Here at Go Ape we think we already knew but fresh research has proved: ‘Children prefer to play outdoors than watch TV‘.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could allow the young freedom to roam outdoors and play until the sun sets? We know it’s hard to allow kids to play on their own nowadays with busy streets and strange goings on, but here’s some tips to maximise fun in the great outdoors.
Heading out to the park and allowing your child to do the things you did is crucial for their development – and, most importantly, it’s fun! Collecting conkers, climbing trees and creating camps from what you can find are just some of the childhood memories that will never be forgotten. Join in with their adventures and play – it’s a break away from everyday stresses and you can never have that time again!
Hours together as a family are key so why not get your tribe out of the house for some family tree time? Getting up in the forest canopy on our Tree Top Adventure brings the family together like nothing we’ve seen. Trust us, just a few hours at some of the UK’s most beautiful forests on our Tree Top Junior experience and the kids won’t have missed their Playstation.
Here’s a quote that captures all that is childhood play: “Don’t you wish you could take a single childhood memory and blow it up into a bubble and live inside it forever?”
