Keep your kids active during social distancing!

At WillyGoat, we are committed to providing a safe and fun experience for all. As COVID-19 -- the disease caused by the 2019 novel coronavirus -- reshapes our lives, the importance of isolation and “social distancing,” has been brought to the forefront. With travel plans upended, and local hotspots temporarily closing down for safety concerns, fun is in high demand, and while social isolation stinks, you don’t have to do it all indoors.

Instead of your vacation, adapt your backyard space to accommodate the perfect staycation. This way, you don’t have to leave the house for your children to have a good time. You can rest easy knowing that they are safe, but also not too bored from sitting inside all day. This post will explain not only how to add to your backyard space on WillyGoat, but why doing so can help through these tough times. 

What is so helpful about expanding your backyard playspace? Well, there are a few reasons why adding to your backyard can be beneficial for you and your children, especially in a time like this.

  • According to the Mayo Clinic and The Department of Health and Human Services,  children ages 2-12 should have at least an hour of activity a day. Beyond simply providing fun, this activity is important for growth and development.
  • By adding to your backyard, you don’t have to leave the house to find fun or entertain your children. Everything you need is within the safe confines of your own home.
  • Outdoor activities serve as a place of congregation for your children. By adding activities to your backyard, it is easier to keep an eye on your children while they’re having fun.

For these reasons, it's clear that adding to your backyard experience is a great way to not only keep your children safe and entertained, but also allow them to grow and develop. However, that beckons at another question: In the expansive world of outdoor play equipment, where should you begin searching for the right equipment, and where does WillyGoat fit in?
