Nature Play Outdoors
Written by Sheila O’Reilly
Outdoor play is such an important part of childhood and there is nothing my girls love more than getting outside to play and explore.
Playing outdoors gives children the opportunity to exercise, develop stamina, strengthen gross motor muscles, takes risks, appreciate nature and much more.
We have definitely acquired a new found appreciation of simple nature play since the arrival of Covid-19 and Lockdown in March. Much more time has been spent playing in parks and forests through Spring, Summer and now into Autumn this year and we have enjoyed observing the seasonal changes too.
