School’s out for Summer! If you’re looking to keep entertained and away from the TV, let us go through some of our top outdoor toys perfect for the summer holiday school break. Just because the children are away from the classroom, this doesn’t mean that they are away from development and learning. There are many key benefits to outdoor play:
- Firstly, outdoor play builds physically healthier children. There is no better place for running, jumping, lifting objects, throwing and catching!
- Unstructured outdoor play also contributes to cognitive, social and emotional development. Learning to share, communicate, co-operate and much more is involved and vital to little ones.
- Sensory skills are improved. An optometry and vision science study showed kids who play outdoors regularly have better distance vision than children who are always indoors.
- Attention spans are increased as regular outdoor play leads to more curious and self directed little ones.
