The Magic of Play

The Magic of Play

1. Interaction & Social Development

Play helps children grow and develop while having fun!

When children are on the playground together, they may add to each other’s ideas, agree on a set of rules, and take on specific roles as part of their game. This type of play can aid in developing social skills by encouraging children to engage and interact with one another.

2. Exercise & Physical Activity

Play encourages children to exercise and stay active while developing physical strength.

Playing on slides and climbers helps to develop balance, strength and agility skills. Moving from one piece of playground equipment to another develops cardiovascular strength and improves overall physical health and well-being. Playing during early childhood can also help children to view exercise as fun, and encourage them to stay active later in life.

3. Curiosity & Sensory Development

Playing on the playground helps foster curiosity, feeds imaginations and aids in sensory development.

For younger children, touching textured surfaces, listening to new sounds, and seeing bright colors encourage them to explore their world with their senses and recognize shapes and colors. For older children, activity panels can help with the recognition of numbers, shapes and letters.
