Outdoor Play

Just let them play... Outside

Children enjoy these benefits when they play outside:

  • Increased social skills
  • Lower levels of overweight and obesity
  • Healthy development
  • Improved self-regulation of their emotions
  • Improved skills to deal with stress
  • Opportunities to build resiliency skills

There is a positive link between physical activity and aspects of mental, emotional and social health. Outdoor play is essential because kids are more active when they are outside... and it's fun!
