What Kids Need

The great outdoors is still the number-one spot for truly unstructured play. Free play allows kids to do what comes naturally to them--make up their own games, develop their own rules, explore their world with gusto. Time spent playing outdoors encourages kids to exercise their bodies along with their cognitive and social abilities, helping them develop vital skills they need to become positive, productive adults.


Whether on an innovative play structure or deep in the woods, kids playing outside are more apt to stretch their imaginations along with their muscles, playing more freely as they literally swing from one adventure to another.

 

Research now shows a direct connection between daily exposure to natural environments and children's health.  Richard Louv, author of national bestseller Last Child in the Woods, has sparked a national conversation about the disconnection between children and nature, and has galvanized an international movement.  Hear more by viewing the AustinNOW video now.
