Our range of outdoor play equipment is designed to encourage imaginative play, creativity and innovative thinking. Through imaginative play, basic skills are promoted as youngsters explore, learn, connect to and act out different experiences. This type of role play is important for children and is a vital part of their early development. Play equipment manufactured by Hand Made Places is designed to maximise the play value for children, creating a make-believe environment that’s also full of action and adventure and sensory activities.
Our extensive range of outdoor timber play equipment offers fantastic opportunities for pretend play whether it be in a Shelter, aboard a Boat or around our Sculptures and Totems.
Imaginative play encourages problem solving and cognitive thinking skills. Engagement with other children aids language and communication ability, decision making and cooperation.
Through the installation of playground equipment for imaginative play, early social and emotional skills are honed as children negotiate, take turns and share as part of their own games.
Imaginative play supports traditional learning too. It builds a connection between spoken and written language, preparing little ones for reading and writing as they understand the concept of stories and plays.
It helps children to interpret their feelings and be conscious of their behaviour and reactions. At Hand Made Places we design, manufacture and install a large range of playground equipment which can encourage imaginative play. Our products include Play Units, Bridges, Castles, Play Houses, Cars, Trains and Tractors and Mini Micro World Tables. We offer a free consultation where an experienced playground expert can discuss your ideas and aspirations and build a play area to captivate young minds. Together we work with our clients to develop playgrounds which encourage inclusive, imaginative play among children of all ages and abilities.
