I found this article to be interesting:
What do you think? Are kids today over protected or is it just right?
I remember back in elementary school our playground equipment was not the best, but we had the basics. We had a set of swings, monkey bars, and slides. I had the greatest time hanging upside down like a bat, and swinging and sliding like crazy. We didn’t have to many rules, other then staying where our teachers could still see us. Pretty simple. One time I did fall off the monkey bars and hit my head on a piece of concrete sticking out of the ground. I survived the event with just a little scar and a memory.
Do you remember any of this playground equipment? I had so much fun on all of these things!!! We just had to be a little more creative with our play.
