Promoting the Keystones in Outdoor Activities

As we approach summer, you may be encouraging your patients to spend more time doing physical activity outdoors. Spending time outdoors has been shown to have positive effects on attention, vision, and development. You can suggest that families try out these outdoor activities below to promote self regulation and academic knowledge.

Academic Knowledge
Try playing I Spy with a twist. Once you find an object, ask a question about it. I spy a bus! How many wheels are on the bus?

Self Regulation
Using games like Freeze Dance, Red Light Green Light, or Simon Says can help a child practice controlling their body. Check out the video below from VROOM for more fun ideas!
