Impacts on Mood, Feelings and Behaviors on the Playground

Color is vital to the human experience. Whether it's innate or learned, it's undeniable that color has a vital impact on how we go about our lives. It can affect the way we feel, think, interact with one another and so much more. Color is a subtle yet powerful communication tool, which is why it's one of the most important decisions that can be made when designing a playground environment. Join our experts to truly understand the power of color, and how it can impact moods, feelings and behaviors on the playground.
