Outdoor Play for Healthy Little Minds

Today's children spend much less time playing outdoors than their counterparts did 50 years ago. Outdoor play in the community is in decline and, at the same time, mental health issues are rising rapidly. This introduction from the new book Outdoor Play for Healthy Little Minds: Practical Ideas to Promote Children’s Wellbeing in the Early Years, includes a framework for establishing a child's wellbeing, definitions of play and observations of outdoor play at settings in Scotland, Thailand, Wales, France, England, and the Netherlands.
