I often hear from parents my child is bored or they so hyper at home and I always ask the same question ….
When last did you let them run outside?
Children are never bored when they outside.
Outside they learn to explore and appreciate the wonderful world around them.
Outside they learn to use their imaginations for play. I’m sure you remember making mud pies .
Outside they learn to face dangers and test their limits. Just think of when you learnt to climb a tree.
Outside all their senses are stimulated.
Outside they exercise their gross motor muscles and become more agile.
Outside they learn the basis of a healthy life.
So what you waiting for ….let them play outside
