10 Reasons Why Your Kids Need Fresh Air and Exercise with Outdoor Activities like Paintball, Laser Tag, Nerf, Gelball and Airsoft

Kids need to get outside and play.

As parents, we all want what’s best for our children. With the increasing amount of screen time and stationary activities, encouraging kids to get outside, move around, and engage in physical activity is more important than ever. That’s where the Yorkshire Outdoor Activity Park comes in. Our park offers a wide range of outdoor activities, including paintball, laser tag, nerf, gelball, and airsoft, that provide a fun and engaging environment for kids to get fresh air, exercise, and make lasting memories with friends and family.

Here are 10 reasons kids should get outside and participate in activities like Paintball, Laser Tag, Nerf, Gelball and Airsoft. Activities that we offer at the Yorkshire Outdoor Activity Park:

Boosts Physical Health:

Outdoor activities like paintball, laser tag, nerf, gelball, and airsoft require kids to run, jump, crawl, and engage in other physical movements, which helps to improve their overall fitness and health. This is Call of Duty for real (Almost), the difference is that your kids are getting exercise and they don’t even know it.

Develops Coordination and Agility

These activities also help kids develop their coordination and agility as they dodge, duck, and manoeuvre through the game maps.

Increases Confidence

Playing outdoor activities can help to build kids’ confidence as they take on new challenges and push themselves to their limits. Remember when you were young, are your kids getting the same experiences you had growing up?

Enhances Social Skills

Outdoor activities provide a fun and engaging environment for kids to interact with their peers and develop their social skills. Tantrums are not allowed, everyone has to play well together, it’s part of growing up.

Promotes Teamwork

All of our outdoor activities are team-based, which helps to foster a sense of teamwork and collaboration among children. A team that works well together always comes out on top.

Teaches Strategy

Activities like paintball, laser tag, and airsoft require players to think strategically and work together to achieve their goals, which helps to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Someone has to take the lead, and some have to follow, but the most interesting players are those who take over when all is going wrong.

Provides Fresh Air and Exercise

Spending time outdoors and engaging in physical activity helps to improve kids’ mental and physical well-being, providing a much-needed break from screens and the internet.

Encourages Adventure

Outdoor activities offer a sense of adventure and excitement that kids don’t typically experience daily, encouraging them to step outside their comfort zones and try new things. Again, remember when you were young, where you used to play and what you got up to. Kids need space and adventure or they will end up growing up and becoming politicians or traffic wardens.

Boosts Mental Health

Spending time outdoors and participating in physical activity has been shown to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression in children. Mental well-being is essential after COVID-19 and the lockdowns. If your child was 10 in lockdowns, they would have spent 20% of their life isolated. That’s food for thought.

Creates Lifelong Memories

Participating in outdoor activities with friends and family provides a unique bonding experience that creates lasting memories for kids to cherish for years to come. I am sure you can remember your experiences when you were young. You can bet they were all experiences.

Getting out in the countryside is so important these days. Book an event and have some fun!! – You are only young once.
