Have you ever noticed how restless your children become when they’ve been cooped up inside for too long? Most parents know the struggle a restless child can be and how limited many children’s attention spans really are.
If your children lose interest easily and become restless quickly, it’s possible they are not spending enough time outdoors. Encouraging your children to play outside regularly is one of the best ways you can ensure your kids are healthy and getting the physical activity they need to grow properly. Don’t let your kids be afraid of getting their hands dirty – sifting through paydirt for gold, for example, is a nice ice breaker for kids who may be hesitant outdoors.
