What Are The Benefits Of Playing Outdoors?
The freedom of being outdoors can encourage kids to exercise, have time away from routines and busy schedules, have the freedom to try new things, solve problems and explore nature, make friends and engage with others.
Experts have found that outdoor play gives children more advanced motor skills than their "indoor" peers as they engage their muscles, bones and physical endurance. Kids who play outdoors are also more likely to have better self-awareness, observation and reasoning skills.
