29 Reasons Why Play is So Important During Times of Crisis and Stress

What Are Some Signs of Stress in Children?Indoor play equipment

Some of the signs of stress in children are:

  • Decreased appetite or changes in eating habits
  • Headache
  • New or repetitive bedwetting
  • Frequent nightmares
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Upset stomach or gastrointestinal pain
  • Mood swings or acting out
  • New anxious habits such as thumb-sucking, nose-picking, or hair-twirling
  • Drastic changes in academic performance
  • Bullying or defying authority

 

It’s important to recognize the signs of toxic stress in children so it can be managed in a healthy and productive way, such as play therapy, spending quality time together as a family, or simply giving children the time and space they need to play in their own way.

How Does Stress Affect Child Development?

Long-term stress, or toxic stress, can affect both behavior and physical health. When a situation is perceived as challenging or scary, the body responds with chemical reactions that affect heart rate, blood pressure, and metabolism. If these adjustments are temporary, they help us adapt or survive. However, if the stress response happens too frequently or lasts too long, it can lead to lifelong chronic disease. As children’s bodies and minds are still growing, high levels of stress early on have been linked to impaired behavioral, emotional, and physical development and well-being.

How Can Play and Play Therapy Help Children During Times of Crisis?

Play and play therapy help children cope with stress by giving them a safe outlet to experience and work through complicated, overwhelming emotions. Play can help children express feelings that they may not fully understand. This infographic provides 29 reasons why play is so important during times of crisis, stress, and change. During life-altering crises like the pandemic coronavirus, children and adults can find a sense of sanctuary and normalcy by playing, laughing, and staying active.

 

  1. “Children at play are insulated from the alarming world around them. Play is a sanctuary of safety.” — Dr. Gordon Neufeld
  2. “Play is children’s language. They act out pretend scenarios as a way to express concerns, ask questions, and, crucially, reshape a narrative. In a pretend scenario, children are driving the plot and can change the outcome of a scary situation or try out different solutions to a problem.” — Kate Cray
  3. “Play is critical for stress relief, as it allows kids to create fantasies that help them cope with difficult situations.” — Melinda Wenner
  4. “During times of crisis, play has a significant therapeutic role helping children recover a sense of normality and joy.” — International Play Association
  5. “As children and adults get absorbed in the fun of playing, their spirits rise, their happy-meter goes up, and they experience an exhilaration that positively impacts both physical and emotional health.” — Chicago Children’s Museum
  6. Sharing laughter and fun fosters empathy, trust, compassion, and intimacy with others. Taking time to reconnect with family and loved ones can make the world feel more safe even when times are uncertain.
  7. Recent research supports that laughter is a powerful, easy way to boost mood and emotional well-being. It stimulates organs with oxygen and eases stress hormone levels.
  8. “Playing gives children a taste of being in control, of having some agency in their everyday lives. Playing gives them space and time to reconcile themselves to — and make sense of — an uncertain world.” — Tim Gill and Penny Wilson
  9. “Play is how we are made, how we develop and adjust to change.” — Stuart Brown, M.D.
  10. For all ages, playing and having fun can trigger the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. This promotes an overall sense of well-being and peace.
  11. Studies show that a decline in free play and pretend play correlates with a decline in empathy. Play helps children develop patience and understanding, connecting them with the humanity in others.
  12. Play often involves movement. Being active can help boost the immune system! However, it is important to build up intensity because overdoing it can suppress immune function.
  13. Completing puzzles and other brain-engaging games can help prevent memory problems and keep your mind occupied in a healthy way.
  14. “Play is an important part of emotional development. It’s associated with emotional resilience, high self-confidence, and reduced anxiety and has been shown to relieve emotional distress around trauma.” — Kimmie Fink
  15. Being active relieves tension, quiets restless thoughts, creates a sense of focus and achievement, and improves sleep.
  16. “Nature is often overlooked as a healing balm for the emotional hardships in a child’s life.” — Richard Louv
  17. “Play is training for the unexpected.” — Marc Bekoff
  18. “As children absorb scary and confusing news, many turn to play seeking understanding and respite.” — Kate Cray
  19. Chronic stress is toxic, especially to developing brains. Outdoor play provides several remedies; being immersed in nature is scientifically proven to alleviate stress, and playtime encourages a healthy release of bottled-up emotions.
  20. “It energizes and enlivens us. It eases our burdens. It renews our natural sense of optimism and opens us up to new possibilities.” — Stuart Brown, M.D.
  21. Play outside (safely and responsibly)! A study by Mind found that 95% of interview participants stated that their mood improved after spending time in nature.
  22. “Playing has a significant therapeutic and rehabilitative role in helping children recover a sense of normality and joy after their experience of loss, dislocation, and trauma.” — International Play Association
  23. “If children feel safe, they can take risks, ask questions, make mistakes, learn to trust, share their feelings, and grow.” — Alfie Kohn
  24. “Your physical experience will always influence your emotional experience, and exercise is the magical elixir of life.” — Gretchen Rubin
  25. “It energizes and enlivens us. It eases our burdens. It renews our natural sense of optimism and opens up new possibilities.” — Stuart Brown
  26. “A moving child is a learning child.” — Gill Gonnell and Cheryl McCarthy
  27. “Play keeps us vital and alive. It gives us an enthusiasm for life that is irreplaceable. Without it, life just doesn’t taste good.” — Lucia Capacchione
  28. “To play is to lose yourself. To play is also to find yourself. To play is to connect, too. To play is to reach out. And to reach out is to reach for resilience. And to reach out for resilience is to find the strength of understanding that we’re all in this together.” — Scott G. Eberle Ph.D.
  29. “All children need time and space for free play every day, now possibly more than ever.” — Helen Dodd and Tim Gill

