A PLAYFUL PARADISE With cooler days thankfully upon us, it’s the perfect time to get the kids out of the air-conditioned sitting rooms and into the sunshine — and one of the easiest ways to lure them outside is to create an exciting play space in the backyard that will inspire them to get active. Whatever the size of your garden, roof terrace or balcony, there’s play equipment which will encourage imagination and creativity outdoors. Consider a playhouse, a sandpit, a simple swing set and a proper shade shelter if the area gets the full glare of the sun. Most of all, make sure playsets are installed where you can keep a watchful eye on your children.
