Why is Play Important for Children?

We have already briefly mentioned the importance of play in children, but the benefits of this actually go a lot further. Play is an essential element in the development of a child, contributing to their view of the world, their social interactions, and their emotional well-being. Play also helps encourage healthy brain development, teaching children how to interact with the world around them in a positive way.

Painted Games on Playground

At Designs & Lines, we are passionate about the importance of play and we know how integral it is to the development of children. That’s why we design all of our playground games and thermoplastic markings with children in mind. We make all of our designs as fun, playful, and vibrant as possible to encourage children to play. Children are naturally inclined to play, so a brightly coloured playground with numerous fun designs and quirky games will have them outside in no time.

The Painted Games We Install On Your Playground

We sell and install line markings and designs from colours and shapes to games. As experts in play, we have designed a range of games specifically to help encourage developmental progress in children and to increase learning in the following core areas:

  • Maths
  • Puzzle-solving
  • Physical education
  • English (alphabet)

Combine your playground design with learning with our stunning designs. We can transform any dull concrete playground into a fun environment full of imaginative, colourful and educational markings. If you want to encourage active development outside the classroom, check out some of the most popular painted games we install below:


Painted Games on Playground Hopscotch Hopscotch is one of the oldest playground games and it is also one of the most popular. We sell and install huge numbers of hopscotch games every year! The simple principle of the hopscotch game involves a grid of numbered squares drawn onto the ground and an item thrown onto the squares, from the nearest to the furthest. The player must then hop on the numbers in ascending order, skipping the square with the thrown item in. If you miss the correct square, if you fall over, or if your other foot hits the ground, your turn is over.

Snakes and Ladders

Often a popular board game among children, Snakes and Ladders is brought to life in the playground with our thermoplastic installations. We are all about bringing games to life and the vibrancy of our colours really transform your outdoor space. Snakes and ladders is easy to play – all you need is a dice. Players move along the squares, one square per number on the dice, and if they land on a ladder they are moved forward a number of spaces in the game, but if they land on a snake they could slide all the way back to the start. The first player to the finish line wins!

Noughts and Crosses

Noughts and Crosses is a fantastic game suitable for kids of all ages. Played by two players at a time, the first player to get three noughts in a row or three crosses wins the game. One of the oldest games in the book, this is still one of our most frequently sold markings.
