May in the Playroom
After a long and cold winter, the children in the playroom have finally been able to go outside to the side yard to play. As a drop-in, it can be challenging to gather a group to head outdoors. There are shoes and jackets to find, bags to pack and children to herd. But despite the time and effort it seems to take to gather everything and everyone, the benefits of outdoor play outweighs any of these challenges. While outside, children have the opportunity to expend some of their energies. Running, shouting and general silliness is now encouraged. Looking for bugs, playing with the dirt and sand, and simply watching the clouds and birds go by are just some of the activities that the children enjoy. As the weather continues to warm up, we hope to spend more and more time in our side yard. Outdoor play is good for the mind, body, and spirit.
