Like it or not, Spring is here. The temps are finally starting to creep up around here and yet my kids still need a little encouragement to take their bodies outside. Perhaps this is the side effect of a long, cold winter season. On Monday I had to pry their fingers off of their video game controllers and devices and actually force them to get a dose of Vitamin D by riding their bikes.
There are so many wonderful benefits to outdoor play for kids of all ages. Outdoor play contributes not only to a person’s physical health but social and emotional well-being as well. One thing I notice with my children is that it’s not always easy to get them outside, but they have a wonderful time once they’re in that environment. Just today we took a ride to a nearby park complete with muddy trails. It started raining when we arrived, but nobody seemed to care. We had a blast exploring and interacting with the playground that is nature. This allows us to get much needed exercise, release stress and learn about our surroundings.
I think all humans are creatures of habit. We are simply used to hanging out indoors after the nasty weather forced us there five (or so) months ago. I know one thing that would entice my children to seek the change of scenery: a brand new backyard complete with a big trampoline and other fun outdoor gear. And for me? Some beautiful new landscaping would make me happy.
