The Benefits of Laughter for Kids

You know the benefits of your child’s laughter for you. It warms your heart and pulls on your heart strings. Sometimes it can bring you out of a bad mood and you wouldn’t trade the sound for all the money in the world. That’s because laughter is the best medicine in the world and hearing your children laugh is simply priceless.

Did you know that laughter also has a ton of benefits for your child? It’s true. When children – and adults – laugh they gain neurological and physical benefits. Here are a few:

  • Laughter strengthens relationships. It helps us attract others and form bonds.

  • Laughter helps defuse conflict, which parents of teenagers know.

  • It promotes group or family group bonding. This is especially true when a family can laugh at themselves and their funny quirks.

  • Laughter is physically good for our bodies as well. Here is what WebMD had to say:

  • “What Happens When We Laugh? We change physiologically when we laugh. We stretch muscles throughout our face and body, our pulse and blood pressure go up, and we breathe faster, sending more oxygen to our tissues… Some studies have shown that the ability to use humor may raise the level of infection-fighting antibodies in the body and boost the levels of immune cells, as well.”

  • Laughter helps relieve stress and leads to restful sleep.

There are several ways that CubbyKraft can help you with a quest to get your kids laughing. We have tons of backyard toys and kid’s furniture that will help. But the best way is to allow your kids to play, play, play!

When kids go outside to play, they are getting their fresh air and healthy exercise.They are running, jumping, climbing the rock wall, sliding, etc. They feel good and laugh often. This sends more oxygen to the tissues in the body and they benefit even more from the exercise. It also sends more oxygen to their brain helping them be creative and engage in pretend play. All benefits that will help a child with their healthy development.

Laughter of this type is something parents should seek for their child every single day. It is as important – some could argue even more important – then attending school. Of course, doing both is the optimum situation. So promote outdoor play at school too. Show your school administrators all of the benefits of laughter and outdoor play by pointing them to our blog!
