Children’s Play Tunnels
When a child disappears down a tunnel they can transport themselves into a different world. They can crawl through the opening at one end and reappear at the other end somewhere different and someone else, such is their imagination.
A children’s play tunnel can be used on its own or can be combined with tents and dens so that children literally do crawl into their own kingdom.
A child’s imagination and play go hand in hand together with learning and their development. As they explore the world in which they live, they begin to understand how it works and their place within it. Role play encourages children to act out experiences they have already been part of. Even if they enact a time they went shopping, or went with Dad to the garage to get the car fixed. By introducing a children’s play tunnel, they can incorporate this into their role play adventures.
A play tunnel, by its very nature, enables children to disappear deep inside it. They may choose to sit in the tunnel, to think and grab some time to themselves. Or they may use it as an escape hatch from one place to another and imagine themselves in a completely different world. Play tunnels provide children with the vehicle to experiment and develop their imaginative play.
When a child uses a play tunnel they are not only developing their gross motor skills, but they are getting exercise and having fun either on their own or with their friends.
A play tunnel is an absolute essential for any physical activity play. Whether it is a rocky road tunnel for a toddler mastering the courage to crawl through a tunnel for the first time, or a set of willow crawl through tunnel panels allowing children to discover and explore there is bound to be a children’s play tunnel in our range to suit your setting.
