Play Matters – Playing Outdoors

Playing Outdoors is critically important for children of any age and we encourage you to read the second Play Matters briefing paper which focuses on just that!
 
Children growing up today are experiencing decreasing opportunities to play independently outdoors and this paper explores the reasons why, considers the benefits of playing outdoors for children and offers some simple thoughts and suggestions to helping encourage outdoor play.

 

You can view the Playing Outdoors briefing on the Department of Education’s website at https://www.education-ni.gov.uk/sites/default/files/publications/education/Playing%20Outdoors.pdf
