There is some­thing mag­i­cal about an out­door play­house. A place to mimic mom and dad’s rou­tine, a hide­away spot for teens, a pirate’s secret refuge… a play­house plays an impor­tant role in a child’s devel­op­ment. Here is a selec­tion of our favorite out­door playhouses.

A play­house is the per­fect spot to pre­tend play and mimic mom or dad’s home rou­tine: orga­niz­ing toys, dust­ing, clean­ing and water­ing bal­cony plants; a play­house teaches a child to be responsible.

On the other hand, in a play­house, mess is allowed, and while par­ents usu­ally ask for a kid’s room to be tidy and in order, a play­house is their zone, a space where they are allowed to bring rocks, sand and other yard creatures.

Let your child ask you when they feel they need help clean­ing their play­house and make the playhouse-cleaning time a shared and fun moment.

A play­house can be cus­tomized in many ways, girly and roman­tic, pirate and adven­ture themed, col­or­ful or hid­den in the yard’s landscape.

A play­house also grows with your child and can eas­ily be updated into a teen’s hide­away and refuge spot from the adults’ world.

Whether you pur­chase a ready-to-assemble play­house or build your own, be sure that it’ll be worth the invest­ment. Count­less hours or fun, pre­tend play and adven­tures will be spent in the yard, far away from mod­ern elec­tronic devices and the TV set. Priceless!
