Shady spaces for your playground

Nothing can beat a really great sunscreen when it comes to protecting a child from a serious sunburn, but a great shady space is just as important! The thing about creating an inviting shady area is that the children have to WANT to spend time in it. I’ve rounded up some ideas that would have any kid happy to spend some time in the shade – these are all easy DIYs that would be perfect for the playground!

Some other fun ideas include:
  • Patio umbrellas
  • Mosquito netting
  • Collapsible play tunnels
  • Beach canopies
I’m currently in love with my big red patio umbrella, it makes me feel like I’m sitting on the patio at a cute little bistro!
