A trip to an indoor playground like Kids Fun City isn’t just a fun day out for kid. Regular trips also help keep children happy and healthy – it can be a very beneficial activity for your children. How, you say? Read on to find out!
The American Heart Association recommends that children get at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity every day, a number which seems harder and harder to reach as video games and computers take up more and more of children’s play time. A trip to Kids Fun City gives them a great space to burn energy, even during the rain or snow or cold temperatures we experience in the winter. It helps them manage their weight, decrease their risk of high blood pressure later in life and generally helps promote an active lifestyle.
Studies have shown that children who engage in regular physical activity are not only healthier physically, but also healthier mentally. It helps keep them alert and ready to take on the day ahead. Play and games help them get creative, solve problems and act out scenarios in a safe and educating environment.
One of the biggest benefits of an indoor playground is the opportunity to engage with other children. So many modern forms of entertainment have children sitting alone in front of a screen. That’s not to say there’s no place in life for video games or television, but getting out and interacting with other people is important, too! We provide a welcoming and accepting environment here at Kids Fun City, where kids can run, jump and play with a wide variety of children their own age. It helps them make connections with other people and improve their social skills, which are very important to young children’s development.
