I love the park! Especially having four energetic boys! My husband works midnights and so we make our morning’s family time. One of our favorite outings is going to the park with skateboards, footballs and camera in hand. They run and play and I get my own exercise just trying to keep up.
However, I “accidentally” found out something HUGE for us. When we choose the park days the boys do much better in the afternoon when we do school. As I researched this, sure enough there was evidence.
Many therapist explain that the brain becomes more organized and sharp as we use our small and large motor coordination. Who would have thought? Playing helps children learn!
