Whenever my 3 year old daughter swings, she references her favorite book, Higher! Higher! by Leslie Patricelli. Swinging is a great time to imagine and have fun with your kids. My daughter’s favorite activity is swinging on her Backyard Discovery Playset by far! She runs to the swings when we go outside first. Of course she loves the slides, the climbing, the sandbox, etc but her first stop is the swing.
It is no surprise that her favorite book is Higher! Higher!. This is a fantastic book about a girl swinging with her Daddy. Her imagination takes her high as the trees, as high as tall building, as high as airplanes, as high as the moon, and to a baby alien who is also on a swing in outer space. The entire time, the girl ask her Daddy to push her “Higher! Higher!” with giggles. Elizabeth, my 3 year old mimics the book when we push her on the swing. We imagine what it would be like to swing as high as the trees, the clouds, and the moon. It’s a lot of fun. If you have a swing enthusiast, consider buying this book. Well worth the $10 price!
Kids of all ages love to swing
Kids love swinging on swing sets. We had some kids over to enjoy our Backyard Discovery Patriot playset and the swings were a happening place! Kids from ages 3-10 loved swinging together. I love that our playset can have 3 kids swinging at one time – safely! Check out this video!
Don’t you love it when your kids learn something and pride beams from their faces? When we first set up this playset this Spring, Elijah did not know how to get the Glider Swing going. He didn’t even know how to keep the speed up once I started pushing him. Now, Elijah, age 5, is so proud that he can go High on the Backyard Discovery Glider! Check out his skills with this video!

Not only does swinging build muscles in kids legs, confidence in new abilities, but strong imaginations!
