Playground Markings in Huntingdon and Peterborough
What are playground markings?
Playground markings are designs that are applied to playground surfaces like tarmac and concrete to make activities easier to set up. Some playground markings are made from paint but our thermoplastic playground markings will last far longer in your Huntingdon and Peterborough playground, not to mention being non-toxic and environmentally friendly.
What makes playground markings so useful for playgrounds?
Playgrounds are busy areas during breaks and you don’t want all the different activities to collide so it’s good to use playground markings to separate the activities so that you run less chance of encountering accidents. You can also use playground markings to designate any areas that shouldn’t be used and where to go in an emergency.
Maintain an active lifestyle
Having an active lifestyle (in conjunction with a healthy diet) will help to improve mobility, endurance and health. Getting those habits early will reduce the chances of children suffering later in life due to medical complications. The National Child Measurement Programme (2019/2020) discovered that 25.3% of Reception children and 43.8% of Year Six children in Peterborough were overweight, obese or severely obese.
Mental health care
Children need breaks throughout the day and a great way for them to recharge is through some fresh air and activity. Studies show that this will help to control stress levels, as well as sleep better at night, which will also help them. Our playground markings are great for enabling them to take those breaks and get on with those activities as soon as they get to the playground.
What playground markings we’d choose
Variety is the first step
You will need to choose activities that will suit your demographic, with age-appropriate games and learning opportunities that will help to develop their skills. This can include educational graphics, target games and sports.
Younger children would enjoy…
Children learn through play so take the opportunity to get outside and tackle learning from a new angle. Some children will learn better with a clear picture so use our maps and number caterpillars to help them understand the topics. Why not start developing their problem-solving skills with one of our fun mazes too?
Older children would love…
Older children still need to blow off some steam so giving them activities like long jump, netball and circuit training can really help. We have world maps that can build on what they have already learnt in Geography lessons and can help them to learn more about the world around them. We also have markings that can help with Science such as our skeleton playground marking.
There are so many opportunities to make a great space so get in touch today to get your playground markings in Huntingdon and Peterborough underway. We would love to help!
