonder out loud, "mommy, why don't we have a sand box." When it is time to leave, I usually need to strip her down to her undies before she gets into her car seat. At which point I say back to her, "this is why we don't have a sand box."

My girls have their favorite playground, but I like to mix things up and take them to a different one each week. Why? It prevents boredom...plain and simple. Each playground visit is a new experience with different kids to play with and different equipment to explore and I don't mind driving a few extra miles to try a new park. We pack snacks, water, and sunscreen and head out in the morning to beat the high afternoon heat.

Do you have a favorite park? Try a new this week...mix it up a little.

  1. Great idea. Our three year old loves playing at the park, and when there's a new one he hasn't seen it's all the more exciting.

  2. Great posting! Playground is the kids favorite and if the design of playground is unique then it makes kids to learn from it.
