A Climbing scaffold means joy and fun for the little ones. It is a versatile play equipment that can be found on most public playgrounds. Such a scaffold with its many different elements offers the child the opportunity to let off steam in any form and supports numerous abilities and skills.
Pleasantly, the number of children visiting the playground is decreasing and the digital media are becoming more and more interesting. Many parents do not even know how important it is to regularly visit a playground with the child or to register it with the sports club. The risk of motor deficits is reduced and a healthy further development is promoted by abundant activity in childhood.
Climbing frames can be found on almost every playground in the world and can be made of a wide variety of materials. Usually it is metal tube, plastic, wooden or rope constructions in various sizes that offer the short the opportunity to climb.
In contrast to the past, these days it is more rope constructions than metal climbing scaffolds. Nevertheless, the function has remained the same in the past as it is today, and the individual levels are connected to each other by ladders, grids or slides.
The little ones learn many important things while playing, which play an important role for their development. Climbing on a climbing frame is no exception. It claims different potentials, through which a child can develop better and easier.
Climbing on a climbing frame is particularly good, for example for developing and promoting the sense of balance, but coordination is also trained. Movement sequences and the correct sequence of movements are passively developed further, without the child noticing anything about them.
Nowadays, the movement spaces of the little ones are more and more restricted and the interests develop elsewhere. Televisions, computer games or mobile phones are currently more interesting for most children than the playground around the corner.
Possible consequences for this behaviour are a widespread lack of exercise, which in turn leads to motor deficits in some people. Many people already have big problems with the simplest exercises, such as running backwards, balancing or doing a somersault tree.
One of the consequences of these deficits is that many of the little ones lose the desire for activity and sport when they become aware that they have problems with the simplest exercises. Little activity in connection with increasingly unhealthy eating and drinking leads more and more often to severe obesity in the further development of the little ones.
Serious overweight in childhood can have a negative effect on the further development of the little ones. Most children do not yet understand that healthy eating is an important part of their health.
When the little ones first suffer from overweight, the natural urge to move decreases because they notice relatively quickly that they can no longer keep up with their peers. So the desire to visit the playground or to play in the garden in general or to visit a sports club in your spare time fades.
But since they have to do something in their free time, televisions, mobile phones and computers are taking up more and more space in children's lives.
Children learn new behaviour patterns every day. Active parents also usually have active little ones. This is attributed to the role model function. Especially small children are dependent on their parents taking the initiative and registering them with the sports club, for example.
More active parents are usually more interested in their little ones doing sports in their free time and moving around outside. As long as the children are small, they orient themselves on what is done in the family. If the family is very active and does a lot on weekends, the probability that the child will have motor deficits in a few years is much lower than if the family sits together on the sofa.
In childhood, too, a lot depends on parents and family when it comes to nutrition. If parents constantly give their children sweets between meals, and the little ones generally spend a lot of time in front of the computer or television instead of moving, the risk of being overweight increases considerably.
For the little ones, there are many activities and leisure activities everywhere to be active alongside school or kindergarten. The basis are the so-called everyday activities, at home these are activities like tidying up rooms, taking garbage away and shopping together.
To these can be added leisure activities in which you don't sweat or get out of breath, such as joint cycling tours or kick scooters and sporting activities in which you sweat, for example, the little ones catch the big ones or go swimming together. To be active enough every day you should do something with everyone.
Children don't need much to get going. They are not interested in expensive sports equipment, do not even need a huge garden or a playground. In order to provide them with enough exercise, they do not necessarily have to have any activity in the schedule every day.
It is also enough to let off steam and play, you can develop imaginative game ideas outdoors from sticks, stones, old buckets and leaves, for example. Also common kicking, catching or playing - that supports the development. With very simple ideas and play equipment such as a climbing frame, a swing, a sandbox or a slide, the little ones can spend long afternoons occupying themselves and moving.
As good as exercise is for the health of the little ones, as unfavourable is an excess of television or computer games. Because then the little ones have little or no time to play and romp with their friends or siblings. There is also a risk that sweets will be eaten in large quantities during television or similar activities.
It does not necessarily have to be a membership in the sports club or fixed dates in the calendar but a daily romp on the playground or in the garden is sufficient for the time being to support the children motorically.
