“Play is our brain’s favourite way of learning”
Here at VM+ we are experts on creating unique and stand out play areas for children. Not just your average swing set with a table and chair, we take it to the next level…. This month VM+ transformed a vacant tenancy into a rainforest play land.
At Robina Town Centre, VM+ took the task to transform a vacant tenancy to temporarily become an adventure land for children and a haven for parents to take a breather in-between shops. Focusing on creating a place of solitude away from the busy shopping areas, VM+ has created a rainforest oasis with bright green turf, vivid wall graphics and greenery and trees galore.
Hanging greenery and vines from the ceiling was a very purposeful decision to add the sense of depth and create an even more immersive experience. From the view point of children, the ceiling will become a canopy, allowing minds to wander and activate their imaginations.
It is the small touches that really transform the space to be a place of adventure. VM+ has added ‘ride on’ insects to the scene, enhancing the magical park atmosphere as lady birds and bees zoom around on the bark flooring path.
Among the turf is a gross motor play gym, catering to toddlers and the younger generations so the whole family can get involved in this play area. Smooth edges and different textures make it an active learning space. Tables and chairs in bright colours and a tepee tent inspire essentials ingredients to childhood such as story-time learning and role-playing.
In tribute to Australian wildlife, VM+ has added a sensory play panel in the shape of a crocodile. Objects such as this take up minimal space but encourage hours of play with each panel using various motor skills and encouraging sensory interaction.
With attention to detail, VM+ includes fun sensory elements such as cushions that appear to be logs and stones. Interactive materials encourage play yet add a visually stimulating element.
