Parents who live in busy urban areas may think there’s no time or opportunity to partake in outdoor play with kids. However, child care experts recommend that families take advantage of this pastime for a number of reasons.
Outdoor play can provide bonding time for children and their parents, and furthermore, it costs nothing to enjoy. All you need to do is walk or drive to your nearest reserve, park, or forest. Moreover, outdoor play presents children with a chance to learn about the world in new and exciting ways. Not all children respond well to more rigid forms of education, such as book reading and test taking; however, exploring nature allows them to focus on what they find most interesting. Outdoor play also gives children the chance to be active and increases their physical well-being.
