If you work in education and have had the job of choosing new playground markings for your school, you’ll be aware that there are a lot of different options out there.
To make the process a bit easier, we’ve chosen the top 5 playground markings that we install regularly. If you are in need of any extra inspiration, all you have to do is take a look at our new catalogue. Here, you’ll be able to peruse our whole spectrum of markings – and perhaps it will inspire you to come up with your own bespoke design!
For now though, let’s take a look at our bestsellers and see if any of these firm favourites inspire you.
1. Exercise Tracks
When it comes to exercise tracks, most schools tend to choose a basic outline and then add in their own ideas as to how they want it to look. For instance, the size of the playground comes into the equation here. Why not allow some of your school children to take a look at the example in our catalogue so they can see what they like/don’t like? That way, it can be easy to create something unique and that the kids will love with minimal effort on your part!
If you’re looking for a way to make the most out of your space, a multi-court is a really useful addition to your playground. It’s basically a netball court and football court combined – so you can get two for the price of one, as well as saving some space!
If you keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages, you may have caught the article we shared about the development benefits of the classic game for children. As well as being a great form of simple entertainment, it helps with things such as co-ordination and self esteem – so you know that they will be getting a lot out of it. Plus, we’ve got a whole host of variations that you can have. Think dragon hopscotch, spaceship hopscotch, daisy hopscotch… A traditional playground game with a modern update!
4. Target Rings
These are simple, but effective. Target rings are a great way to improve skill and dexterity, and come at a very reasonable price. Plus, once they have been installed, all you need are some beanbags or counters and you’re good to go – simple, but fun!
5. Piggy in the Middle
You’d be hard-pressed to find someone that didn’t love playing this as a child! Another simple classic with a fresh take. Our design means that it doesn’t just have to be a three-player game – our version means that you can get everyone involved! Sometimes the traditional games are the best.
