3 types of unique playground markings to make your school special

Modern thermoplastic playground markings are far more than just pretty images on the ground. With their vibrant colours, interactive imagery and unique layouts, thermoplastic markings provide a range of valuable opportunities for the entire school to benefit from – encouraging healthy physical exercise amongst students, while helping staff to define the ethos and personality of their school to parents and visitors.

When thinking about what playground markings might be right for your school, it’s worth taking a few minutes to consider: what makes your school unique?

For example, what traits does your school value the most? Friendship? Inclusiveness? Honesty? Sportsmanship? Or are you thinking more practically, looking to fill an awkward area or narrow space? With our extensive in-house expertise, our staff can help guide you through the process of selecting the best playground markings for your school, ensuring that the final product meets your specific requirements.

While snakes and ladders and other classic board game markings are often a popular choice here at Uniplay, we also stock more unusual and even unique types of playground markings for you to distinguish your school as truly special.

Logos and bespoke markings

Adding a colourful school logo to the playground entrance can instantly bring life to otherwise empty black tarmac. You can find plenty of examples of this in our case studies here at Uniplay – we recently created a bespoke school logo utilising the school’s own design to help bring a unique flair to a playground in the UK.

If the idea sounds like something that would work great for your own school, you can also think about whether you want the logo replicated exactly, or altered with one or two playful little details Do you have an animal in the logo which might look interesting as an interactive alphabet — like a caterpillar or dragon?

Previous customers of ours have often chosen to finish off their markings with key school messages or slogans. We have practical phrases like, “Stop, Look, Listen” but you might want to opt for your school motto or slogan. Popular school slogans include: “Live, Learn, Grow,” or “Inspire a Generation” or “The place to be” or “Where learning begins”.

Other bespoke markings we can make might centre around mascots. If your school has a mascot like an owl or unicorn — we can either embellish on an existing design or sketch or come up with a new one for you.

If you can dream it, we can help you create it!

3D designs

clock com - 3 types of unique playground markings to make your school special

3D thermodynamic playground markings can make your school special by adding adding additional depth and visual interest. Exciting 3D illusions can help to stimulate children’s imaginations, encouraging them to engage in creative play by making up their own games or scenarios – such as a daredevil cross over the dizzying heights of this 3D canyon!

Our 3D designs are also available in a range of popular games like Snakes and Ladders or hopscotch, all of which share the most desirable trait of all classic playground games – easy to learn, and fun to play! Suitable for any age, these can be adapted by the players to be more complex or simple!

3D playground markings can help children develop their overall fitness with agility and balance games like with our fitness trail. Some schools choose to get the fitness trail and expand it with other active zone markings to include specific areas for stretching, jumping, skipping, spinning, or sprinting.

Trail markings

Last but not least, if you want to have playground markings to increase active play and exercise we highly recommend trail markings! These specific markings serve as an activity guide by outlining areas for physical activity like stretching, hopping, jumping, and balancing to help with the development of motor-skills, stimulate competition while helping them reach desired fitness and mobility goals.

We’ve done it all! From mix and match fitness trails, emotional intelligence areas, playground school logos, adding school mottos, or unique playground games there’s sure to be a combination which fits your budget and playground.

We take on all types of projects for playgrounds that are big or small, round or square, odd shaped or around a building— we can help you design and efficiently use playground space with perfect markings to make outdoor play more fun for your students!
