Aside from offering babycare and organic baby products, BabyOrganix is an advocate of safe, healthy, and natural living among families, especially in children. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected outdoor activities for many people. We believe that getting outside can be beneficial to our physical and mental health as well as that of our family.

There are a lot of benefits to being outside. It provides an emotional boost and can make you feel less nervous, anxious, frustrated, and depressed. Sunlight will also provide vitamin D to our body. However, with all the things happening in the world today, going outside must be done with safety precautions. So here are some examples of outdoor activities for the whole family and important things you need to keep in mind and remind your children before you put on your shoes and head outdoors.

5 Examples of Outdoor Activities for Kids and Parents

  1. Play a Backyard Game

Teach your kids to play classic outdoor games like hide-and-seek, freeze tag, and other similar games, and see if they can come up with their own versions. Backyard games are a great choice as it prevents your children and family to get in contact with other people when outside.

  1. Take a walk

Walking outside is great for exercise, fun, and family bonding, whether it’s a quick stroll around the block or a strenuous hike in the woods. Play a game when you’re out and about to keep the kids entertained and active.

  1. Ride a bike

Aside from being a convenient mode of transportation, bicycling is an enjoyable outdoor activity for the entire family.

  1. Plant a garden

Outdoor activities for kids don’t have to be all about having fun. Put them to work in the garden if you can. They can rake, dig, plant, and water the garden. If you don’t have your own yard, you can do it on pots. 

  1. Bounce and Swing

Since children are open-ended, playgrounds and backyard swing sets make great outdoor activities for them. Kids think up their own games and role play, merging their imaginations with their physical ability.

  • Always bring and wear face masks

If you’re out in public or with people who don’t live in your home, make sure everyone in your family wears a mask (for children 2 years old or older). Ensure that your child is wearing their masks properly and securely. However, wearing a mask may be difficult for some children. If your child finds it difficult, you might want to consider other options.

  • Practice physical distancing

Make sure your child and everyone else in your household stay at least 6 feet away from people who don’t live with you, especially those who are sick, coughing, or sneezing. When going outside avoid going to crowded places like shopping malls, markets, and such especially when you have your children with you.

  • Cover the mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing

Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or a clean towel while coughing or sneezing, throw away your tissue in the nearest trash can, and wash your hands. Encourage your child and the rest of the family to do the same.
