We have long understood that well-designed outdoor play areas are vital. The few hours children spend outdoors each week builds social and cognitive skills which help them to thrive. No matter the space available, our team knows how to create a place where children can grow.
Every type of playground feature needs to be designed right and built right. In our eyes, creating a unique playground that's bursting with opportunity includes the capability to do them all. That's why our playground range contains everything from Activity Frames through to educational numeracy & literacy play panels.
Children love to explore and experiment with sand and water. It’s undeniably an enjoyable activity to extend and challenge children’s learning.
Sand and water play areas provide brilliant opportunities for children to practice cooperative play and sharing. Also, they provide a sensory experience as they enjoy manipulating the fluid materials.
“It was really great to sit down with Playcubed. They have lots of ideas, lots of really exciting apparatus that we could incorporate. The best thing is that they’re experienced – they have experience in creating the most amazing environments for pupils. The children love their new playground. They can’t wait to get into school in the morning and come out to play!”
Sand and water play promote physical development. As children dig, pour, sift, scoop, splash, they develop their large muscle range. Hand-eye coordination and small muscle control improve as children learn to manipulate sand and water accessories. They are also practicing eye-hand coordination.
Sand and water play promotes social skills as well. Children learn to cooperate, share, negotiate and play together.
In fact, we can even introduce maths and science concepts and help them develop during sand and water play. With measuring spoons and cups, different size containers, weighing scales, many lessons can be learned in a very fun way!
Language development will be enhanced in addition to new vocabulary such as sieve, stream, pour, stir etc all making sense through practical play.
