Celebrate Roald Dahl Day with Creative Play

Coloured Bar

Celebrating the author’s birthday later this week on the 13th of September, Roald Day Day is the perfect opportunity to nurture children’s imaginations. With many different ways to celebrate, from dressing up as your favourite Roald Dahl character to reading your favourite Roald Dahl book, why not integrate something into your outdoor play space that will allow children to celebrate all year round?

With our extensive catalogue of products, we have something to suit everyone from EYFS all the way up to KS2. See below for our top 4 ways to bring a little Roald Dahl whimsy into your outdoor playground.

Invent magic potions!

George’s Marvellous Medicine:

Children will enjoy using their imagination whilst they cook up exciting new magic concoctions with one of our Messy Play Tables or Mud Kitchens. Ideal for sensory play, they provide children with a area in which they can experiment and grow while they solve problems and build on their communication skills through open-ended play.

Traverse tricky obstacles

Fantastic Mr Fox:

Our trim trail items are great for improving fundamental skills, coordination and agility; ideal for any sneaky fox in-training! Go undetected as you sneak away from Boggis, Bunce and Bean on these tricky play pieces. Why not swing across a balance beam, climb the A-Frame Double Net and traverse the wobbly Jelly Board? With our classic Challenger Trim Trail range being ideal for KS1 and KS2, and with a whopping 40+ items to conquer, we also offer a range of EYFS/ nursery trim trail that still encourages age-appropriate risky play for any fox cubs!

The BFG:

Crawl through your own magic cave with one of our many tunnels. Great for developing fundamental movement skills, spatial awareness and confidence, children will love this classic play piece.
