How to Build Budget Backyard Playground for Kids

A backyard is perhaps the most accessible and effortless solution to some of the problems faced by American kids and their parents. Richard Louv, the man behind the book, “Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature Deficit-Disorder”  posted a challenge to parents as he observed, “Last time I checked, it was pretty tough to have a sense of wonder when you’re playing ‘Grand Theft Auto. If I were raising a generation of children under protective house arrest, where does that lead us in terms of our connection to the natural world?” This undeniable truth is even strengthened by the findings regarding decline of kids’ outdoor activities from 1997 to 2003, which alarmingly decrease by 50% according to sociologist, Sandra Hofferth from the University of Maryland.
