Why Are Rain Boots Important?

In Oregon we know, playing outside in the rain is often the only way for a small child to get out and play! We also know, playing is how children learn. Exploring, experimenting and being curious are all playful ways children develop & grow through outdoor play.

 

Research shows us that playing outside helps children develop: 

Fine & Gross Motor Skills, Scientific Thinking, Problem Solving and Imagination. 

 

Whether it's going outside for a walk in the rain, practicing skipping rocks on the river or go digging for worms in your backyard,  The Early Learning Hub of Clackamas County wants to encourage all children to explore, have fun, learn, and PLAY!

¿Por qué son importantes las botas de lluvia?

En Oregón, sabemos que jugar al aire libre bajo la lluvia es a menudo la única forma en que un niño pequeño puede salir y jugar. También sabemos que jugar es cómo aprenden los niños. Explorar, experimentar y ser curioso son formas divertidas en las que los niños se desarrollan y crecen a través del juego al aire libre.

 

Las investigaciones nos muestran que jugar al aire libre ayuda a los niños a desarrollar:

Habilidades motoras finas y gruesas, pensamiento científico, resolución de problemas e imaginación.

 

Ya sea que salga a caminar bajo la lluvia, practique saltar rocas en el río o vaya a cavar en busca de gusanos en su patio trasero, The Early Learning Hub of Clackamas County quiere alentar a todos los niños a explorar, divertirse, aprender y JUGAR.