How Much Does it Cost to Start an Indoor Playground?

How Much Does it Cost to Start an Indoor Playground?

 

If you’ve ever dealt with kids, then you know they care very little about the troubles of the world. Every kid just wants a nice, warm bed, great food, and a whole lot of fun. And if you know anything about having a whole lot of fun as a kid, you already know, there is no better place for kids to have all the fun they want than playgrounds. This explains why playgrounds are always buzzing. So, starting a playground will always be a great idea.

Easy as it is looks, starting a playground is no child’s play. You’ve got to get some things right. One of the most important things you have to do is plan towards the expenses that starting an indoor playground entails.

In starting an indoor playground, the cost depends on a few things. Like, the size of the playground you’ve got in mind, the quality of the playground equipment you’ve plans to buy, the interior designs for the playground site, and a couple of other things. Why all these seem difficult, the good news is, unless you are a big business, or you have intentions to build a Neverland style playground, you don’t need millions to start up a playground. With a few thousand bucks, you are sure good to go.

In the rest of this article, we talk about indoor playgrounds and just how much money you need to start one. With specific details, we also give a clear insight into the various things you might need to spend a couple of bucks on before getting your playground started

1. Confirming the Scale of Your Indoor Playground

Starting out an indoor playground is cool. You get to experience kids at their happiest and make a lot of money (if it’s a business venture). But before you start, you’ve got to know just how big you want your playground to be. The larger the scale of the playground, the more money that will be expended in starting.

The size of the playground you’ve got in mind will also affect how big your playground project will be, and the more kids you plan for, the more preparation must be made in increasing the capacity of the playground arena to cater to the kids.

While it’s important to cater to the expected capacity of kids for your playground, making enough preparations for the expected age groups is also very important. In confirming the scale of your indoor playground, standard preparations must be made for the different age groups of kids that will utilize the arena. Children who use playgrounds vary from 6 to 23 months, 2 to 5 years, and 5 to 12 years. Getting to know the age group you intend to start the indoor playground will help plan better how best to start your indoor playground.

2. Playground Rentals

If you’ve ever been in search of a space, either for an office, or a site, or even a whole building, you must know that getting a budget-friendly space that your taste might be quite difficult, So, you’ve got to brace up for your search of the perfect playground space.

