Swing-N-Slide offers many accessories to fit your individual needs. 

 

Social/Emotional 4

Skills

  • Children learn to negotiate and compromise while playing with others in a shared play space.
  • Awareness of others can be practiced as children make sure everyone is clear of the slide before sliding down or make sure to give the swings plenty of room when walking in front of them while in use.
  • Parallel play, cooperative play and social interaction can all be facilitated while building confidence. 

Play Ideas

  • Use chalk to decorate the outside or inside of the clubhouse independently or with others.
  • Create pretend play scenarios for kids to use the clubhouse as a restaurant, shopping mall or school. 

Adaptation Ideas

  • Tape picture cues of stop signs at the bottom of the slide or other locations on the play set to enforce direction.

Sensory 3

Skills

  • Slides help in the development of the vestibular system, as the body is in motion and the child goes down the slide in different positions.
  • Children can explore new textures while playing in the sandbox area. Note: Sand is sold separately.
  • Children receive proprioceptive input as they climb the ladder, slide down the slide or swing on the swings.

Play Ideas

  • The caregiver can motivate the child to pump his legs harder and swing higher by asking him to touch the caregiver’s hands with his feet.
  • Using different kitchen utensils (wooden spoons, spatulas, etc.) have children make music with the play set as their instrument. Slide the spoon across the wooden slats in the clubhouse or pat the bottom on the slide with the spatula. 
  • Set up a sprinkler at the bottom of the slide to add in another element on hot days. Note: Slide may be slippery when wet. Children should always be supervised.

Adaptation Ideas

  • Give children a beginning push on the swing to get them moving.
  • Purchase additional handles from Swing-N-Slide for the ladder area for added tactile stimulation and balance.

Physical 3

Skills

  • Foot placement, weight shifting and whole body strength are used while climbing the ladder to the clubhouse or to go down the slide.
  • Eye-hand coordination, bilateral coordination and balance are used when climbing the ladder.
  • Balance and core strength are worked on when children sit and slide down the slide or swing on the swings.
  • Children have the opportunity to strengthen and use their gross motor skills during active play on this set.

Play Ideas

  • Have the child slide down the slide with another child behind them for extra support.
  • Have the child slide down the slide in different positions, such as lying on his back, laying feet first on his belly and sitting.
  • Using all three swings, have children try to swing in unison.

Adaptation Ideas

  • Purchase additional handles from Swing-N-Slide for the ladder area or slide to aid in balance.
  • Give children a beginning push on the swing to get them moving.
  • Replace the traditional swing with a Comfy-N-Secure Coaster Swing, sold separately, to provide extra support for children who have physical limitations.
