Why do kids go up the slide? They are seeking risk and challenge in their play. Kids feel powerful scaling the slide. Going up the slide is fun. It’s healthy adventure, often part of imaginative play. Climbing the slide helps kids test their strength, find their limits and gain balance, spatial awareness, and yes, social awareness and consideration. If a conflict comes up— another child wants to slide down— it’s a prime opportunity for kids to practice problem solving in their play.
