Outdoor playground equipment - Make play active and fun

Outdoor playground equipment can make play fun, active and educational, where children can strengthen motivity skills and socialize with other children. It can therefore contribute to the child’s development, where it can be adjusted according to levels and ages.
With the advent of digitalization and the screen becoming a big part of many children’s everyday lives, there is a greater focus on children remembering to play and be active outside. Outdoor playground equipment is therefore an obvious way to get them to be more active.

Outdoor playground equipment as part of teaching/learning

We’re also seeing an increase in trends of outdoor playground equipment being used as part of teaching, where the teacher can tailor the teaching to fit the equipment. An outdoor play gym makes it easier for the children to absorb knowledge and stay focused on the tasks when they can use their bodies at the same time.
At NOORD, we do several projects for schools and institutions, so we have experience in adapting the equipment to the children’s level.

Can be fun and functional for both children and adults

At NOORD, we have exercise equipment that can be fun and functional for both children and adults. This way, families can get something out of the equipment and be active together. This is often a nice break from everyday life at home, where things can easily become a bit chaotic.
With outdoor playground equipment, children can use some of their energy and train their basic motivity skills. Much of the equipment can also be used by adults, where you can tailor the exercises to fit the equipment.

Outdoor playground equipment to train balance

It can also be a great way for children to train their balance and coordination. This can be trained, for example, by walking on a tightrope or hopscotch, where you have to coordinate your steps.
It is therefore a great way to make exercise fun for the child, where they most likely won’t think about the fact that they are training their coordination and balance, but simply see it as a fun activity. Try an outdoor play gym and see how they can strengthen your children’s physical skills and development.
On our site you can see more examples of our projects such as training equipment for schools and educational institutions.

This very much depends on where it is to be installed. Here, the equipment is always adapted to the age and level of the children so that they can get the most out of it.

Examples of outdoor playground equipment could be a balance board, climbing frame or a hopscotch where children can strengthen their basic motivity.
