The Benefits of Water Play for Children

By June 28, 2019 July 1st, 2019 No Comments

Summer is HERE!

And at InspiredPlay, we’re gearing up to create some amazing aquatic play experiences!

We all know children love playing in water but did you know that it actually has restorative properties? Water play alleviates stress and helps to regulate emotions.

Children get this benefit and much more when they engage in water play, providing opportunities to experiment with math and science concepts, strengthen their physical skills, advance their social and emotional skills, and enhance language development. Water play stimulates the senses and helps further brain development.

The best thing about water play is that people of all ages love it, meaning families of many different ages and abilities can enjoy an activity together that makes everyone happy.

Our fantastic partner Water Odyssey provides the market with the highest quality aquatic playground equipment available. As the leading designer and manufacturer of interactive water features in the country, they have been able to bring cutting edge technology to the design of aquatic playgrounds.

Bringing over 60 years of collective experience, the principals of the parent firm Fountain People, Inc. developed the Total Services Approach to water feature design.⁣
