Lots of children’s activities are currently off limits because of restrictions and lockdowns. But playing outside is a free option for keeping children entertained. Outdoor play can help with children’s physical and mental development.
But finding even 15 minutes for children to play outside can benefit them in a range of ways. Think about opportunities in your daily routine for them to spend time outdoors. You could encourage them to play in the garden in the afternoon or in the park at the weekend. You could go on a nature trail or organise a family sports day. Or you could just take a small detour on the way home from school to spend some time at a playing field.
