Did you know regular outdoor play not only gives your kids a healthy body, but can also improve social development and reduces stress as well?
We all know outside play is healthier for kids than sitting in front of a “screen”. In fact, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends children receive at least 60 minutes of physical activities a day to promote a healthy body weight and body composition.
But there are more benefits as well! Playing outdoors promotes social development by creating a less threatening environment for children to create friendships. A child that may feel intimidated in a structured setting, such as a classroom, may feel more comfortable making friends by swinging or climbing on the monkey bars outside.
Also, running and playing in the fresh air can relieve stress and help children clear their minds after a busy day at school.
Having a playset, trampoline or basketball goal at your house not only can promote a healthier lifestyle for your children, it can promote a healthier social and mental lifestyle as well without leaving your backyard.