Playground warehouses are rented in square meters or foot. So, the cost of the rent will depend on the size of the arena that will house the playground. The bigger the playground, the bigger the size of the space. On average, a square foot goes for about $11/12, depending on the area. So, if you’ve got plans of renting a 2,200 sq ft workspace which is equivalent to about 200 sq m, you should be looking to spend about $25,000 per year. Working with this exact calculation, your monthly rent for space could be about $2,108. However, because site value varies, prices also vary. A square foot could also go for as high as $17 or 23$. Because space for rentals lasts for a year, in starting your indoor playground, having a $25,000 check for space rentals sounds like a good idea. Once you’ve got this out of the way, spending a few thousand bucks will help set up the playground with the other important amenities.

3. Attractions Cost

Playgrounds are fun places. So, they’ve got to look attractive and beautiful. Great aesthetics add to the value of the playground. So, you’ve just got to take your designs seriously. As with everything, great designs seem expensive. But if you consider the value, it’s sure worth it. Interior designers are responsible for this, and the price of the designs varies on factors that include the level of the playground and the elements that will eventually go into designing the equipment and playground arena.

4. Shipping Cost

Who creates an indoor playground without the necessary equipment? No one, right? So, before you get your playground up and running, you have to first get the structures in place. Labeling a space that doesn’t have regular playground bars and swings will be a funny movie since the kids can’t have fun in empty spaces.

Buying them is not the main problem, but in acquiring them, some of the structures can be very heavy, and as such, require freight services to transport them from the production company to the playground. This could be a little bit expensive, but it is essential. The weight of the play structure will, of course, influence the cost to be paid to the freight services. So, the shipping cost might vary depending on how large the products are and the number of structures that will be gotten. Shipping from the United States to countries around Europe and North and Central America varies from as low as $625 to about $1,752 for 40hq container shipping. These rates vary from cities even in countries and from different parts of the world. So, if you are looking to ship from Australia to the United Kingdom, shipping costs can be extremely high. As high as $4,518. So, in starting that indoor playground, you have to consider the expenses of shipping from other countries and delivery even from companies in your country to your doorstep or the playground arena.

These shipping costs also vary from different companies, and they change all the time depending on a lot of reasons. So, it’s very important to cross-check from time to time to avoid making budgets that will end up being below the expected market range.

5. Installation Cost

In opening an indoor playground, installing playground equipment is just as important as renting a space, or designing the space. You may ask, why? It’s because you can’t just rent out a site, buy the necessary equipment, and decide to have it uninstalled, lying wastefully on the site. Installation is always a huge part of starting a playground. In fact, in an average playground budget, installation takes about 27%. The technicians who will fix the structures will have to be paid, and their services are known to be quite a lot. This sure explains why the installation cost takes a whole lot. Most homeowners who have plans of installing a mini playground might be tempted to use the DIY approach. If you’ve got plans for that, you should have a re-think. Professionals technicians offer services that are difficult to match by everyday people, and having them install the sets will even help guarantee your kids’ safety. If you are worried about the cost, you need to think about safety first.

Moreover, the price of each service provider ranges depending on how massive the project is because it will determine the hours technicians will put in to deliver, and subsequently, the price. Installation prices range from a minimum cost of $75 to a maximum cost of about $12,000. This puts the average at about $361 to $508, once again depending on the side of the job that needs to be done. The installation will also cover the budget of the additional costs that need to be expended on the playground space, Additional costs that will include dents or structural issues with the arena intended to be used.

Installation costs will also cover miscellaneous expenses that involve the transportation of the technicians that will be involved with carrying out the structure. In situations where the technicians leave in other areas, the installation cost will cover the expenses.

In starting an indoor playground, certain costs have to be expended. These costs cut across a very wide area of needed items. If you are looking to start a playground, you surely have to get these expenses sorted.

CONCLUSION

Generally, the costs of starting an indoor playground depend on a few factors. However, the costs could largely vary from $8000 to $70,000 due to the size of the playground, especially if it’s a commercial play space. If, on the other hand, it’s private, the cost might most times be considerably low, and some of the costs factored in this article will not be necessary. Regardless, starting an indoor playground involves many times, and the cost is just a tiny part. So, with the right mindset, idea, and a couple of thousand bucks, you are sure good to go.

