Why is Play Important for Children?
There is a significant amount of psychology behind the importance of playground games. Play is an essential element of child development because it contributes to the social, physical and emotional well-being of children. Play is important for healthy brain development as it allows children to learn how to interact with the world around them in a positive way.
At Designs & Lines, we are passionate believers in play and we know it is integral to academic achievement in children. Play has been known to help children adjust to the school environment, bond with classmates, expand the boundaries of their imaginations and enhance in their academic ability.
Why is Outdoor Play and Games Declining?
You may be wondering, if play is so important, why is it declining in popularity? Well, the simple answer is; technology – one of the largest culprits that is dragging children indoors instead of letting them develop their imaginations outside. At Designs & Lines, we know that children are naturally inclined to play, it’s not something that needs to be taught. For centuries, children have been proving to us again and again that they have a wonderful ability to use their imaginations to transform mundane objects into rockets, pirate ships or magic wands. By filling their heads with technology, their imaginations are dwindling and the importance of outdoor play becoming repeatedly ignored.
Here at Designs & Lines, we are trying to bring outdoor play and playground games back to the forefront of childhood. Our vibrant designs bring life to the playground and colour a once bland playing space with vibrant designs, images and games for children to enjoy. Our brightly coloured images inspire children to drop the technology and enjoy playground games outdoor with their friends. We are passionate about sharing the message that play holds the secret to a happy and healthy life!

Here at Designs & Lines, we offer a range of playground games. Please feel free to browse our selection here. Our most popular playground games are the following:
One of the first playground games in schools, hop scotch is not only one of the oldest but is one of the most popular games we sell. A simple principle, the game involves a hopscotch grid drawn onto the ground which is made up of numbered squares from 1 to 9. A rock or beanbag is used as a throwing item. The item is thrown onto the squares chosen, starting from the nearest square to the furthest. The rock or beanbag must be hopped over as the player makes their way up the numbered squares and back down again. If you toss your rock and miss the correct square, your turn is over.
