Children love to play and outdoor play is really important. They need natural sunlight and fresh air. If they can run around outside and find new things, they can grow and develop.
Children love to pick flowers, splash through puddles, run through leaves and search for mini-beasts. They can use their imagination and learn to problem solve.
Playing outdoors doesn’t need to be expensive or in large gardens or parks. The smallest green spaces can be fun as long as these are safe places to play.
