Why is playing outdoors important?
Being outdoors provides stress relief for both parents and their children. Everyone benefits from the effects of vitamin N (nature), even if you’re just spending time in your backyard, or at your local playground.
When kids play outside in nature they tend to push themselves more and test their physical limits. This helps strengthen them not just physically, but emotionally and intellectually as well. It also encourages creativity, cooperation and a sense of adventure.
