Summer is here! That means it’s time for some outdoor adventures. If you have young children, playing outdoors is a fantastic way to not only bring your family closer together, but a way to foster your child’s developing skills.
To help your children get the most out of their summer, here are a few toys that will help them develop several skills while having fun.
Even if you don’t have a garden or yard, there are plenty of open spaces where you can take your children to explore without toys. Encourage them to find plants or flowers of a certain colour, ask them to count the birds in the sky, or play a simple game of tag.
If you’re stuck on ideas, there are plenty of free printable resources online with outdoor activities that will keep the whole family entertained outside. You can also use the time as a chance for independent play, letting your child develop their curiosity and imagination in nature.
