The Huge Benefits of Outdoor Play

The huge benefits of outdoor play are well documented but sadly kids are not reaping them in!

Staying indoors!

With spring in full swing and the days have started to get brighter, parents across the UK are encouraging their kids to embrace the outdoors. Major retailer TK Maxx has conducted research revealing that the average UK child only goes outside for half an hour each day. The poll of 2,000 parents with children aged 5 to 15 years old, found that the average child will spend as many as 2 days inside in a row. 

Isn’t that just so sad!
