Recent research published by Habyts revealed that 75% of kids spend less than 60 minutes playing outdoors each day. Unfortunately, this figure is far off of the three hours daily that many experts recommend. Outdoor play is crucial for children due to its many benefits, including exposure to sunlight, physical exercise, use of imagination, and socialization. Therefore, as parents, it is more important than ever before to look for new and innovative ways for your child to spend time outdoors. One of those ways is by building or purchasing a playhouse for your outdoor space.
If you’re looking to make your backyard as fun as possible, you can now take the average playhouse to new heights. Explore three ways that you can create the perfect dream playhouse for your children.
Log cabin playhouses
Do you and your children love being in nature? Nothing compares to spending time on a lake, breathing in the fresh air, and settling in by a cozy fireplace. No matter where you live, you can recreate the look of beautiful log cabin homes in your own backyard. While there are many log cabin playhouse kits, this is a style that is easy to build from scratch for a fraction of the cost. This is also a style of playhouse that is easy to customize to your child’s preferences and style. You can make the playhouse as minimalistic or as luxurious as you would like. Minimalist log cabin playhouses are generally small, with only a few toys or features on the inside. On the more lavish side, you can add fun details such as a pretend fireplace, mini furniture, decorative pillows and blankets, and a play kitchen.
One of the latest trends in playhouses are smart playhouses. What are smart playhouses? These modern and innovative mini homes are made to mimic the design and features of full-sized smart homes. Although this idea may sound costly (and it can absolutely get expensive if desired), the pre-built models can be re-created inexpensively. Pre-built versions of this concept are about $5,000, and include many exciting features. Interior low voltage lighting, modern dollhouses, high-end carpeted floors, modular tables and chairs, guidelines for curtains, and grass cover can all be added to most smart playhouses.
Does your son or daughter love certain books or movies? Playhouses can now be ordered or designed to look like castles, gingerbread homes, or even like a pirate ship. If a themed playhouse sounds like the right fit for your children, you have several ways to make their dreams come to life. First, you can search online to see if there is a pre-built playhouse in the theme that your child would most enjoy. Alternatively, you can help make the theme come to life by building and designing a custom playhouse. You can even turn a simple playhouse exterior into a themed playhouse by adding custom decorations, paint, and accessories.
Need new and thrilling ways to keep your children excited about playing outside? A fun new playhouse could be the perfect answer. From rustic log cabins to themed styles, there are playhouse designs for virtually all preferences, ages, and budgets.
