Inspiring Preschool Playgrounds


Now that spring is really almost here (we're so close I can feel it!) I'm desperate to be outside with my students.  I've been drooling over some really impressive playgrounds, and I had to share them with you!

Amazing sound exploration center from Babble

Natural landscaped sandbox from Mummy Musings and Mayhem

Outdoor work space (great art opportunity!) from Kiwi Teacher

Loose parts for the playground from Puzzles Family Day Care

Easels for the playground from Sun Scholars

Easy, beautiful sun canopies from Let the Children Play

My favorite thing about each of these ideas is that they are actually do-able.  I could really make any of these great play space happen without spending a ton of money, and I know my students would love them.  Maybe our snow will melt soon and I'll actually get to try some of these out!

  1. These are great outdoor spaces! I currently live in the UK and worked in a reception class last year and they had a HUGE outdoor learning space. The kids were able to move indoors and outdoors throughout the day and it was an amazing thing to see. It really made me think about outdoor learning spaces and how I'd love to have some outdoor space when I'm back in my own classroom in the future. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Being able to offer outdoor play all day long would be a dream! I love outdoor spaces that are aesthetically pleasing, but I'm sooooo not a landscaper! I'm all about these DIY ideas, thanks for stopping by Kelly!
