Outdoor Play, Product inspiration
This folding Deck Chair is a great addition to the outdoor seating area. The deck chair is made from FSC® hardwood in a natural oil finish, complete with a canvas seating area. The seat adjustment incorporates a safety catch to ensure the chair doesn’t inadvertently close while being used. The deck chair will require regular oiling to maintain timber appearance. The deck chair measures 83cm high x 47cm wide x 35cm seat height. The folding deck chair when used in the outdoor play area will allow children to experience a ‘home’ situation at the centre which will enhance their social skills through pretend play.
When children engage in pretend (or dramatic) play, they are actively experimenting with the social and emotional roles of life. Through cooperative play, the child will learn how to take turns, share responsibility, and creatively problem-solve. When your children pretend to be different characters, they have the experience of “walking in someone else’s shoes,” which helps teach the important moral development skill of empathy. It is normal for young children to see the world from their own egocentric point of view, but through maturation and cooperative play, children will begin to understand the feelings of others. Children also builds self-esteem when they discover they can be anything just by pretending!
All timber used in this Deck Chair is approved by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®). This is the world’s most rigorous labelling system for timber products, and is the only forest label supported by the World Wildlife Fund & Greenpeace. FSC® approval ensures that this item is an environmentally friendly and sustainable option for the classroom.
