There are many health benefits for your children to play outdoors. Not only does it provide exercise and vitamin D, it also stimulates their imagination and promotes problem-solving skills. Many parents today grew up playing outdoors -- riding their bikes, playing in sandboxes and hanging on jungle gyms at the park. More and more kids today spend their time indoors, playing on their tablets and watching TV. Experts say that outdoor play is crucial for the growing health of our children and it’s also a great way to combat childhood obesity. Studies have reported that children who spend time outdoors have better distance vision than children who primarily play indoors. Playing outdoors also reduces stress and not only promotes physical growth but encourages mental and social growth as well. Kids who play with other kids outdoors learn how to problem solve and work together to resolve conflicts on the playground. These are all important skills for your children’s social development.
When deciding to take your kids to the park or beach for some outdoor activities, remember to use lots of sunscreen and shield your children’s eyes from harmful UV rays. Gear them up with quality sunglasses that fit snug on their face and use an eyewear retainer or strap that allows your child to hang the glasses freely around their neck. This way when they run or swing, they can keep their sunglasses close without the worry of losing them. For rugged outdoor play, choose children's eyewear
that are constructed from a sturdy material. We recommend our affordable sunglasses
from the Studio collection, which uses a non-toxic TR-90 plastic material. Our children's sunglasses
are light, flexible and durable -- great for boys and girls -- whether they like to play tag with their friends or build castles quietly in the sandbox. Don’t forget that the lenses are important too! It’s crucial to choose lenses that have UVA and UVB protection. Another key feature would be to choose a lens that is polarized for clarity and shatterproof for safety. All of the pieces in our Studio collection are equipped with these important features!
