- Playing outside sparks imagination, improves motor skills and balance, provides a setting to learn about the natural world.
- Exposure to nature and outdoor play improves scores in math, reading, writing and listening.
So get outside, go play and tag your pictures by posting them Instagram with the tag #popoutside.
