Wow, Stay, and Develop with a Space Themed Playground
WOW: To be an astronaut, one has got to be in great shape. The Space Travel theme calls upon children to come and be physical by spinning on the planets, climbing on the Galaxy structure and meteor, jumping from star to star, doing somersaults on the somersault bars, or getting into the seats before take-off from Earth. Who does not want to be an astronaut?
STAY: The many different activities in this design will make, e.g., a schoolyard an active place to play. Not only can it get many children active at the same time, but the many social and physical challenges will also keep them active for a long time.
DEVELOP: Physical play is important for developing a good sense of balance, muscle strength, coordination skills, and good health. Yes, the benefits of physical play are many – active children are better prepared to absorb learning and will be able to concentrate better after having burned off a ton of energy. The space travel theme is a good way to learn about space, the physics of space, gravity, etc. As the majority of play takes place at ground level, or close to ground level, children with special needs can be part of the play.
