Creating an Engaging and Fun Playground for Your Pupils During the Summer Months

As the temperatures rise, both pupils and teachers look forward to spending more time outside. Children of all ages across the UK will be looking forward to spending more time on the playground playing with their peers and exploring new ideas through play.

With our help, you can create an engaging and fun playground that your pupils will enjoy in summer and throughout the year. At UniPlay, we specialise in creating playgrounds that inspire play, socialisation, and development.

While warmer weather means spending more time outside, it is also the perfect time to help children build friendships, increase physical activity to reduce the risk of childhood obesity, and build resilience.

How To Create an Engaging and Fun Playground For Your Pupils During The Summer

New Markings

One of the easiest ways to create an engaging and fun playground is by installing new markings. New playground markings breathe new life into an otherwise dull playground and encourage children to venture outside.

At UniPlay, we specialise in the installation of thermoplastic playground markings that come in a variety of vibrant colours and exciting designs. Our markings are durable and hard-wearing which makes them ideal for use by children of all ages.

UniPlay thermoplastic markings are also UV-resistant so they won’t wear off or fade with repeated use or exposure to the sun.

Repair and Replace Old or Worn-Out Markings

Another way to keep your pupils engaged on the playground during summer is to repair and replace old or worn-out markings. At UniPlay, we specialise in the repair and replacement of old thermoplastic markings.

We can also help with the removal of old and faded paint markings as part of the installation of new thermoplastic markings.

Create Different Play Zones

Creating play zones is another excellent method of helping pupils stay engaged on the playground during summer. We can help you plan your playground and install different play zones that create contrast between high energy areas and calmer spaces.

By creating different play zones, pupils have a larger scope of adventure and exploration which helps them push boundaries or step away from their comfort zones. It also gives them control over their play time and allows children to form friendship bonds over shared zones.

Investing in Bespoke Playground Marking Games, Sports, and Patterns

If your playground already has traditional games and sports markings, investing in bespoke markings could be just the thing to give it a new look. At UniPlay, we can help you create unique playground markings by incorporating your school themes and values.

Our in-house team of graphic designers can also work hand-in-hand with your pupils to create markings with their input. When children participate in the design of the new playground markings, it gives them a sense of ownership over the playground keeping them engaged all summer.

Contact UniPlay For Your Summer Playground Project

We have worked with parents and teachers across the UK to design playgrounds that are ideal for use year-round. As summer approaches, this is the perfect time to revamp your playground and keep the children more engaged in physical activities.

We offer a wide catalogue of designs to choose from as well as the option to create bespoke markings unique to your school with the help of our in-house design team. Our DBS-checked team offers site visits across the country to help you plan the playground and make suggestions to improve already existing markings.

If you are unsure how to keep your pupils more engaged on the playground during summer, reach out to us to talk to one of our team members. We also offer free quotes to help you plan your budget for upcoming projects.
