The Kettle Creek cubby house is a new and unique addition to our array of cubby houses. This is a fun cubby that was designed with the notion of your child enjoying the inside of the cubby as much as the deck on the outside of the cubby. The expansive deck offers a place for your little ones to enjoy a tea party or other type of activity that involves a table and chairs. Many kids like to use this space when they play their imaginary games.
The covered porch area offers a fun design that is made to look like a real house. The Kettle Creek is one of our best designs that kids can enjoy in almost any back yard with enough space to enjoy an imaginary game or two. The windows inside the cubby prevent the cubby from becoming too stuffy. Additional accessories for the cubby can be purchased to add a more realist touch to the cubby house such as a front door or a skylight to add inside the house. Also flower beds can be added to offer a quaint home style charm to the cottage.
This cubby is raised with posts fitted so that it lifts the cubby just above ground level and the porch can be accessed by climbing four stairs. A letter box can be added to the porch so that the children can get mail. This can be a great deal of fun for kids to incorporate into their pretend play. Children will enjoy hours on end of fun in their own back yard with the Kettle Creek cubby house.
“Compared to the 1970s, children now spend 50 percent less time in unstructured outdoor activities. Children ages 10 to 16 now spend, on average, only 12.6 minutes per day in vigorous physical activity. Yet they spend an average of 10.4 waking hours each day relatively motionless.” ~ the Alliance for Childhood. Kids need time on their own to let their imaginations create fun things to do, problems to solve and adventures to journey. Having a wooden playhouse like the Kettle Creek cubby house in their backyard will help them with this childhood task. Just think of all of the fun they can have while playing safely just outside their own home.
Additional outside toys are available to purchase that will go with your cubby house. Your children will enjoy their use as well. These toys range from animal themed spring rockers, swing sets, and wooden toys like a ship’s steering wheel where your child can be captain of their own fleet.
