Why Kids Should Play Outside

Nowadays, it seems to be like a foreign concept for kids to play outside. Up until around 15 years ago, it was a given that after school, on the weekend, and during school holidays, playing outside is something that all children participated in. But with the advent of personal computers in the home, and with more advanced video games, children found that there was no reason to go outside anymore. Add to this parental concerns about child safety, and now there is a generation of children who suffer from obesity more now than ever in history. There are also children who have poor social and interactive skills. These children who stayed indoors 15 or so years ago are a part of our young work force now. They have poor reasoning skills, poor people skills, and they lack the ability to recognize professional and personal boundaries. All of these are reasons why children should play outside. First and foremost, playing outside forces children to burn off extra energy and fat. Most children are full of energy, and wh...

Kayaks And Canoes - Enjoy The Great Outdoors

As a review of which kayak offers the most enjoyable kayaking experience I decided to compare three distinctively different types of kayak.In order to obtain a true reflection of each kayaks performance I used the same standard TGP paddles when using each boat. I also enlisted the help of two friends to compare notes.The Sevylor Ranger KRC79 inflatable kayak (which is similar in design to a Canadian canoe and can be paddled from a kneeling position), Yak Sport by Ocean Kayak and the Sundance Perception Kayak were the kayaks used for this review. All three boats are of a similar size, class and price range but all three kayaks have their own characteristics, pros and cons.Storage and portability - The inflatable kayak gets maximum points here due to its ability to be packed away in a cupboard space and also its portability requires no additional cost by having to buy additional kayak accessories such as expensive canoe trolleys and roof racks.Both the plastic sit on top and traditional Perception kayak ideally...

So if like us you have these horrible bushes or lots of shape stones in your garden then the more popular inflatable paddling pools might not be for you. Like us though you are in luck beca...

When you are trying to get kids exercising, allowing them to pick the methods of exercise is the best way to get them excited, and to get them off the sofa and moving. You will find that depending on your child's age, gender, and what interests they have, there will be many different sports that might interest them. So, rather than forcing them to join the baseball team, or soccer club, allow your child to pick the sports they want to engage in. By allowing the child to be the decision maker, as a parent you are going to find that this will not only get your kids exercising, but will also allow them to keep up with the activity.
