Playground safety has also become an important issue in Australia. The Department of Health says that a safe, secure and sustainable environment is a prerequisite for a healthy nation. It means looking for safe playground surface, designing play equipment that is close to the ground, fenced play areas, using buckles in swings among others.

Risk of common play injuries such as fractures and dislocations have led parents to safe play areas where they stay close to their children. Eliminating risk has not just removed the access to nature but also removed children from exercising natural human instincts and abilities such as climbing, hanging, jumping, leaping, touching and exploring their imagination.

Australian children are also spending longer hours indoors. In March 2011, Planet Ark commissioned an independent study to investigate childhood interaction with nature and how this interaction is changing. The results of this research show that the landscape of childhood has changed. In a single generation there has been a profound shift from outdoor to indoor play. “Australia is a nation defined by its outdoor environments – the red centre, golden beaches, the bush and clear blue seas. However, research reveals that one in ten Aussie kids play outside once a week or less. We have become a nation of indoors, not outdoors.” From Climbing Trees: Getting Aussie Kids Back Outside.

Research shows that exposure to nature improves mental and physical health and also helps children learn about the natural world and develop key life skills such as problem solving and resilience. “Our fast-paced, screen-driven lifestyle means children are losing touch with nature in a way we have never experienced before, and missing out on developing a life-long connection to nature,” says Planet Ark’s National Tree Day Manager Debbie Agnew. Their 2017 report shows that learning outdoors can help children develop crucial skills Australian teachers say they will need most to face major global challenges, like climate change, in the future: critical thinking and problem solving, ‘grit’ or resilience, and emotional intelligence.

My Cubby, Australia’s cubby house specialist, has filled the lives of many children with dreams, stimulated their imagination and inspired them to learn new things through play since 2011. This company has a cubby house that suits every budget and fits every child’s dream. They also give parents the assurance that the cubby house will be personalised to their specification and will last their children’s childhood.

Playing outdoors in wooden playhouses is a great way to develop the intellectual abilities and fine motor skills of a child. Moreover, play is very essential for children to have balance in their life. While many schools do not have the luxury of a playground for children to engage in outdoor play, it is really important that children are able to play in their home environment to ensure their cognitive, physical, social, and emotional well-being.

One of the best things about My Cubby’s activities is that parents can be in the know about what their children are doing unlike many online games and activities. These outdoor activities inspire them to use their imagination and develop their creativity in new ways.

Moreover, the cubbies are designed in a way that makes them perfect for the Australian climate.

My Cubby began with one major mission - to give children a break from technology and get them outdoors in fun-filled healthy play activities. My Cubby has a whole range of cubby houses to help fill in the play needs of a child. They can be contacted by calling 1800 121513 or sending an email to
