Tunnels can provide many benefits to the health and well-being of children. These include:

  • Exercise: These structures give children a way to exercise that differs from other types of play equipment. Crawling or scooting through the tunnel can enhance the physical activity they are gaining from other play pieces.
  • Developing Motor Skills: Exploring tunnels can help children develop their gross motor skills, coordination, and body awareness. The crawling movement helps them control the moving of their arms and legs. 
  • Dramatic Play: Of course, tunnels offer a child a fun and interactive way to play. They can move through them, hide in them, or look out of them in the models with bubbles or windows. They can make the whole play space more fun and exciting for children, helping them get more out of their play experience.
