Encouraging Inclusive Play For All Children
We are blessed with a lot of sunny days in Colorado which means we have a lot of opportunities to get outside and enjoy active playtime by heading the playgrounds located around us. My kids love park days and I do too because I know that those moments of playtime are also chances for my kids to test their abilities, gain courage, and of course burn some energy.
This girl is happy on any playground but we especially love our inclusive play playground that is just minutes from our house. They are constantly adding new features that encourage so much creative play. Hey, I am all about finding ways to use those brains and keep an active body away from the screens and finding playgrounds that our kids are comfortable with makes that playtime even more fun.
What Is Inclusive Play?
Creating an inclusive play playground is much more than just adding colorful play components and connecting them to ramp inclines. Landscape Structures provides access, promotes inclusive play between children of all abilities, and develops the whole community across all developmental domains. They provide children and families with inclusive environments that promote playing together more independently, children feel respected, nurtured, encouraged, and active during play.
I love that social equity and inclusion are the result of inclusive playgrounds and I am seeing an increasingly diverse social community every time we visit the Landscape Structures playgrounds near our home.

Jude is our cautious kid and with that brings him some anxiety when going to the playground. Sounds crazy but sometimes he just gets so into his head that he cannot enjoy his play time with out worrying about getting hurt or falling. The structure that we love the most gives him more confidence to try more challenges which is great.
Teagan being our more adventurous kid finds all kinds of exciting things to try. What I love is that she uses this time to not only play on the playground but meet new friends. I see her helping other kids that might need a little extra encouragement and that makes me so happy to see her being a leader and have empathy for others around her.
Sensory Awareness Month
Did you know that October is Sensory Awareness Month? October is the perfect time for everyone to come together with the sensory community to spread awareness of sensory processing and how it can affect children and adults. As parents I think it is important to take this time to also speak with my children about what sensory awareness month is all about. Giving them information about how others might use the inclusive play playground structures is a great way to start. I am all about giving my kids information that will further educate them and help them learn more about others in our community.
