Top tips: Encouraging children to get outdoors

For #WorldChildrensDay, we find out the many ways you can use to encourage children outside. 

It’s no secret that spending time outdoors is good for your health, it’s great for your well being and is a real boost for your energy levels. But sometimes getting children outdoors to reap some of these rewards can be easier said than done. 

Youth Adventure Trust have put together some top tips for getting children and young people out enjoying the great outdoors. 

How about making it a game. Buy some camo paint – or make your own out of facecream and mud - and get some camouflage clothes, then get the young people to hide whilst you're out and about. Or set a series of games or challenges along the route. You could even set clues for them to follow and discover the route.
