In today’s Covid stay-at-home climate, it’s more important than ever to get your kids to play outdoors. This Holiday season, gift your children with a climbing dome.
Outdoor play in a climbing dome is the safe monkey-bar that gives your children an opportunity to exert their seemingly boundless energy in the safety of your own yard. Thru geodome climbing exercise, swinging and upside-down acrobatics young energetic children build muscles, develop critical life skills and gain self-confidence.
Benefits of Harnessing the Power of Outdoor Play
Experts agree that it’s important to balance technology by setting aside time for outdoor play. There are many physical and social health benefits attributed to outdoor play. Here’s just a few reasons why parents and caregivers might want to consider a climbing dome:
- Physical – Improved overall health, muscle strength and motor skills.
- Social – Improved peer-to-peer relationships, openness with caregivers and greater confidence self-awareness.
Additionally, children who spend more active time outdoors in their formative years are generally more active as they age. Encouraging outdoor play helps develop a healthy mindset about maintaining an active adult lifestyle.
“We care for children ages two to five-years-old. The 16 ft. tall geodome from Pacific Domes has been so instrumental in our school’s ability to expand its ‘Reggio Emilia’ inspired learning program. The children enjoy inspiration from the outdoors all year round! Thank you, Pacific Domes team for helping us to create this amazing addition to our more typical indoor classroom!” —Jessica Spencian, Children’s Workshop Oakland, Pre-school in California
A Child’s Dome Garden for Classrooms and Play
“Nature makes the whole world kin”. — Shakespeare
Born naturalists, eager to explore earth’s unique inhabitants, children are more apt to engage in a dome garden classroom – discover nutritious foods from seed to table and learn healthy connections through playground activities Why? Because garden domes and playground domes become a fun-filled hub for hands-on learning.
There are numerous benefits derived from having an outdoor classroom learning environment. For starters, how about teaching kids where their food comes from?
A greenhouse-like garden dome filters natural 360° sunlight, inviting a child’s innate curiosity to explore and connect first-hand with earth’s diverse eco-system. In the wonderful world of outdoor learning, geodesic-engineered playground domes are the perfect complement to a garden dome environment.
Countering the effects of technology overload from the indoor classroom and sparking the grassroots movement towards cultivating Nature Smart Children, Pacific Domes of Southern Oregon envisions a young child’s perfect learning environment — a child’s outdoor dome garden classroom with a playground dome in every classroom.
