I was just having a read of one of the links posted on the weekly roundup (https://www.stack.com/a/the-shocking-phenomenon-that-shows-just-how-movement-starved-modern-kids-really-are?fbclid=IwAR1mQp9by8yLHvGaGFni0zWX916YeDSujsrgWLSfJhJUsiGnoB2Ww67sfrI) and it got me thinking about the 1000 Hours Outside philosophy/ challenge that I’ve been following on IG (https://1000hoursoutside.com/index.html/). Basically, there is a theory that little kids need 1000 hours of outside time and play for optimal physical and neurological development.

My kids are pretty lucky because both our school and kindergarten provide lots of opportunities for outside play and physical activity, we also have a decent yard and they’re able to ride bikes and kick balls etc so I think they get plenty of chances to move their bodies but I know lots of kids aren’t so fortunate.

So, how much outside time do your little people get and do you think it would be anywhere near 1,000 hours per year?
