13October 2022 / View: 12

With the continuous development of the times, color has become especially important, and it subliminally influences people of different ages. Color can convey a unique message to people, trigger imaginative activities and touch human emotions, so the message conveyed by color in children's play facilities is both aesthetic and emotional.

Children's knowledge of color originates from the outline of every place in the actual life, and in the children's play space, it can cultivate their interest in observing all things, make them receive beauty and gain knowledge and fun from it.


The influence of color on children's psychology

Research shows that children's mood and personality determine their color preferences to a certain extent, and its reveals the psychological feelings of children. Rich colors will have a great impact on children, it can promote the growth and development of children's heartbeat and high emotions, but too exaggerated, too bright colors will affect the psychological development of children's eyesight. Bright colors will make children's emotions high in the short term, but continuous stimulation will make children cranky and insecure.

Blue is the most beneficial color for children's health, with nerve regulating, calming and tranquilizing effect, can strengthen and balance the respiratory system, improve concentration and mental focus, however, using blue for all grounds and walls will make people feel cold inside. Therefore, the use of other color combinations can maintain a relaxed mood and stimulate the imagination and creativity of children.

The design of each space of the site, painted with the appropriate color can have a calming or motivating effect on children, so it is necessary to match color, form and function in harmony, so that children understand color while using color to further influence them and promote their healthy development with a good color space.

There is definite evidence that children learn all this through play. While play may seem like just a free activity that children do for fun, there is a wealth of evidence that play is necessary for children's social, emotional and cognitive development.

Some studies have shown that children who play in emotionally charged colors do better in language development, number knowledge, social skills and emotional control. For example, children play more frequently in green outdoor areas than in non-green areas, and green environments help children form better memories, such is the influence of the color of the general environment on children.

Children's psychological development and behavior are influenced by color. If the space is bright and colorful, it is more likely to attract children's attention, while if the space is monotonous and gray, children's behavior will become delayed, thus affecting their judgmental behavior.

Guided cognition is effective because children lack the ability to distinguish in the face of the world's many and unknown things, and we can make the learning process more efficient through the different color expressions of facilities and equipment. For example, the bead spinning wall shows the front and back side through two colors: light and dark, and children can cognize the dark color as the bottom and pluck the light color beads to create a new pattern. If there is no color distinction, the meaning of this amusement facility will be none, which is typical to improve the creative ability through color cognition.

Therefore, children's playground design should respect children's preferences for color character and inner changes. Children will be curious about the colorful space and have strong feelings for beautiful things. Therefore, children's psychology and design are closely related, and the basis of successful design lies in the ability to successfully grasp the psychology of children.

When designing a play space mainly for children, we should not only consider the color itself, but also the complementary match of the three primary colors and inter-colors, and pay attention to the vividness, appropriateness and association of colors. The overall color tone should be combined with bright and soft, do not use monotone color system. Should uphold the "bright combined with soft, bright combined with gray, single combined with multiple" principle, clever combination of a variety of colors so that the design of the completed work can play the best effect on children.

Take Suzhou Jinlin Cloud Mirror children's playground as an example, based on the IP story line mainly, in the gray mysterious site, children in the interstellar orbit cloud navigation. There are hazy lights and starry sky bright colors as embellishments, and then with the cosmic musical instruments throughout the stars to achieve multiple stimulation and stimulate children's interest. It allows children to learn about the universe while having fun, to play with their creative imagination, and to have fun while learning.

In the Vanke Xintiandi project in Wenzhou, the three primary color rotating rods are used, and by manually rotating them, the new world with overlapping different colors at the top can be seen. The art-inspired hands-on combined installation fully reflects the ability of color to influence children's behavior.

In the design of the space, comprehensive consideration is given to the colors that are acceptable to children of different ages. Adhering to the principle of diverse color matching design is the key to a children's amusement park standing out. The design should follow the following principles.

First, the principle of functionality, people-oriented, first to meet the needs of users

Second, the principle of wholeness, the design should have a distinctive theme expression

Third, the principle of artistry, combined with children's interests and psychology to reflect the beauty of art.

Color emotion depends on the development of children's observation level, language level, 

action level, etc., but also to promote the level of these abilities, color emotion education for preschool children will penetrate all levels and aspects of life and learning of preschool children, to promote the overall development of children.

A design that meets the needs of multiple senses such as the user's vision and touch is a good design for amusement facilities. Take the public as the starting point to design the public artwork that sends their emotions, and reasonably use color matching to present the dream world in children's hearts, so that the visual communication design of children's play area is successful.
