So-Called ‘Adventure Playgrounds’ May Look Like Dangerous Dumps But Foster Creativity
This playground actually looks pretty sweet!
Sure, it may seem like a couple of piles of wood and just random junk lying around but really it's a new kind of playground that helps foster creativity and "unstructured play."
Apparently the playgrounds we've all come to know as the "traditional" ones just don't let kids use their imagination enough, that's where "adventure playgrounds" come in!
If kids want to learn how to use real tools like hammers and saws, or even if they want to test out some helmets and hit themselves with hammers (seriously, a kid is doing that in the video) then more power to them!
The mentality of these playgrounds are for kids to take and learn from risks and mistakes and figure things out for themselves. So it probably would be a bad idea for helicopter parents to go there and try to avoid having a heart attack!