Why Is Soft Play Important?

Soft play equipment has a wealth of benefits for the children using the equipment and their parents. The most documented benefits of soft play equipment are that it helps to develop motor skills and enhances fundamental cognitive skills.

Children learn to move in a safe environment with a greatly mitigated risk of injury due to the softness of the equipment, overcoming small-scale problems and motor tasks. Moreover, users enhance their independent thinking, problem-solving and their cooperation with others when playing with other children.

Alongside these exceptional benefits, children and their wider families can experience lesser-known benefits of soft play equipment. It prepares them for an active lifestyle, provides family leisure time away from electronic devices and provides mental health benefits to parents and children. Any parent feeling isolated can attend soft play centres and take advantage of supervised facilities (which Play England strongly recommends), while also socialising with other parents and friends.

Last but not least, even children experience mental health benefits from soft play as it becomes a therapeutic exercise that can reduce their own stresses and anxiety. Overall, soft play equipment is important for so many reasons!

What Are the Benefits of Using Soft Play in Nurseries?

Soft play can provide lots of physical and cognitive benefits. Unfortunately, not every child has ongoing and frequent access to soft play because of their location (no commercial soft play venues nearby) or because the household cannot afford regular trips to their local soft play centre. If soft play equipment is present at the child’s nursery, it breaks down barriers of access to these fantastic play spaces, simultaneously providing children with many health and developmental benefits.

How Can Soft Play and Indoor Playgrounds Improve Childhood Learning?

Soft play centres and indoor play equipment provide mental stimulus to children. These items and obstacles present each child with a series of challenges that must be overcome with critical and creative thinking, problem-solving and physical activity.

INDOOR PLAYGROUNDS

What Is an Indoor Playground?

Indoor playgrounds have been around since the 1980s. They are commercial indoor play structures that help children to stay active and develop fundamental motor skills while having fun. The indoor play equipment will include different types of challenges, such as climbing ropes, ball pools, slides, tunnels, balancing equipment and much more.

Most indoor playground structures are designed in a specific theme. For example, House of Play can create bespoke designs in the form of pirate ships, castles, army tanks, and much more. We have even recreated London with Big Ben and iconic red telephone boxes. We’ll design and manufacture any theme you desire and ensure it fits within your space seamlessly.

There are more indoor playgrounds popping up exclusively for adults. The big kids can stay fit have fun in trampoline parks, Parkour venues and virtual reality zones.

What Are the Benefits of Indoor Playgrounds?

Indoor playgrounds get children exploring and moving. They might not realise it because of all the fun, but they will be improving their cardiovascular endurance and refining key motor skills. But the benefits of indoor playgrounds aren’t just physical. Overcoming obstacles with other children will develop cognitive skills and social skills, such as teamwork and even empathy.

We offer ongoing maintenance packages and detailed operational support, such as staff training.

How Can Indoor Playgrounds Decrease Childhood Obesity?

The answer to this question is two-fold. First, indoor playgrounds demand children to be active. They must take on the challenges of obstacle courses and individual pieces of equipment by running, jumping, climbing, swinging, carrying and lots more compound movements. Scientific research has found that children who enjoy playa activities like these for at least 37 minutes each day can reduce their BMI and prevent the likelihood of childhood obesity.

The second way that indoor play decreases childhood obesity is by promoting and encouraging physical activity. By showing children that moving around is fun and enjoyable encourages them to partake in other types of physical activity. This could be on the playground with friends or specific sports clubs, which further safeguards against children from health issues.

 

SENSORY EQUIPMENT

What Is Needed for a Sensory Room?

The first thing you need to create a sensory room is space. Despite what the name suggests, sensory rooms come in all sizes from small zones inside a room to full rooms. However, it is better if you can make your sensory room a separated space to avoid outside interference and noises, especially if you want to harness their therapeutic benefits.

You may require softer padding and safety equipment to ensure the wellbeing of users. This is not always necessary depending on the room and its purpose, but it is certainly necessary if some groups will be using the sensory space, such as children with Dyspraxia.

