An Outdoor Firehouse
For those kids who dream of being firefighters, now they can have a place that encourages their imagination. Outdoor playtime spent rescuing the neighborhood cat or riding around on a kid-size fire truck looking for adventure will afford a lifetime of memories. Photo courtesy of Lilliput Play Homes
Tables for Kids
Make sure you provide plenty of seating and table space for your little one. Outdoor dining tables can do double duty as game tables on a porch or patio. Photo courtesy of KidKraft
Materials for Outdoor Play
When picking your outdoor playground, pay attention to the materials. Cedar Works uses splinter-free, chemical-free and maintenance-free Northern White Cedar wood for a kid-friendly outdoor design.
Exploration in the Backyard
Encourage your child's curiosity. Colorful plants or an organic veggie garden planted next to a child's play structure gives little ones a chance to learn about nature. Photo courtesy of Lilliput Play Homes
If you want your kids to participate in the fun of helping with the construction of their outdoor space, consider do-it-yourself options. KidKraft offers easy-to-assemble playhouses that are made with weather-resistant wood.
