Outdoor play is a big part of healthy growth, learning, development and wellbeing for your child
Why outdoor play is important
Playing outside gives your child the chance to explore the natural environment and have adventures. She can play favourite games, test her physical limits, express herself and build her self-confidence.
Outdoor play can also mean more mess – and more mess often means more fun!
When your child is outside, he probably has more space and freedom for big movements, like running, jumping, kicking and throwing. Physical activities like these are good for his health, fitness and physical development.
