? Promoting Balance
In order to go down the slide, children first have to climb up the ladder. Then, they have to sit steadily at a height in order to slide down smoothly without falling to either side. This strengthens a child’s balance to navigate around his/her surroundings.
? Increasing Strength and Flexibility
When children are younger, most of them are only able to climb up to smaller slides. But as time progresses, they become physically stronger and more flexible so as to climb up to larger ones. This strength and flexibility that they gain over time from playing on slides, prevent injuries and gives them more confidence in physical activities.
? Developing Social Skills
Playgrounds are a place that is full of kids. Hence, it is likely that your child will run into a couple of other children on every visit. Indeed, playgrounds are like social hubs for children that provide them with an opportunity to develop their social skills by interacting with other children. My children, for instance, have developed a lot of empathy, patience, and awareness for others. They would often wait for their turn, and would usually let someone else go first only for the sake of it.
? Increases Grip Strength
As students grab the ladder rungs and the sides of a slide while sliding down, their grip strength increases and their forearm muscles become more toned. As a result of this, they are able to hold doorknobs, pencils, and other tools with a good grip.
? Boosts Spatial Awareness
When my daughter was younger, she would almost always fall off the end of the slide on her back. Since the slide was fixed on top of a grassy ground, she would not get hurt. But as time progressed, she learned that she needs to put her feet on the ground right before landing. This way slides help toddlers with their spatial awareness.
? Increases Coordination
In order to climb up the ladder of the slides, children have to make use of their eyes, feet, hands, and legs altogether. This helps a lot in the development of body coordinatio
