How to… Get the Most out of Your Canopy Guide

…For educational environments

Your canopy has many uses – more than you might think. Not only can you use your canopy to shade your staff and children from the sun and to protect them from the rain, you can also use it to provide shelter at outdoor events, or to store play equipment out of the rain, plus much more.

Our How to… Get the Most out of Your Canopy guide does “exactly what it says on the tin”! It contains loads of inspiration and ideas for what you can use your canopy for.

We’ve also included some useful worksheets and lesson ideas which will help you bring another dimension to your learning environment by incorporating the outside into lessons.

Each week we will bring you a new idea out of the guide, however if you can’t wait for next week’s inclusion and would like to download your free printable version of the guide now please click here:

So here it is, the first idea for how to get the most out of your canopy…

Holding Events

If you regularly hold events within your establishment then this is a great way to get some extra use out of your canopy. If the weather is poor or too hot and humid during your event, using your canopy would offer your spectators and visitors a comfortable sheltered area to enjoy the event under.

Your canopy can create a sheltered stage area, a covered refreshment area or a sheltered viewing area.

Sports Day

If you hold sports day events then using your canopy is a great idea especially if it is near your sports field. Spectators could sit under the canopy or the children that are waiting for their turn could wait under the canopy to keep then sheltered from the rain or sun helping to avoid heat stroke.

Make sure you pop back next week to see the following inclusion which includes tips for storing outdoor play equipment.
