Foam For Kids: Safe and Fun!
Creating a safe and fun play area for kids is something every parent should strive to do. That’s because study after study has shown that regular playtime is vital for a child’s social, psychological, and behavioral development, and also helps stimulate creativity and promote physical dexterity. And let’s face it: play time gives parents a much deserved opportunity to sit back with a cup of coffee and relax for a few minutes.
But how can you go about making a safe play space in your home without eliminating all the fun? By using foam, of course! Here are some ways that you can use affordable foam products from Foam Factory to help protect children from injury and provide them with an exciting play area.
- Wrap exposed basement poles and beams with bumper pads made of medium density open-cell foam to reduce injuries from inadvertent impacts. (Custom cutting is available for nonstandard pole diameters.)
- Cover hard corners, stair edges, and other protruding obstacles with medium or high density foam sheets to protect shins, knees, elbows, and heads against falls.
- Craft DIY play forts out of medical foam body wedges or leg support blocks. Although originally intended as pillows to help relieve joint pain, our body wedges and leg support blocks make excellent (and durable) building blocks for toddlers—especially when stacked on top of each other or placed back-to-back.
- Create soft landing spaces out of foam sacks. All children love to climb and jump, so giving them a big, soft space to land is essential for safety. Our foam sacks, which come in a variety of sizes, are just the product for the job. Best of all, they can double as a bed for nap time or a chair for TV time.
