Playground Markings

Published: October 4, 2018

Traditionally, playground games have always been an integral part of childhood leisure time, which is not surprising given the fact that children can spend up to 21% of their time at school
in the playground. As well as offering children an opportunity to be physically active during the day, games played during break time also provide children with a vehicle for social
interaction and a platform for creativity.

Current physical activity guidelines recommend that young people should participate in physical activity that is developmentally appropriate, enjoyable, and of at least moderate intensity for one hour per day. Young people who currently do little activity should participate in physical activity of at least moderate intensity for at least half an hour per day. At least twice a week, some of these activities should help to enhance and maintain muscular strength and flexibility, and bone health.

Playground Markings and Games are a great way to increase the level of school based physical activity and play as well as increasing the number of children who are active during school time.
