Top-5-outdoor-activities-you-can-engage-in-with-your-child

Do you look on with pride as your child deftly navigates your device for playing music or video games? If yes, it’s important you read this.

It’s true, kids these days are great with tech toys. But that comes at a cost; entertainment being available indoors and at one’s fingertips 24x7 (literally!), kids are naturally less motivated to seek the outdoors or physical activity for excitement. This lack is linked to several growth and development issues.

It would be great to throw exciting, fun-filled outdoor activities into the mix. This helps children in developing their physical and motor skills, which has long-term benefits. Here are 5 classic, tried-and-tested outdoor activities.

Remember your childhood days playing in the gully or your backyard?

Relive that time by playing outdoor games such as hopscotch, hide-and-seek, colour-man, and so on with your kids. This is not only fun, but will also spark independence, decision making, team-work, and grit. Through questions like “where to hide?”, “what colour to choose?”, and having to face loss and victory will set a good tone for later years.

3. Cultural activities

Did you play with spinning tops, kites, or marbles as a kid yourself? These activities are cultural markers, but they’re also great games that require hand-eye coordination, visualisation, and skill!

4. Sky gazing

This is one activity you can do on your back!

Lay down during the day and name cloud shapes or identify constellations on a starry night. Encourage free-association, let imagination take over and watch them paint the blue canvas with their wide-eyed cloud tales.

Go out onto a summer night’s terrace with your little one and share your sky stories with them. Great way to bond, isn’t it?
