What Kids Want

Nothing is more powerful than the imagination of a child! Hosting a Design Day is the perfect way to harness all that vibrant energy. Every child has great ideas about what they would like to see in THEIR playground. Let their imaginations run wild as they add slides, playground climbers, swings and more. Provide all the paper, pens and crayons these budding designers need to draw a playground that’s just right for them. Offer suggestions that kids might not think of, like playground shade structures and benches for resting.

While committee members were planning for a new playground at Blake-Highcroft Elementary School in Wayzata, Minn., they were able to get the students involved by conducting a Design Day. Eager children in grades K-4 congregated one afternoon to help develop their dream playground.

 

Students divided into small groups, looked through catalogs and brochures, and started sketching out their ideas for the new playground on paper. The results? Blake Elementary students wanted twirly and straight slides, climbing walls, monkey bars, tunnels to climb through, spinning components, a tire swing and much more!

 

Committee members and Landscape Structures took all of the ideas from the Design Day and incorporated as many as possible into their new playground. Check out the final design here
