31 Outside Activities for Kids

Spending time in outdoor activities can be extremely healthy, and in a world of digital overstimulation, it is so crucial to keep them alive. Some activities for kids to do outside include starting a small garden or picking produce at an orchard. Take walks and bike rides with the whole family and have picnics. Spot different kinds of wildlife, insects, and plants. Build a fort, have a bonfire and stargaze. Take art projects, meals, and other everyday activities such as homework, outside.

Key Takeaways:

  • When the weather is nice, it is a lot easier to encourage kids to go outside and play in order to enhance their creativity.
  • Kids have a lot of challenges now than when adults were children and one of them is that they prefer playing computer games indoors than going outside to play.
  • It has been shown by studies that spending time outdoors makes kids happier and more relaxed. It also improves short-term memory, concentration and cognitive skills.

“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.”
