If you’d like to build your preschooler’s gross motor skills, make sure that you don’t forget about helping them play outside.
WHY PRESCHOOLERS SHOULD PLAY OUTSIDE
Playing outside is extremely important for children in order to gain an appreciation for nature, and soak in some much needed sun light. When your preschooler is running and playing outdoors, they are building important gross motor skills. Gross motor skills are important for building the large muscles in your preschooler’s arms, back, and legs. Being outdoors provides your preschooler with an expanded environment to learn and play in, which helps them learn more about the world around them and build their imagination.
