Fri-YAY Featured Inclusive Playground

OK, so it’s not a playground, but isn’t nature the world’s playground? When a friend asked if we wanted to go to a show at Wolf Trap I immediately jumped on the chance to see Saul Paul! Initially, I thought it was an adult show and afterward ended in a rap tutorial. I was super excited and was going to bring my kids anyway because I’m basically a full time mom with no camp option, so they go where I go! However, my friend crushed my rap dreams and told me it was a kid program at the Children’s Theater in the Woods.

Fri-YAY Featured Inclusive Playground!

There are five elements of inclusive play: Social/Emotional, Physical, Cognitive, Sensory, and Communication. Woodsboro Park does incorporate cognitive play features, like the alphabet board, drums at a lower level, and animal learning board. Kids love spinning! It is a great sensory relief! This park has a good mix of some vintage equipment and newer builds! One of the favorites is that dangerous old merry go round where some kid always gets thrown off! Spinning and hanging upside down are great for overstimulated kids (and grownups), and is a great calm down tool!

Fri-YAY Featured Inclusive Playground! Pinecliff Park

It was large for their ages, so there was a lot of freedom to run up the ramps and down the ramps and up the ramps…yeah, you get the picture.

the year of the playground

Almost 6 years ago when we lost our girls we had the vision of creating a space in our community where big sister Morgan and little sister Sadie could go and feel the warmth of their sisters through the laughter and love shared by countless families playing together. It seemed like it would be much …
