Importance of Play

 

I had a very interesting professional development session yesterday afternoon and I wanted to share a video with you all. It really highlighted how much Nature Play and risk taking positively impacts a child’s development and learning into the teenage years.

With the cold weather here many children do not get the amount of daily exercise they need (2 hours) and have extra screen time which can have negative results on their health.

If we want our kids to be resilient and persistent in the future they need to take risks, problem solve and learn from mistakes.  Please watch this video when you have a moment with your child and talk about the importance of exercise and play in nature.
