2021 Holiday Gift Guide: For Active Kids

It can be hard gift-shopping for kids, especially if they have a ton of energy and are really active. A simple toy or game might not hold their focus for long. If you’re looking for a gift to give to an energetic kid, you’re in the right place. Welcome to this active kids flooring gift guide. 

Whether you’re shopping for a young athlete, dancer, gymnast, or just someone who’s always on the move, you can find the perfect gift for their busy lifestyle.

Gifts for Outdoor Fun

For kids who like to get outside and play, you can take the fun to the next level. Outdoor toys and playsets help keep kids active and grow their imaginations, too!

Playground Flooring

Kids who play outside also need a safe surface to catch them when they fall. Playground tiles, mulch, and even playground turf offer some extra cushion and protection while children are hard at play. 

Playground flooring is the perfect way to revamp an outdoor playground for your kid. In addition, many of our playground flooring options are fall height certified for extra safety.

Playground Swing Mats

Our playground mats are perfect for use in high traffic areas of the playground, such as under swing sets or at the base of slides. Playground mats prevent your mulch from getting too worn down and creating bare, muddy spots. They also provide a bit of extra cushioning in high-impact areas.
