Outdoor toys – the best investment for your child's health and development
When it comes to toys, you really can’t beat outdoor toys! Aside from being fun they offer so much by way of development for your children.
Outdoor toys can be purchased in different designs and of course have different purposes. So whether you need a swing for the little one or an exciting climbing frame to keep them busy, you will always be investing in your childrens’ health and well-being.
Staying indoors day after day is an all too tempting option. Even as adults we can often choose the TV over exercise, but the truth is, energy and keeping fit starts when we’re children so it’s good to create an environment where it’s the norm to keep busy! Outdoor toys foster growth in all different ways for children. They can help children learn to play with others, they can help them learn about sharing or decision-making and even improve their co-ordination. And just because it’s January does not mean that it’s too early either. Getting outside can often help to keep the bad germs at bay and will help your child to build up a good resistance to the bugs that go around so often.
Climbing frames are particularly good at developing your child’s initiative and imagination. It can also help build their confidence levels up as they navigate the ladder, the ropes or monkey bars!
Any outdoor activity encouraged now will help your child socially too. Half of the battle as adults is negotiating people and it may be surprising to learn that playing outside with others really helps.
