Hey! Want To Know How To Get Your Kids Off The Couch And Into The Garden?

By Sara Felice

Is it just me, or do kids these days not seem to do anything but sit around watching TV and playing computer games? Now don't get me wrong, I'm not saying we should go back to the Dark Ages, but a bit of exercise wouldn't hurt, in fact it would actually be good for them.

I know you're probably getting a bit fed up of everyone telling you that your kids should be playing actively out in the fresh air and having fun and socialising with friends, rather than spending their lives cooped up indoors, but it's a very serious issue and there's just no escaping it. As a nation, our children are becoming more overweight and unhealthy and we need to do something about it, and fast.

OK, so you worry about the kids when they're out of the house, what parent wouldn't? But you can easily keep them close by and let them play safely outside in your own garden.

Easier said than done, I know, trying to prise them away from their beloved TV or computer screens and into the great outdoors - you just need to find that something that will encourage them.

Now I'm no expert, but the perfect solution to your problems could well be to create a fun and challenging playground in your own garden. It's amazing what a difference a climbing frame and a couple of swings can make, and there are so many different climbing frames and play activities to choose from. Kids will enjoy playing out in the garden, giving them the encouragement and persuasion to lead a more active and healthier lifestyle without them even realising it.

I know you're probably thinking that this might be a costly solution, but that's not necessarily the case, and it's one that's well worth considering. It's possible to buy a good quality, long lasting and safe swing set from as little as "156.

There are so many great ideas and innovative designs for climbing frames these days, such as castles, that kids are simply spoilt for choice. Kids can have hours of fun exercising their imaginations and their bodies as they can act out real life adventures of their favourite TV and computer game heroes instead of just sitting watching them.

There are such a wide range of climbing frames and accessories available on the market that I'm pretty sure you'll be able to find the perfect play system for your child at a price that you can afford. Bring back the good old fashioned fun with a traditional wooden climbing frame and watch your kids grow and develop as they transform themselves from couch potatoes into healthy and active human beings.
