Why do children need outdoor playgrounds?

1. There's nothing better than running, jumping, throwing, catching, pulling, lifting and carrying outdoors. All of these movements require improved motor skills with practice. Children playing in an outdoor playground can engage in aerobic exercise and acquire skills such as pushing and pulling on outdoor playgrounds. Studies show that children burn more calories outdoors, helping to prevent obesity and strengthen bones and muscles. Playing in the sun produces vitamin D in the body, which means stronger bones and a lower likelihood of chronic disease. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, many children are vitamin D deficient.

2. Unstructured outdoor play can help children learn to take turns, share and develop other positive behavioral skills. They are more likely to be creative, to explore and understand the world around them, and to use their abilities. When they invent and play games with siblings or friends, these interactions help improve communication, cooperation and organizational skills. In addition, fresh air and free movement can reduce stress levels.

3. Studies in optometry and visual sciences have shown that children who play outdoors have better distance vision than children who play indoors. Preschoolers learn new things especially through their senses. Think of a toddler's delight in seeing new animals (to see), stopping on a bed of fragrant flowers (to smell and touch), watching the bubbles in a puddle step on (to hear and touch) or eating parental approved berries (to taste) from a bush. ). Children glued to televisions and electronic devices, on the other hand, use only two senses (hearing and vision). This may have a negative impact on the development of perception.

4. Children who spend a lot of time in an outdoor playground are more curious, self-directed, and likely to be on call longer. Children who spend most of their time indoors and rarely participate in activities that require self-initiated and follow-up are less able to initiate or participate in new activities. In fact, a study of children diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) found that children with ADHD who spent a lot of time outdoors showed fewer symptoms.

5. Outdoor light stimulates the pineal gland. This part of the brain is crucial to keeping our immune system strong and making us feel happier. Time spent in nature has also been linked to improved mood and happiness. Another benefit is that children who identify with nature are more likely to become adults who appreciate nature and want to protect the environment.
