Children love to play outside in the sunshine - especially when they're surrounded by other children on a playground, and since many schools fail to offer enough free-play time outdoors - getting your children to the playground after school each day is important for their health and overall well-being.

With that in mind, read on to learn how you can reduce the risk of injury and keep your children safe at the playground.
