Create a new world using play units…
Traditional Play Units are a great way to encourage play amongst children, no matter what age! And though the traditional designs can provide hours of fun, by using one of our interestingly designed play units to create an entire new world you can spark hours of both fun and activity!
At Hand Made Places we have plenty of play units which can be used in this way, however one of our personal favourites is the sea themed play areas!
An underwater adventure!
You can create a whole underwater adventure with ship themed Play Units, Play Sculptures and Surfacing Options.
By placing the Newquay Pirate Ship in any playground will allow children to improve muscle flexibility, bone strength and fitness outlooks all whilst engaging in play!
Children can get their full amount of exercise using this play unit, as it provides a myriad of health benefits.
You can increase the fun factor by turning this unit into a full underwater adventure by adding the Shark, Octopus and Sea Monster play sculptures. This will spur the imagination.
Newquay Pirate Ship – Nautical Themed Play Area.
You can also improve the physical element by playing some fun nautical themed games too!
There is a great game which you can play with this equipment called ‘Pirates’ –
Pirates Warm up Game – Newquay Pirate Ship.
In this game a small group of pupils will need to line up in front of the teacher.
The teacher will then call out a set of instructions to encourage the pupils to get moving.
The commands include:
‘Port’, ‘Starboard’ or ‘Stern’ – When the pupils here these commands they should move to either the left, the right or the back of the teacher. (You can use the ‘boat’ play unit for this too)
Then when the teacher calls ‘Climb the rigging’ children should attempt to get to higher ground, and when the teacher shouts ‘Hit the deck’ children should attempt to get as low as they can.
This is a great inventive way to get the most activity out of children who are using this ‘sea’ themed play equipment.
