1. Children have unlimited imaginations, and these are fostered and flourished at the playground.
In Pearson’s playground, we met a girl called Sutan who told us a game that she plays at the playground. She is able to imagine the slides and tiles in the playground as portals and keyboards, which could take her to different imaginary worlds. We were inspired by the power of creativity that children have during play.
2. The majority of creative play stays within the playgrounds and creates bonds within the playgrounds. Children lack the opportunity to share their creativity.
The majority of creative play stays within the playgrounds and creates bonds within the playgrounds. But from our research through talking with the children, they want to play with more playmates and share their games.
3. Low frequency of creativity events, which is not enough to build strong bonds between communities using creativity.
Children’s creations would be sold at specific times, such as the Christmas Market or shown at the Movie Ceremony. But the frequency of events is very low, usually once a year, which is not enough to build strong bonds between communities using creativity.
So what if we introduced a service that would allow children to bring the creativity that is fostered at the playground out. This could strengthen the bond between children, playgrounds and the communities while encouraging and fulfilling children’s need in sharing their ideas and creative thoughts during play.
