Kids Are Sending Less Time Playing Outdoors?!? Oh No!

Troublingly, a new study has found that just about 50% of preschool age kids aren’t playing outdoors each day. Furthermore, the children in the study were found to be sedentary 80% of the time they are at preschool. So the problem is not just at home. For young children, exercise and play is interrelated. Being outdoors is more conducive to both.

Less time spent playing outdoors is linked to:

  • obesity
  • type II diabetes and high blood pressure
  • high cholesterol
  • anxiety disorders and depression
  • attention deficit disorder

You can help your kids avoid these problems by getting them excited to play outside and taking them out to play daily. This is much easier to do when you have outdoor play toys from CubbyKraft! Let us suggest a few that might interest you and your children:
