How Cubby Houses Encourage Outdoor Play For Kids
Kids love cubby houses in Australia! Is it any wonder why the humble cubby is fast becoming the most wanted outdoor play equipment in Aussie yards?
Why kids love cubby houses
You really can’t go wrong adding a cubby house to your yard. There are a multitude of reasons why your children will love playing in a cubby. Here are just a few reasons why cubby houses in Australia are a great addition to any family’s yard:
Cubbies encourage outdoor play
Let’s face it, anything that gets the kids off the screens and immersed in nature is a good thing! Obviously, there’s a time and a place for technology, but there’s a lot more to be gained by playing outside. Being that cubbies are undercover too, this means a little rain won’t necessarily dampen your child’s outdoor pursuits either!
Cubbies encourage imaginative play
Cubby houses in Australia offer endless play ideas for curious young minds. Kids can play shop through the windows of a cubby, play Mums and Dads with little babies (dolls) or even pretend to play chef with playdoh food. There’s really no end to where your child’s imagination can take them when playing in their cubby house.
Cubbies encourage independence
Cubby houses offer safe play spaces for little kids and this in turn encourages independence. Your children can turn their little cubbies into a haven of fun, filled with their favourite soft toys, books, blankets and small toys. It’s a little home away from home and all in the comfort of their own yard.
