Playground Markings

Playground markings are engaging designs that transform ordinary playgrounds into vibrant, interactive learning spaces, which support curriculum goals, promote physical activity, and foster social skills among children.

Perfect for outdoor playgrounds within schools and nurseries, playground markings are a simple, cost-effective, and impactful addition to any school.

Playground Markings

As children skip over numbers, negotiate maze-like trails, or hop through a game of Twister, these ground designs serve to give structured fun as well as interactive learning spaces.

Explore our extensive range of designs, including simple shapes and numeracy designs, mazes, sports courts and educational games.

At AMV Playgrounds, we have dedicated over 30 years to creating playground equipment that exceeds expectations, delivering the best possible return on your investment. Playground markings are a big part of our offering, and not only help headteachers design and choose suitable markings, but also take care of installation.

Benefits of playground markings

Playground markings are an important investment for headteachers and purchasing managers in the health, development, and well-being of children.

One such benefit is they foster cognitive growth in children. By incorporating games that require counting, spelling, or problem-solving, children can develop essential cognitive skills in an engaging and enjoyable way.

A simple number grid, such as our Counting Ladybirds markings, can teach children about sequences and patterns, while our Giant Chessboard Solid can enhance strategic thinking and planning abilities. These activities stimulate brain development, improving memory, concentration, and analytical skills.

Playground markings also make learning fun! By transforming traditional classroom subjects into interactive outdoor activities, children are more likely to engage with educational content. For example, our Phonic Frog markings is a fun and involving way for children to grasp the notion of phonics.

Another benefit playground markings bring to schools and nurseries is they encourage physical activity, helping to improve the health of children.

Activities such as hopscotch, mazes, and sports courts or MUGAs get children moving, helping them to burn off energy and stay fit. And they not only help with children’s fitness, but they also help children to develop their motor skills and coordination.

For example, following a road track marking requires children to steer and balance, enhancing their hand-eye coordination and spatial awareness. These skills are not only vital for physical development but also for performing everyday tasks effectively.

The final benefit of playground markings includes improving social skills, self-esteem and teamwork among children. Games that require multiple participants, such as hopscotch, Snakes and Ladders, and What’s the Time Mr Wolf, encourage children to communicate, collaborate, and share turns. These interactions are crucial for developing social competence and building positive relationships.
