Take it Outside

Do you remember the fun that you had playing outdoors as a child? Many positive childhood memories involve outdoor play.

Outdoor play provides children with different opportunities to explore, experiment and develop new skills and abilities. Unfortunately, today’s children play outside far less than their parents did.

Although children aged 5-11 need age-appropriate supervision, parents should try to take a step back sometimes and let their child develop their independence, overcome new challenges and create their own positive memories while being active outside.
