Outdoor play improves your child’s physical, mental, and social development. Physical skills are essential for your child’s growth, physical coordination, and the movement of the body. Outdoor play is a big part of healthy growth, development, and learning of your child. When children play outdoors, they increase their ability to jump, climb, throw, run, and balance themselves.
Outdoor play helps your baby to learn about different surroundings and can make you feel more comfortable with the world around him. Enjoy some time on a blanket or towel with your little champ, crawling on the grass, through big boxes, under outdoor furniture, looking at different colored cars, street signs, and traffic light signals. Enjoying some beautiful moments with him, you can help your child make the most of this stage with outdoor plays.
Playing outside helps your child to develop his learning abilities. By putting some educational materials outdoors, your child is soon learning through play, which is a fun way and also helps your child to develop new skills of information and abilities.
With more room to play in, your child is often more active when outside. It helps them to build functional fitness, strong bones, and also enable them to burn off extra energy and calories.
Outdoor plays help your child to come out of his shells and to be more socially prepared. It means that your child will be more willing to join in games and activities; he will also be more likely to talk to other children and make new friends. These activities encourage your child to learn social skills and how yo interact with others.
While playing outside and interacting with other children, help your child to learn independence when socially interacting with other children as well as learning to play himself.
Your child learns how to takes turns while playing to pick himself up when he falls, all resulting in learning how to be independent and self-reliant.
BUMPS AND BRUISES
It’s OK for your child to push the play boundaries outside, where he has room to run faster, jump further, and climb higher. It might mean some tears and pain, a scrape, or a fall, but these risky activities help your little champ learn from mistakes and bounce back.
