Outdoor time is not wasted time!
Overweight preschoolers, elimination of recess, increased numbers of children on medication… serious issues that are a direct result of our (mistaken) belief that if children are playing they are not learning. This workshop will examine many reasons WHY children need to play outside and will also address some of the social factors which inhibit outdoor play. We’ll wrap up by viewing a picture show of children engaged in outdoor play experiences that you can immediately implement in your own home or center based program. And best of all, they are activities that use materials you probably already have in the garage or the shed!
