What do children learn through Active Physical Play? 

Active physical play allows children to use their energy, gives children the chance to develop gross and fine motor skills, to learn new things, and to socialize. 

Physical play also benefits a child’s health and helps prevent childhood obesity. 

Physical play helps a child to develop connections between the nerve cells and the brain. The ideal physical play incorporates play with social interactions and problem solving.
