Daily outdoor play is vital for the well-being of all of us. Fresh air, exercise, and unstructured play bring a wealth of physical and mental health benefits, as well as opportunities for learning and social-emotional growth. Plus, it can be as simple as walking out your door — no need for elaborate planning and preparations!
In this time of extra stress and upheaval, getting outside every day is especially valuable. At the same time, there are many new challenges to making it happen — from the need for social distancing, to accommodating new remote learning and working schedules, and beyond. Free Forest School offers resources to help.
