The preschool children love getting active whilst exploring what they can design and build with the soft play.
Selecting their favourite pieces and working together as a team, its a great way to combine their physical development with creativity and personal social skills. Independently they carried and moved the chosen pieces to assemble a fantastic obstacle course, which they could climb and jump over and practice their balancing skills on. Next time, we are planning to encourage the children to build an obstacle course out in our brilliant new garden.
