5 top playground games for kids 

At UniPlay we are often asked for inspiration and ideas on the best playground games for kids which will keep them engaged throughout breaktimes. To help you create the ideal playground experience for your pupils we have rounded up our top 5 playground games:

  1. Traditional playground games

Traditional playground games continue to be the most popular playground games for children. Games such as hopscotch, snakes and ladders and mile tracks are the most sought-after playground markings by our customers.

  1. Math playground markings

Number grids and math playground markings provide a fun and creative game for pupils of all ages. These markings are available in a range of different colour schemes and themes and are ideal as part of an overarching playground marking project.

  1. Mile tracks

Playground games for kids should encourage activity and exercise. Our mile tracks allow pupils to meet their recommended exercise in a fun and creative way, working with other pupils or alone.

  1. Courts and sports areas

Traditional team sports such as netball, football and basketball are a perfect way to engage a large group of pupils during the breaktimes. Having the right markings in place for sports and courts areas is essential to help pupils continually participate in games.

  1. Letter games

Encouraging pupils to continue their learning from the classroom can be done with creative letter games and traditional markings. Our letter game markings help pupils to stay engaged throughout break times, working together to solve puzzles and problems.
