Remember those days you spent as a child playing outside until it was dark? If you’re anything like us, you probably spent hours biking, running around in the backyard, kicking a football around or jumping on your trampoline with your siblings!
Unfortunately, our kids are spending more time indoors than out and may not have those same memories. We believe that kids need to balance their time indoors and out. We're all about getting families outside and active on their Springfree Trampoline!
Outdoor play allows children to develop their physical literacy and of course, get fresh air and healthy exercise. With childhood obesity rates are on the rise, playing outside can help children burn energy and stay healthy. Instead of focusing on a set activity or sport, children will often run around, play and engage in motor and manipulative activities such as catching, throwing and carrying objects without thinking of it as exercise.
Outdoor time is important for all kids and encourages learning and exploration. Of course as a parent, you may have safety concerns. And teaching your kids to be watchful and careful is a great way to ensure they stay safe. Since children learn from adults by example, showing your kids an appreciation for the outdoors will get them excited and eager to learn and explore.
The outdoors is a place where children can run freely, yell and get messy. It’s the perfect place to explore and burn off some energy, all while helping them get exercise and be active. Get involved in your community and your neighbourhood and encourage your children to participate in outdoor activities to get them to appreciate the great outdoors.
