5 small swing sets for small yards that are perfect for little kids!
It’s hot outside in Florida and I’m hoping the weather starts to cool soon! It would be nice not to be drenched in sweat after 5 minutes outside.
Still, as much as we’re stuck at home these days, our options are to veg out inside or get active outside.
I don’t know about you, but I need my kids to run off some pent up energy when they’re home!
3 days a week my son is in preschool, but the other 2 days he needs things to do. And my daughter, who is participating in virtual school at the moment really needs to get outside and break away from the computer screen. So much so that she’s been opting out of playing on her tablet most days because, even she, is starting to be annoyed sitting and staring at a computer screen most of the day.
Well, one of the first things the kids tend to do when going to play outside is to run toward our play set in the back yard. My daughter has always loved to swing.
Most kids do, right?
Well, it’s not easy for me to coordinate time to head to the park on our crazy, mis-matched schedules. Plus, it’s not always convenient loading the crew up, either.
I choose to bring the park experience to our back yard with a nice swing set.
But, what do you do if you don’t have much yard space?
Well, I don’t really think you need a whole lot! Kids find extraordinary ways to keep themselves entertained. But, I understand the desire to boost the backyard excitement.

Swing Sets for Small Yards & Little Kids
Whether you’re stuck at home during a pandemic, taking a break from work, or need the kids to run off some energy outdoors, you’ll love these amazing small swing sets for small yards! Perfect for your tiny tot to swing and slide at home.
This brightly colored set is geared toward ages 1 month (which is actually questionable in my opinion) to 6 years! And it’s more than just a swing and slide! This set is like having a bit of a fair in the backyard with ring toss on one side and a basketball hoop on the other. There’s even a safety device on the swing to keep smaller babies strapped into the seat. This can be removed when your kiddo is big enough to keep him or herself planted in the seat.
