    One thing we did last year was to keep a notebook in our car and the kids would “rate” each playground. We took them to some really small playgrounds or ones that weren’t so nice so that they would have something to compare to. The older kids would rate it 1-10 and then make some comments like: Nice bathrooms, no shade, or good for older kids (or younger kids), etc. It was good to look back at and see which ones were good and which playgrounds we do not want to go to again. Plus, now they even tell us reasons why or why we shouldn’t go to a certain playground. For example, one playground in our area is great for older kids but not for the littles so they know that if our whole family is going that is not a playground to go to, but if it is just the older ones then it would be okay.
