There are number of convincing reasons why playground equipment plans are all worth your effort. What are these playground equipment plans in the first place? On what motivation are you doing these? What are the benefits you can get out of it? Are there any risk? Generally, we plan because we wanted to have a clear sense of direction to the activities we are involved with. Second, planning provides an opportunity for alternative actions. Lastly, we gain control over things because we assured that we know what we are doing.
Designs for playground are often utilized in outdoor play. We create playground equipment plans because we believed in the numerous benefits it can bring us and our children. It is important that children play because this helped improve physical, sensory development at the same time reduce incident rate of obesity, heart disease, hypertension, diabetes and arteriosclerosis. All the five senses of touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing are being stimulated during play. Children can exercise and develop physical strength and coordination. With this they will be able to master motor skills like running, leaping, jumping and climbing. Being exposed to the real world, they are able to gain good values as being cooperative, responsible and become environment conscious as well.
Playground equipment plans are cautiously designed to ensure that there is adequate furnished data and facts to decide whether or not projects can be materialized. Included in planning are detailed instructions either in text document form, sceptical designs, videos, pictures or drawings. One of the main issues to consider is the challenge of providing fun to the kids at the same time providing them safety. It is important to consider the architectural space and the end user of the playground. The strategic location of the facility must be noted also taking into account where buses, bikes and other vehicles may pass to ensure safety among children playing.
Answering questions like, can I ensure safety even if there is no direct supervision among children playing? How many anticipated children can be accommodated? A separate area and equipment type for different age group must be provided. Children may engage in different playing activities thus playground must be designed in varieties. Zoning is very important for effective playground equipment plans. Activity zoning is classified into three namely quiet zones, intermediate zones and noisy zones. Under these three classifications are subcategories. For quiet zones we have transitional, water play, sand play, dramatic play, comfort or social and service zone. Intermediate zones subcategories include swing and hard surface zone. Gross motor play, big loose parts play and natural zones for the noisy class.
