Schools, nurseries and pre-schools – the epicentres of education and learning.

Next stop? – The epicentre of product development.

Newby Leisure understand a child’s imagination never stops. So much so, they want to enhance the benefits of real-life learning inside and outside of the classroom. The playground design company based in Lincolnshire would like to see children getting more hands on, thinking outside the box to develop their own imaginative play resources.

This campaign gives schools the chance to have their very own timber play resource(s) sold globally on

It’s an opportunity that allows the winning school to benefit from 10% of the winning play resource sales for one year.


  • Fantastic idea for lesson planning
  • Bringing play-based learning to life
  • Learn the basics of design, development and manufacturing
  • Great incentive for social engagement
  • Develop a generation of future entrepreneurs


Taking a Dragon’s Den style approach to learning, the playground design company have come up with an idea that will offer fantastic educational benefits. Getting children socially involved in a classroom environment isn’t the easiest of tasks. However, when fun is introduced into the classroom, it makes everything so much more exciting.

They’d like to see children working in pairs or teams to develop a unique timber play resource. The idea can evolve around anything a child desires, so there are lots of play scenarios to consider. Whether it’s a product for Messy Play, Construction Play, Sensory or something totally different, Newby Leisure want to see it.

For some inspiration, check out the range of products on their website here.
