Playing outside is important for teaching children how to behave in social scenarios. After all, not everyone will be able to play on the swings at the same time. Good behaviour can be tricky for children to learn and there is not better way to improve their social skills than by encouraging them to play outside.
When playing outside with other children, it is easier for socially acceptable behaviours to develop naturally. Children will learn more effective communication methods, develop their language skills, and develop patience. Playing outside is a practical activity where they are thrust into real-life scenarios and this helps children remember what they’ve learnt far more effectively than if you’d just instructed them to act in a certain way.
