Play Learn Thrive
The benefits of playing outdoors have been studied extensively over the past few decades. Research shows that spending time outdoors positively affects physical health, mental wellbeing, and overall happiness.
When children are outside, they are being given input to all of their senses. Children get to smell different smells like fresh-cut grass or wet leaves. See all the different types of trees and colorful wildflowers. They can also feel the wind, sun, or rain on their face. These are natural sensory experiences, and they are better than any sensory bin you can find on Pinterest!
