These experiences will help to build their sense of self-worth, build their confidence as well as interaction and communication skills.
Outdoor play can have significant benefits on children, both physically, emotionally, and cognitively. Playing outside allows children to run, jump, skip, walk and blow off steams of unspent energy that would normally result in acting out, negative and or challenging behaviours. These physical activities, exercise or movements have been shown to lessen the chances of those behaviours, reduce depression and anxiety in some cases and improve children and young people’s mood, health, and overall wellbeing.
At Dimobi Children Disability Trust, we are always encouraging our children and young people to take part in such activities and even encourage their carers and parents to join in using a creative, fun ways to make them all enjoy such and the intergenerational benefits it offers.
