Playground Markings Glasgow – Snowy Conditions

Playground Maze in the snow in Glasgow

Despite the snowy conditions last week first4playgrounds completed another installation of thermoplastic playground markings in Scotland. At St Brides Primary School, Cambuslang, Glasgow our installation team had to shovel the snow from the tarmac then dry the area thoroughly before setting out and installing the thermoplastic playground markings. The markings included a rectangular maze, a chess board and a hopscotch.

Playground Markings New Activity Trail

first4playgrounds have just designed a new activity  trail for the   school playground.

The children have to run, skip and jump though different parts of the colourful playground  trail. Activity and fitness trails are  a great way for children to increase their physical activity at playtime and develop important  fine motor skills from the different tasks of  running , hopping, skipping  and jumping. The playground marking trails  can also be used as part of the physical education curriculum and become a colourful outdoor learning space. The new design allows space  to add markings in the centre of the  trail so the children can get the maximum enjoyment out of their playground.

Some popular designs to add include Hopscotch , Whats The Time Mr Wolf and our new Dance Class Moves game.
