Gumnut Cubby House
The Gumnt cubby house is one of our designs that comes in a smaller size for those who do not have the space in their backyard for a larger cubby. It has three large windows and a covered porch. While it is smaller in size, it is no less of the best-time-ever for kids who play in it. It is the perfect size to be the foundation of their imagination to go into the many worlds they daydream about. They will hide away from the bad guys, take off into space, and sail the high seas with Captain Cook - be sure to ask them where they are going today!
When you get kids outside playing, they exercise without even knowing it by running, playing games like tag - pretty much everything they do in the backyard is some sort of exercise. Did you know that there is a link between kids fitness and their academic performance? It's true! A study that shows a strong correlation between fitness and academic performance tracked more than 13,000 students during 2011 and 2012 school year.
You will be surprised at the results. It measured kids fitness levels with their school performance and it was rated according to their age and academic levels. The results showed that the more fitness tests that kids passed, the greater their likelihood was to score higher on reading and math assessments. Of those kids that didn't meet the fitness standards, only half of them met state standards in reading, and fewer than half met the math standards. So, get your kids outside playing in a cubby today and reap the lifetime of rewards.
Your kids will want to make this cubby house a place that is all their own. You can decorate the inside to help your children feel right at home in their cubby house. Areas around your cubby can be made into a garden or extend your child's play area by adding a swing set or spring animal toy. We have fun outdoor toys that will add to your cubby house kit. You can choose to purchase one of the door kits which have the choices of half door or full door sizes, flower boxes to pretty up the windows in the front of the cubby house, skylights for more natural light inside the cubbie itself, and a letter box where you can exchange mail with your child.
