Make Your Playground More Fun

by Rodney Hogan on January 28, 2015

If kids have lost interest in your school’s playground, it may be time to reevaluate its fun factor.  Figuring out whether children are enjoying themselves can be as simple as watching them.

Does your playground have room for fantasy — does it offer kids a way to play that’s unscripted, or is the equipment used in only a few ways?  Does it offer the kind of play where they can come up with their own possibilities rather than have it dictated to them.

Opportunity also lies in understanding that children relish challenges and options–and that they grow bored without them.

Injecting more fun to your playground doesn’t have to be expensive it might just mean proving a better environment for what you have.
