How do you get your kids outside?

Screens are everywhere these days, and are hypnotic. Between video games, TV, DVDs, computers, ipads and phones kids are constantly watching rather than playing.

Even when playing on apps or games, they are clicking rather than running. This play is also restricted: it happens within a strict framework, unlike outdoors play that is limited only by the imagination.

How do you keep your kids active and outside?

It's tricky sometimes, moreso in winter than summer, but at least we have the beach nearby and a mention of a visit to the playground usually works for us
With two active young boys, and both being the preschool age, it's often more of a case of how to get them back inside....they both really enjoy outdoor play and whilst they have lots of toys and activites to do inside, it can be a battle getting them away from the outdoors. If there's a park, a beach, a playground or an outing, then there's no debate about trying to get them to head out.
I think by enjoying the outdoors together as a family you're demonstrating first hand a healthy form of play and if you put the right limits in place for screen time, then hopefully the right connections will naturally follow.
