With well-planned outdoor activities, children will enjoy being out in the fresh air even more. Children who spend lots of time outdoors are less prone to infections. They also have a more confident attitude to outdoor environments. Sometimes we take a pic-nick on our excursions.
Outdoor activities also give children the opportunity to take advantage of the diversity that Mother Nature has to offer. There are endless opportunities for educational activities among cones, leaves, ants and snails, giving us knowledge in languages as well as mathematics and science.
Whether we are in the nearby parks or on longer trips, all senses are part of the learning process.
We learn how to keep the outdoor environment clean by picking rubbish and recycling and we also learn how wild plants and animals function. Being out and about helps to make children aware of their surroundings as well as learning about The Swedish Right of Public Access.
