As times have changed, kids are spending less and less time outdoors. When the older generations were younger, there was no such thing as technology or video games. Now, that seems to consume kids from a very young age. While it can be sad, there are still some activities that kids love for the outdoors. Things like sports and riding bikes are still very much ingrained into the lives of young kids as they go through their formative years.
- Sedentary activities are on the rise for kids, things like texting, social media surfing and gaming.
- The new generation also spends more time doing indoor education-based activities and homework.
- Data shows, however, that kids with more outdoor time are happier, more relaxed and concentrate better.
“The more outdoor activities you can encourage and facilitate for your kids, the more it will become a part of their life and habits. Creating outdoor experiences for the entire family is a big part creating an outdoor lifestyle.”
