The purpose of Playground equipment is to teach through play. Kids gain a great deal from a simple playground. What we need is to put together some icons that represent the different values and benefits that can be gained from play equipment.
The icons are to tag different aspects of play value in complex play structures. They will have a separate index that will give in depth explanations, so the icons just need to capture something of the idea,
enough to distinguish that aspect from the others in the set.
They should be playful, rather than serious or academic; they will mostly be used at small scale so need to be simple lines.
Supplied suggestions in the attachment are indicative only: better ideas welcome.
An example is a large climbing structure in a playground. Kids get to develop their Climbing skills, Imagination, Socialising etc We want to then use these icons under each play equipment to communicate these benefits.
