Barn

The Barn with its farm themed illustrations is a great attractor of dramatic and fun physical play for all younger children. The variety of manipulative and fun physical activities on elevated and ground level support dramatic play scenarios. Varied climb, crawl, sway and slide activities attract hugely and ensure physical activity that trains important motor skills and major muscles. Inclined net and stair accesses make for a secure, yet fun climb up. This trains cross-coordination, which builds body confidence and ultimately stimulates the cross-modal perception. This supports for instance reading skills. The slide and double slide vary the choice of going down. And on ground level, around and under the platform, a nice desk and hammock makes an attractive gathering point, supporting children’s social-emotional skills. Dramatic play is the favorite play type for younger children. In the case of the Barn, storytelling themes of house, farm and production can be put to play, again and again.
