It sometimes seems like the only people in the world who can keep up with the formidable Kacy Catanzaro (of American Ninja Warrior fame) are kids. Up, down, around, back through and back again…. and once more! If you’re raising a little American Ninja Warrior yourself, it’s time to outfit your backyard with an activity center and give your furniture a break.
We recently began working on our first American Ninja Warrior inspired backyard course. As always, Barbara created a sketch in collaboration with the family to create the most engaging and challenging structure possible. Next step: fabrication. (Stay tuned for updates on the blog.)
While we hope to create more ninja-style courses for older kids in the future, we’ve got the younger set covered, too. These activity centers create loops of play by connecting swings, monkey bars, rings, trolley rides and more. Because each component is connected to the next, you can maximize the options for fun even in a small space.
They are easy to customize to your kids’ interests, and the swings can even be swapped out as they grow. This family opted for swings, monkey bars and a slide with neutral-colored wood for a natural look that highlights the beauty of the surrounding greenery.
