The outdoors provides so many opportunities for child development. As children explore playgrounds and parks, sensory experiences are everywhere. Children have the chance to watch others play and socialize, and are encouraged to challenge themselves. Coordination, motor planning, strengthening, balance and visual gross motor skills are just a few things that a trip to the park can facilitate. Trying different parks every week also encourage your child to adapt and try newly learned skills in a slightly different arena. What a great confidence builder for your child! Take advantage of the sunny days and let your child’s confidence level soar!
