Playtime is an important part of your child's development process. During play they develop cognitive and athletic skills, in addition to building self-confidence and learning to be creative. TV and video games will try to compete for your child's attention, but with the right gaming room ideas and tools, you can create an environment that encourages active play (as opposed to passive entertainment). Below we have given inspiration for some of the best playroom ideas that will keep your children busy for hours.

Camping is not simpler than this playroom with a tent cabin bed. The two poles keep the cloth side of the four-poster bed up. However, the awning is collapsible to provide a real camping experience. To make sure your little one does not get scared when the hood is down, the colorful lights that are stretched from the top do not keep the tent too dark – and they create the impression of stars in the sky. There is also an exit on the right side, to ensure that no one ever gets trapped in the tent.

The CDC recommends that children receive at least 60 minutes of physical exercise every day, and this playroom idea can help your little ones comply with these guidelines. Because it is inside, the weather is never a factor. The climbing wall increases the physical strength, coordination and balance, while the tube shifts – well, that's just fun.

This playroom has everything from huts and deer to trees painted on the walls and birds fly overhead. Children can play together in common areas (including tables, chairs and wall-mounted TVs) and also spend time alone in their respective mini-cabins, including a bed, table, lamp and personal belongings. Each cabin is actually a playhouse kit that can be mounted with screws and nails. The set consists of functional windows, flower boxes, a door, wall panels, roof panels and a handrail.
