With the start of school, fall, and holidays right around the corner it’s super important to make sure your child gets plenty of fresh air, exercise, and sunshine. The cooler weather is soon on its way and it’s a great time of year for children (and adults) to spend more time outside. Being outside anytime of year is great exercise for the body and the mind, but with the onset of cooler weather its sometimes easier for us to be outside thus spending more time doing so. When children are playing outside, especially with a friend, a ball or a bike, it encourages active play. This allows kids to create and participate in their own activity, as well as encourages creativity, and imagination, and teaches children how to amuse themselves. Playing outside gets them a healthy dose of Vitamin D, a critical role in many body processes. Exercise can also help improve a child’s sleep patterns and moods. Making sure kids play outside will help them develop an appreciation for the outdoors and a sense of adventure! One way to accomplish this is by letting children play on a swing set which can open up a world of imagination, and they learn best when their whole bodies and minds are stimulated. TimberGyms sells an entire line of Creative Playthings swing sets made in the U.S.A. that are built tough enough for the whole family to enjoy for years to come.
