While the need to expend energy is very important in children’s lives, rest is also a beneficial time that gives them an opportunity to calm down, replenish their energy and quietly plan their next activity.

Rest allows children to recover from the exertions of physical activity, to assimilate what they have just done or shared on play equipment, as well as improving their concentration.

Playhouses and themed equipment for outdoor play areas are designed to encourage quiet moments and rest in play areas.

They are a good complement to dynamic play structures in outdoor spaces.
