Activities & Days Out / 22 October, 2018 / My Baba
Here are the top five benefits of being outside with your young family and enjoying the changing seasons.
Nothing quite beats that refreshing first deep breath of fresh autumn air before starting hours of fun outdoor play and of course, as a result, children sleep better. Sleep is vital as when children sleep they process their day and take on board their learning and development.
Being stuck indoors is simply not healthy. By being outside your little one will develop a stronger autoimmune system and a resistance to allergies. Various studies show that children who live in rural areas, or are more active outside, have better overall health.
The seasons may have turned but young children still have the energy and desire to play. Children are still growing during the autumn and winter months, and being inactive is not conducive to their muscular development. Keeping them active keeps them strong and healthy.
Autumn offers so many awesome ways to stimulate your child’s imagination through play. Den building, scavenger hunts, leaf rubbing – the list is endless. Towns, parks and the countryside give so many opportunities for developing problem solving and imaginative skills.
Autumn offers fun for everyone – mums, dads and grandparents too. As with any time spent with children, autumn signals the perfect opportunity to bond and enjoy fun outdoors together.
At this time of year there are lots of changes in nature that kids will be in awe. Towns, parks and the countryside are bursting with orange, gold and yellow as autumn arrives. Piles of leaves are crying out to be jumped in. Conkers are precious treasures. Find an autumnal landscape near you, breathe the fresh air and enjoy everything the great outdoors has to offer.
