It is becoming more and more common to see children inside playing video games or watching television, than it is to see them in the backyard playing on an outdoor fort or jumping on a trampoline. While some who read this may see no issue with it at first, we want to help educate you on why a swing set may be a better purchase than the X-Box you are considering.

Outdoor play is considered one of the best places for young children to develop their motor skills, such as running, climbing, and jumping. It also helps them to develop many of the physical skills involved in playing sports.

Not only does outdoor play benefit children’s physical development, but it also helps with cognitive and social/emotional development. Playing outdoor games on an outdoor fort or trampoline can assist children in developing communication skills and vocabulary, continue to enhance number relationships (counting or keep score), and social skills (playing together and cooperating with one another).
