In Scotland, this means playing outside in all weathers.
The change in temperature and surrounding environment is a treasure trove of experiences and play opportunities that are vital to development and enjoyment.
For many children, opportunities to play freely in their local communities are reducing.
Spring is a wonderful time to explore your community and natural environment — get out and play!.
Playing outdoors is essential for our children and young people to understand, value, enjoy and protect our natural world.
