Who knew that what I was doing back in my childhood outside was actually helping my cognitive development. It’s unfortunate to see that kids playing outside is something that’s happening less and less. While I work hard to get my kids outside, it’s not always easy.
So imagine my surprise when I found this article. It’s entitled “Climbing a tree can improve cognitive skills, researchers say” from the University of North Florida at Science Daily. Maybe this weekend we’ll go climb some trees.
