Spring is here, the weather is improving and it’s great for kids to be outside, unless your child is itchy, congested, and miserable due to allergies. Seasonal allergies are rare under age 2 years but very common after that, affecting up to 40% of children.
So what does outside nature time look like? It could be exploring the backyard or park, hiking, gardening, riding bikes, or just sitting under a tree daydreaming. Unstructured time, without a specific plan, encourages a child to get creative and be independent.
