The possibilities are endless. We havetheme parks that use this concept and do very well, people enjoy themselves whilst seeing,smelling and feeling what it is or was like to be in the place the park is recreating.Take Egypt for example, a playground can have pyramids which children can climb around insidewhilst learning facts about the real pyramids, the temple at Karnak has some amazing featuresthat could be reproduced in a playground. The visual experience of the hieroglyphics alone is asight to behold, they dont have to be exact, but would give a representation of the actual place.After all kids do learn better when they are having fun and you can bet when something lookstotally different than the normal sort of playground area then children will love it.Kids can learn from pieces of information around the playground that can also give themchallenges to achieve whilst they are playing. Imagine a set of big rubber blocks, which aresecured at different lengths and can only be put together one way to create a pyramid or even anInca temple. They could have a leaning tower of Pisa which has a slide coming from it, aroundabout that raises a drawbridge to a medieval castle, which is a climbing frame.All these playgrounds dont have to be that extravagant, but can be educational for all ages. Putsome ideas to your local authorities and when they bang on about cost, tell them they can recyclethe playgrounds they already have, and the community is behind them.Rubber mulch can be used, as the playground surface, as both a safety feature and educationaltopic.Make sure you teach the children that the safe, rubber mulch surface in their playground isrecycled rubber and is environmentally friendly.Making a conscious effort do these things will help the environment, why not show the world ofyour good environmental intentions by using brightly colored rubber mulch in your garden? Rubbermulch will also save you a considerable amount of work too.Article Source:
