Active play allows children to explore the potential of their bodies and how to interact with the outdoors. As kids navigate through nature, they practice motor planning skills needed to explore gross motor activities. Kids build large muscles and improve coordination as they ride, climb, run and jump.
Children build balance (vestibular system) through active play. The inner ear, eyes and brain work together in this coordinated effort. Proprioceptive input — a connection between the muscles and the mind — provides feedback necessary for movement.