And, of course, you will need sensory equipment to create your sensory room. Sensory equipment comes in different shapes, colours and sizes (quite literally!) and there are plenty of options to choose from that can be tailored to your needs. House of Play has one of the largest selections of sensory room equipment in the UK – and we manufacture our equipment ourselves!

What Is Sensory Equipment?

Sensory equipment is a specialised type of play equipment that is incorporated into sensory rooms. The equipment is designed and manufactured with the assistance of sensory experts to ensure the equipment can promote safe sensory activation among young children and disabled groups.

But sensory equipment is a broad term and there are many categories of sensory play equipment. House of Play stocks bespoke sensory play items by category to make it easier for you to find what you need.

Below are the popular sensory play equipment categories (note, some products can overlap between two or more categories):

  • Sensory lighting
  • Interactive sensory equipment
  • Tactile stimulation products
  • Early years sensory equipment
  • Audio sensory equipment
  • Visual sensory products

The sensory equipment you choose should be tailored to the intended users of the sensory room. For example, if you made a sensory room primarily for therapeutic reasons, you would choose calmer lighting and less interactive products.

When sensory room equipment is put together it can create plenty of colours and shapes – but there is always a method to the madness. For help designing a sensory room with the best sensory equipment for your needs, speak with House of Play.

What Skills Does a Sensory Room Develop?

Sensory rooms have been scientifically proven to provide therapeutic benefits to users. They afford safe opportunities for children to feel confident in playing and exploring their senses. This is especially true for children with disabilities who may have experienced anxiety or even pain outside of a sensory room.

But sensory rooms can offer even more. They provide an opportunity for all children to enhance their cognitive development and specific skills.

Some sensory room equipment encourages movement from users. Products like mirrors, lighting bubble tubes, some audio sensory items and interactive panels all get children up and moving around in a safe space. This helps to develop their motor skills at an early age. Many facilities that assist children with Dyspraxia use sensory rooms for this reason. These children can learn to explore movement patterns in a calming environment that is 100% safe.

And it doesn’t end there! Using the sensory play equipment on their own can promote independent thinking, problem solving and creativity. When using the sensory room with others, it can develop their cooperation to work on tasks or play together with other children. There are so many skills that children can start to develop in a sensory room.

What Are Multi-Sensory Rooms?

Multi-sensory rooms were thought up by the Dutch in the 1970s. They were – and still are – rooms that include play equipment designed to encourage safe use of users’ senses. These spaces are typically used by children with Autism or Dyspraxia and adults who have dementia. Although any child can benefit from experiences inside a multi-sensory room.

A multi-sensory room is usually a colourful place with sensory equipment that promote activation of the senses by moving around in different ways, playing, socialising, exploring equipment, and problem-solving on their own or with others.

When a child has a sensory disability, they may find that using their senses in everyday life causes them stress and pain. The multi-sensory room helps overcome these difficulties by making sensory exploration safe, therapeutic and instilling confidence. These positive experiences can then transfer outside of the multi-sensory room for wider benefits.

You may hear other names for multi-sensory rooms, such as sensory rooms, sensory rich environments (although they are not 100% the same) and multisensory environments.

What Is a Sensory Rich Environment?

A sensory rich environment is a term used to describe any space or place that engages the senses more than usual. Some examples of sensory rich environments include a garden or flowers with strong aromas, a mirror maze at your local fairground or a firework display.

These environments include objects or events that engage our senses more than normal in everyday environments. The strong smell of the roses, the sight of funny mirrors and the sights and sounds of fireworks will all heighten the respective senses activated more than usual.

Some people use the term ‘sensory rich environment’ to describe a multi-sensory room too. The sensory room is a space where senses are purposefully heightened and can also provide a therapeutic benefit to its users.

It should be noted that all sensory rooms are fantastic for children with sensory disorders and ASD, whereas other sensory rich environments may not be. For example, a child with ASD can feel safe, comfortable and in control in a sensory room, which they might not when watching a firework display or in a mirror maze.

What Is a Multisensory Environment?

