The Play Outdoors Magazine … Exploring Outdoor Experiences in the Early Years was launched in March 2021. This publication is devoted to sharing articles and ideas about the importance of outdoor play in the lives of children, from a variety of perspectives and writers. Children who have exposure to nature and unique outdoor play experiences across the seasons, have opportunities to connect with nature and thrive in their development in many ways. This magazine is intended to be a resource for adults who influence children’s experiences, play, and learning.
