Playground Safety in Your Own Backyard

DataVault.jpgWith the start of a new school year, parents tend to have a lot on their mind. One topic that seems to come up a lot is playground safety. Although Lifetime doesn’t influence school ground safety, Lifetime does make a variety of home playground equipment built specifically with your child’s safety in mind. We have rubberized chain grips on our swing sets and playsets to prevent little fingers from being caught or pinched, and all hard edges have been rounded or covered. Our UV-protected, powder-coated steel and high-density polyethylene are heat resistant and will not burn kids on a sunny day like many metal or plastic outdoor toys. Our playground equipment passes all playground safety standards to ensure your child’s safety.

Our playground equipment is built durable and safe; however, it is also important to create a safe environment that has plenty of room and is free from safety hazards. We have a few suggestions and safety zone dimensions for our products to help you get started in making your home playground as safe and fun for your kids as possible. For a full list of specifications, dimensions, and safety zone tips for each product visit the Lifetime Online Store.

My favorite products from Lifetime- Our current family favorite is the Big Stuff Hard Roof Play set.  The boys and their cousins LOVE it!  Since our home has the tendency to become a gathering place, we get the most use out of our large array of Lifetime Folding Tables.  We have our eye on the Ace Flyer for Christmas.  I have grand plans for The 60” Lifetime Mammoth Basketball System, I just need to first do a little backyard excavation for the play area.

Building Our Lifetime Shed - Step 3
It's official! Our Lifetime shed building project is finished! A few weeks ago we added a wood "skirt" to the front of the wood platform to hide the gap underneath, to prevent critters from getting under our shed, and to make it more attractive. Since we have a wood fence around our yard, we bought two more fence boards and cut them into short pieces. We nailed them onto the platform and basically made a miniature fence along the bottom front of the shed. We then stained it to match the rest of our fencing. It turned out great! We used some of the rock that was left from building our house (and rock that we dug up in our yard when we built our shed) to build some landscaping beds around the shed. We planted a few pansies, and a bush, and - voila- we were done! We originally built our Lifetime shed to get rid of some of the c...
Who Dunnit?
My oh my. What a weekend! My husband and I hosted a party at our house for his squadron on Saturday night. We always like to make things interesting and entertaining so we decided to host a Murder Mystery party for our 39 guests. Never been to a Murder Mystery party? More details on how it works in a minute... The theme of our Murder Mystery party was a Class of '85 High School Reunion. Everyone had to dress like their character would have in the 80s. Wow, talk about some, like, totally awesome costumes! The women pulled out all the classics including jelly bracelets, leggings, shoulder pads, and cans of Aquanet hairspray to tease their hair. (Ah, the good 'ol days.) Not to be outdone, the men donned layered shirts, Miami Vice suits, acid washed jeans, and rat tails. Hillarious! And, if the costume reminiscing wasn't enough,...
