Importance of Backyard Games in Your Child’s Development


Recent statistics state that approximately one in three children in the United States are overweight. One way to combat that problem is to get kids outside to run instead of shooting zombies on screen, inside the house.

There’s more benefits to outside play than just the physical aspects. Have you ever seen kids out of school doors as soon as the bell goes off?

You can see freedom and excitement in their faces. Being outside allows kids to engage in behavior that isn’t acceptable outside. For example, they don’t have to use inside voices. Running around is the best way to steam for a child.

Activities like throwing a ball, trampolining, and treasures hunts, all help your child to grow and develop fine motor skills. Backyard games usually involve more kids and social skills are another important aspect of a child’s development.


Did Our List of Backyard Games Bring Back Some Memories for You?


play dough for backyard games

You will have noticed some oldies and goodies on our list and that was deliberate. Although the modern toys are fun to play with there’s a lot to be said for the sheer fun of getting your hands dirty by making mud pies or building sandcastles.
