4 benefits of colourful characters & objects for your playground markingsMay 31, 2019
We’ve got a huge range of thermoplastic markings to choose from here at Uniplay, so whatever you want to achieve for your playground – whether that’s reinforcing learning objectives or simply adding some personality to the space – you can always be sure of a broad range of choice. Amongst our key offerings are our brightly coloured characters and object playground markings, which can be effectively used to bring a whole range of benefits to your pupils.
Strengthening your brand
Your school is unique, and our playground markings can emphasise the unique qualities that make your school so great. We can create markings and characters of any kind, meaning that we can use characters that you may already have on the walls of your classrooms, such as knights, princes and princesses, trees and the sun. This helps to strengthen your school’s corporate brand, and as our characters are all beautifully crafted and bright and cheery they are also sure to impress visitors to your school, as well as parents of prospective pupils.
Our primary school years are a time for learning, but they’re also a time for fun, as the social skills that we learn through play in these formative years can prove immensely important in later life. Children respond best to bold, vibrant colours, so they are much more likely to have fun in a playground that’s full of colourful illustrative markings, which can help inspire confidence and encourage interaction with classmates.
Spreading a message
Just because a playground can be filled with fun and laughter doesn’t mean that it can’t convey a serious message as well, and our playground markings can help you promote messages that are of great importance. Markings such as ‘welcome’ and ‘friend zone’ can help children realise the importance of playing fairly and in an inclusive manner, and because the messages are so bold and bright on the playground floor, they easily catch the eye and mind of all who see them. There are also ‘quiet zone’ markings, which can be an ideal way to encourage mindfulness.
Many of the characters available in our colourful range of playground markings can be tied to lessons taking place within your classrooms; for example, we have a range of dinosaurs, and many creatures from the natural world including bees, whales, sharks and hedgehogs. We also install thermoplastic board games and mazes on playground floors, which are a great way to encourage strategic thinking, as well as helping to improve language and numeracy skills among nursery and primary age pupils.
Our philosophy at Uniplay is “to see children of all abilities develop essential skills through play” and we specialise in the design and installation of thermoplastic playground markings, giving playgrounds colour and creativity to enhance play, fitness and fun. You can choose your favourites from our extensive range of categories, or give one of our friendly experts a call on 0333 321 6695 if you have any questions, or need any advice. We’re always happy to help!
