WINTERIZE PLAY EQUIPMENT
If you live in a cold climate it is necessary to prepare your child's play equipment for the winter season. This will extend the life of the equipment. Sturdy, wooden play equipment, anchored in the ground can weather the outdoors, as can heavier plastic or metal models. Remove the swings from heavy equipment and bring indoors. Wooden play equipment will last longer with water sealer applied in the fall and spring.. Also check for splinters and sand rough areas. Smaller lighter-weight units, especially plastic, should go inside to avoid sharp edges from breakage.