A multisensory environment is a name given to a dedicated space that activates the senses. The name is usually used interchangeably with sensory rooms or multi-sensory room. If you attend a school or care facility, you might find that the workers at the venue will call their sensory room a multisensory environment. They are almost always the same thing.

The multisensory environment will be designed and made with sensory products and sensory play equipment for children. It will provide the same benefits to its users, such as mental health benefits and cognitive development.

If you are looking for a local facility that has a sensory room and are not finding anything online, try searching for a multisensory environment instead. You may find something near you.

Before you begin reading our advise on how to start an indoor play equipment centre, please take the time to view this you tube video which runs for approximately 9 minutes about a UK lady who owns and runs an extremely successful indoor play centre who may help you in your business adventure.

The video above is a good insight on how successful you can be using indoor play equipment to service kids but also understanding that the play equipment itself is about 50% of the service in running a play centre. Good coffee, good service and great meals are what draws the parents back time after time. Also, cleanliness of the play centre’s is a must do role to ensure parents feel safe having their children on your play equipment.

FACTORY SIZE

The size of an indoor play equipment centre would depend on your target market. If you are only targeting toddlers age from 0 to 5yrs the factory could then be quite small, lets say around 400 m2. If they are looking at an all ages type of indoor play equipment centre then you would need to have a play factory of minimum 650m2 but should be more like 700 to 800m2. Anything around 1000m2 would be considered on the larger play equipment scale. The height of the play factory is a very important factor. A high three lane slide will require around 6 metre’s in height, so this should be the minimum for a multi age play centre going up to 7m to 10m high. A toddler only play equipment centre could be as low as 4m up to 6m.

BUDGETS

It is very difficult to give an accurate budget for an indoor play equipment centre. Before a suitable building is secured, design and layout can alter the costs. To give an idea of budgeting I would consider a budget of around $500 per square metre for the total cost of the indoor play equipment centre. This would vary greatly on the fit out of each building accurate quotes can be obtained however, the building layout must be provided and access given to do accurate measurements. Use our current catalogue and price list to get an idea of and indoor play equipment size versus cost. Note we are responsible for the indoor play equipment section only, therefore the kitchen, cafe, party rooms, toilets, air conditioning would need to be quoted by the relative industry experts.

CAR PARK SIZE

 General rule of thumb is .03 car parks per m2 of factory floor space for the indoor play centre however, all councils are different. The council should be a first port of call when considering a location and building for a new play equipment centre.

COUNCIL APPROVALS (what you need)

All councils are different. The council should be a first port of call when considering a location and building for a new indoor play equipment centre.

KITCHEN AND FOOD

Food should be a cafe style meaning light but good quality meals foccasias, toasted sandwiches, hot chips, etc. Coffee is very important in an indoor play equipment centre must be top quality. Meals should be not too expensive but still good in quality and presentation.

STAFF

Generally staff are quite young with the owner or manager running the play centre. Staff should be polite and work well with kids. They should have working with children cards and have food handling skills. It is very important that your indoor play equipment centre is very clean at all times. Parents will not return to a play centre if they have a bad experience with cleanliness.

LOCATION OF INDOOR PLAY EQUIPMENT CENTRES

Location does not need to be road frontage and can be off the main road, your cliental will most likely live within a 10km radius of the play equipment centre. Generally lower economic growing areas are better as there are a higher ratio of children per person in these areas. The toddler market is mostly live at home mothers groups your environment must be a chance for mothers to get together regularly and feel safe that their toddlers are in viewing distance as they can sit down with their friends for a chat and laugh in a friendly relaxing environment. If they enjoy there stay at your play equipment centre and feel that their children are safe then they will come back time after time at least once a week becoming a good source of a steady income.

DESIGNING INDOOR PLAY EQUIPMENT

Make good use of space. Understand that the cafe is a good money maker and be sure to have enough seating area relative to your space around 25 to 30%. The toddler area should be directly beside the cafe seating area for mothers to sit and keep an eye on their toddlers at all times. The area should be easily viewed. The older kids area and party play equipment rooms should be towards the rear of the building so as to keep them separate from the younger ones.

