Crossing is a fun activity that children often approach with great apprehension as it takes place on narrow, unstable, or perforated horizontal or vertical components.
In an outdoor playground, these components take the form of gangways, mobile bridges, climbing walls, or rope meshes. Each accessory is a little trail with its start and endpoint that requires children to use balance and coordination to complete. Concentration and a commitment to pushing limits are also necessary to make their way across an elevated structure surrounded by space.
Successful completion boosts children’s self-confidence and motivates them to tackle more complex tasks.
