Playground Social Skills
Outside playground activities help to develop crucial social skills. Children learn skills such as sharing, turn taking, cooperation, conflict resolution and spatial awareness. Studies show outside time is valuable to our overall health and wellness.
Pragmatic: Studies show children naturally increase activity levels just being outdoors vs. indoors
Inclusive: Nature "tends to meet children where they are," allowing kids of all ages, interests and developmental stages to find activities that will engage them
Psychological: Being outdoors eases stress and alleviates anxiety—benefiting mental health and physical health