RUNNING AN INDOOR PLAY CENTRE

In summary of the above comments in order to run an indoor play centre and financially do well here are the main 10 key points you need to know.

  1. Choose some great looking indoor play equipment that is suited for your area both suburb and warehouse size and usability.
  2. Choose play equipment that can be easily cleaned by you or your staff. We have seen many companies supply indoor play equipment that is full of spiral tubes, hard to get to areas so when kids dirty the tubes or the entire play equipment needs a clean then it can be a nightmare to get into tight areas.
  3. Choose a design where the parents can easily see their children in almost 90% of the play equipment design. That way the parents can sit back and relax and have their kids in eye sight at most times.
  4. Be cautious of your entry and exit areas. Always have theses points right where the parents will be sitting and talking to other friends for security reasons.
  5. Let us design the indoor play equipment for you. We are Australia’s most knowledgeable company in the industry and will ensure you get the best value for money.
  6. Make great coffee. This is a must have, Parents need to enjoy their stay. If the parents are happy then they will come back time after time.
  7. Have a small but tasty selection of food for the parents. The parents can be tired and use your indoor play centre as a refuge to relax and chat to friends. Make it a happy relaxing atmosphere.
  8. Promote parties, parties can be your bread winner. A dozen kids can come in for only an hour or two. Whip up some easy sausage rolls, party pies, etc and charge per head. Its easy money and great fun.
  9. What’s the latest craze at the moment with kids? Why not incorporate themeing in your play equipment designs. We have recently completed a massive indoor job where included karaoke rooms with singing and disco lights. The kids love it and the owners are making a lot of money.
  10. Be nice and friendly. No one likes a grumpy host. If you are happy, friendly and social then this reflects on your business. You could also make a lot of great friends and build a community of trust and happiness. People talk and word of mouth could be your greatest advertising!

Benefits of children indoor playground

We are all well versed in the benefits of being outdoors, and outdoor activities. It is well known that being outside is great for you, but what about those days when the weather is just a little too much to bear? With winter here, spreading its chill around, indoor play seems like a very appealing option. But what are the benefits to children indoor playground?

 

Indoor playground  FOR ADVERSE WEATHER

Unpredictable weather can throw a spanner in the works when it comes to children playing outside. It might not be safe, or it might just be outright unpleasant, both of which won’t be conducive to children playing outside. This is why a children indoor playground is a brilliant substitute when outside isn’t an option. An indoor play area can allow children to stay active and entertained and some indoor play areas will also have air conditioning, which is a bonus for the parents too!

Soft play  ENCOURAGES CREATIVITY

Children are faced with situations and challenges when they bond and interact with other children; this helps them develop their imagination. Children tend to be more expressive with each other and this also facilitates them learning from each other. With an indoor play area, children have the freedom to explore and develop their creativity in a secure and safe environment. Interacting with others also helps children’s language development, while also creating a space where they can share ideas, express their feelings and build friendships. children indoor playground encourages children to learn how to socialise and start to understand particular social behaviours, and an indoor play area creates the safe space for them to trial and error many things.

 

Children indoor playground FACILITATES PHYSICAL EXERCISE

In an age where electronics are the norm, it is easier than ever for children to stay indoors and opt for games or play time that requires no physical activity. children indoor playground offer the comfort of the inside but allows children to partake in physical activity, without even noticing! There are plenty of benefits of exercise, and children aren’t excluded. Children who engage with physical activity regularly are healthier both mentally and physically. As a result, they are more likely to want to face tasks and challenges head on, which is a great attitude for indoor soft play!

 

Children indoor playground ENCOURAGE DEVELOPMENT OF MOTOR SKILLS

children indoor playground encourages both gross and fine motor development with the interaction they have within a soft play area. In an indoor play area, children are free to step, crawl, climb and jump without any fear of injury, which means they are more likely to try to move their bodies and master the art of jumping or rolling. Indoor play areas also provide a safe space where children can practise fine motor skills such as balancing and provides an open space and lighting. This provides a good sensory experience for children learning movement skills.
