Did you know that today's children are spending less time playing outdoors, and more time indoors that at any other time in history?
Free, unstructured play outdoors - particularly in natural spaces - is fast disappearing from our children's lives with worrying effects on their health, wellbeing and learning. Quite simply, there has never been a more important time for parents and educators to get their children playing outdoors.
Which is just what these It's Playtime contributors did last week.
There was nature play for babies over at Baby Time: Staying at Home is For the Birds from The Educators' Spin On It
And glorious muddy fun at Miniature Landscapes from Growing Play
