Backyard and Play Room Additions Adults Can Use TooHere at Play N’ Learn Playground Superstores we focus a lot on ways for kids to have fun, but rest assured we haven’t forgotten about you adults who want to have a good time too. When it comes to doing backyard or game room additions, you can play with both the kids and the adults in your family.  Read on for a few ways to make your play area fun for all ages.

Basketball Hoops

A basketball hoop is worth its weight in gold as an addition that the whole family can use. Whether it’s for playing HORSE with your kids or having an intense pick-up game with your neighbors, a basketball hoop can provide endless hours of activity no matter what your age.

Trampolines

If you have the space in your backyard, a trampoline with proper safety additions is a surefire way to keep you and the kids fit and busy. There’s no question that once the neighborhood catches wind of a trampoline that there will be a line of kids in your back yard. But bouncing on a trampoline isn’t just fun—it also helps develop stability muscles. If you bounce long enough you’ll realize that it’s quite the workout! If that’s not a justification for spending the evening bouncing around outside, we don’t know what is.

Table Tennis

Table tennis or ping pong is a great game to set up either outdoors or indoors, depending on how much space you have in your game room. It helps your kids develop hand-eye coordination and you can even play doubles to get more friends involved. But there’s no outgrowing table tennis—after your kids have played a few rounds it’s the parents’ turn!

Billiards

A pool table is a basement addition that’s really meant for the adults. The great thing about having a billiards table in your home is that now you don’t have to go to the bar and hire a sitter just to shoot some pool with your friends. And of course, the kids can use it too—just after you’re done playing.

Foosball

A foosball table is a nice addition that doesn’t take up quite as much space as a ping pong or pool table but still allows for a spirited competition. In fact, you don’t even need a game room to fit one of these into your home.

So when you’re considering your next backyard addition, consider an all-ages item. You can have your cake and eat it too—your kids will be happy and entertained, but you’ll also get a fun item that you can use with your adult friends. We’ll let you figure out who gets to play with it first, the parents or the kids.
