The importance of spending family time outdoors

A Minute with Mme Amy
(April 12, 2019)

Did you know…that in addition to providing physical and mental health benefits to children, spending time outdoors together can also improve family bonds and relationships? This guide from the Children & Nature Network shares some of the current research around “nature time” and includes suggestions of ways to enjoy the outdoors with children from the time they are babies through to the teen years.

The entire Children & Nature website is a wonderful resource as well!
