The great outdoors

Are your kids getting enough time out- side? A survey com-
missioned by the makers of Claritin® of 5,000 American parents of children aged 5-13 found that 81% agreed their children are excited to be outside — yet 55% are wor- ried their kids aren’t spending enough time outside.
Getting outside isn’t just good for your kids’ mental and physical health — it’s an excellent way for families to bond and create memories together. When surveyed, 78% of parents said that some of their favorite child- hood memories are of playing outside, with 66% revealing they want to recreate those memories with their children.
While more than half (55%) of parents admit their kids spend more time outside now than pre-pandemic times, 72% acknowledge they’d spend more time outside if their personal outdoor space was more exciting.
Not sure where to start? The Outsideologist Project, from the makers of Clari- tin®, offers many ideas to encourage children to spend more time playing outside — whether it’s in your own back- yard, local park or anywhere in between. Below are tips on how you can make your out- door space more exciting and engaging with fun activities the whole family will enjoy.

   memories of playing sports — catch, kicking around a soccer ball or shooting hoops with your parents? Many kids develop a passion for sports from their parents. You can nurture their interests by reg- ularly playing different sports with them.
While you may not have enough people to play teams, you can teach your kids the fundamentals and help im- prove their skills. Turn your lawn, backyard, or even the park into a mini training camp. For example, if your children are interested in soccer, you can designate sections of the yard or field for different skills, like dribbling around cones, scoring a goal and passing the ball.
There are plenty of back- yard games your kids can enjoy this summer and be- yond. The tried-and-true classics like tag, water bal- loon fights and hide and seek are always a hit, but you can
also try fun creative games as well.
If your children like to play pretend, you can make their day by creating a treasure hunt so your little pirates can go exploring. Hide a few small prizes in your backyard, draw up a map with clues or challenges and set your kids off on a great adventure.
You can also create a back- yard obstacle course with cones, pool noodles, hula hoops or any other materials you may have. Bend the pool noodles or cardboard boxes to make tunnels or hurdles, and place hula hoops, or use chalk to create hopscotch- like obstacles. If you have slides, incorporate those into the course for more challeng- ing obstacles.
