Original Playground Markings

This post has moved to a new location

I'm not usually a big fan of this kind of addition to a playground, however I think you've nearly converted me!

There are some really well thought out options, and I especially like the fact that they are temporary and you can change them if you want/need to-that was one of my biggest problems with the thermoplastic material; a large outlay for a fixed play option.

The only reason I'm not totally convinced is because I really, really wish schools had more natural surfaces rather than the 'acres of tarmac'.

I guess it'll be a while before that changes so in the meantime I really like this DIY option!!

Here is a map mural on my driveway that I'm very fond of. It's somewhat open-ended, but not as much as many of those pictured here:

Mike - This is a lovely map - I tried to comment on your blog but for some reason I couldn't get the page to open for comments.

I agree with Wondersofnature - there is way too much tarmac and not enough natural surfaces in schools and really this is only just beginning to change - I'm hopeful that in the next 5-10 years, natural surfaces will become the norm and the majority of the school grounds area.
