If you have some kind of playground, swingset, slide, or a similar area on your property for your kids or grandkids to play, chances are that they’ve seen a lot of activity this year.
Because these types of things often have a lot of pinch points and mechanical pieces, it’s important to the little ones’ safety to keep them in good condition and hazard-free. Of course, it’s always a good time to check up on the condition of things like these with safety in mind, but an even better time to do it is at the beginning of spring. Especially if your swingset/etc. has wooden parts, which contract and expand during winter, parts can become loose and potentially dangerous.
So why not set a calendar event or some other kind of reminder for April or May to give the playground in your yard a safety inspection? If you do, you’ll have just another reason why you can be the best parent/grandparent of the year!
