11 Jun Why Nature Play in Schools?
Nature play integrates exciting play with learning opportunities, using sustainably sourced natural timber logs. Many Queensland schools utilise nature play in their outdoor learning spaces. Outdoor play, specifically nature play, can have many benefits for school-aged children. It stimulates problem-solving, creativity and social and emotional skills. It also promotes physical play, which in turn decreases the risks of obesity and unhealthy lifestyles.
Due to the flexibility with design, there are endless possibilities that nature play can cover, including:
- ABC / 123 log steppers
- Playground equipment
- Balance beams
- Teepees / totem poles
- Log bridges
- Log ladders
- Musical instruments
- Obstacle courses
- Sensory play
- Plus much more, it’s up to your imagination!
