Outdoor activities play a vital role in the healthy growth, learning, and development of children. I myself was not an outgoing mother until I read an article one day of the benefits of just 60 minutes per day of outdoor play for children of 2-3 years. Since then I’m very concerned about finding enough time to take my children out to get some outdoor playtime. Playing outside helps children to explore the natural environment and have an adventure. It has a lot of other benefits too including increased flexibility, fine and gross motor skills, boosted self-confidence, fewer chances of a child being short-sighted and sunlight exposure helps in boosting vitamin D as well as including those involved in sports. I’m going to share some of the activities we do when I go out with my children:

  • Exploring colors with them – looking at different colored cars, street signs or traffic light signals.
  • Crawling on grass, watching tree leaves and listening to birds and other sounds.
  • Wheeling, walking, running or jumping into puddles, around trees, over stones or cracks in the footpath, or towards favorite objects.
  • Throwing and chasing balls.
  • Playing in the sand, building a castle or different objects out of the sand.
  • We sometimes do activities that require balance and coordination like skating or cycling.
  • Naming different objects that we encounter on the way.

Suggestions on any other activities are welcome from your side. Being a working mom, it becomes difficult to spare time for daily outdoor activities. However I was fortunate enough to find Little Pandas Early Learning Centre, they have outdoor playtime three times a day in the cooler weather, which made it convenient for me in every aspect.
