CAP Tulsa’s early childhood education programs can help you strengthen your relationship with your child while preparing her for kindergarten. Our Teachable Moments provide tips and information to help you connect with your child and make sure they are developmentally on track.
When you spend time engaging in outdoor activities with your child, you are helping them grow! Playing outside is important for your child’s development and bond with the natural world.
There are many fun activities you can do outside together such as:
- Go on a nature walk
- Have a picnic
- Build something together out of objects found in nature
- Pretend to be different animals outside and talk about how they move in nature
- Plan a scavenger hunt outside and look for different colors and shapes
- Start a garden together
- Play in the dirt
Encouraging outdoor play helps your child’s imagination and creative development. It also helps them to stay fit, active and healthy.
