Playing Outdoor can improve your child’s health and also getting them off the couch. Outdoor activities are fun, exciting and important for children’s learning and development. While you’re having fun as a family, taking your children outdoors and supporting their play is also helping their development. It’s not just children, adults are spending less time outdoors as well.

“When you’re outside and your parents are inside, out of sight, you’re in situations where you’re making your own decisions and taking chances—can I jump over that log or climb that tree? Or can we really dig a pit that can hide us from our friends/enemies in the game we’re playing? These kind of achievements—real achievements, not virtual achievements of killing monsters or stealing cars, building levels or whatever video game realities that people get wrapped up with now—were extremely defining for me and my sense of confidence and independence as a person.”—Justin Trudea
There are many crucial reasons how outdoor activities can benefits your child’s well-being.

3. Care for the environment
5. Learn social skills
6. Happiness and better immunity

In day to day life, it can be really hard to make time for outdoor play, but even little time such as an hour in the garden, park or a picnic in the afternoon or evening could benefit kids health and growth in a extraordinary way.
