Do you recall the last time your children played outdoors? If you don’t remember your kids heading outside to play an old-fashioned game of hide-and-seek or patintero, you’re not alone as many parents are lamenting the fact that their children are spending more time playing with their smartphones or computers. As a result, a survey has revealed that the Philippines is one of the unhealthiest countries in Asia as 30% of parents admit that their children don’t get enough exercise. Often, the culprits of this unhealthy lifestyle are being too engrossed in computer games, watching online videos, and overuse of social media. By living a sedentary lifestyle, Pinoy kids are missing out on the benefits of being in nature, but you can improve
matters by designing a garden that your family will enjoy. By improving your outdoor space, you can create a garden that will encourage your loved ones to spend more time enjoying the sunshine and fresh air. Here are a few
tips to help you design a family friendly garden.
Create Zones In Your Garden
If you happen to have a reasonably large backyard, it may be a great idea to create zones in your garden. Divide your outdoor space into several sections, such as a sitting area, an active play section, a flower or vegetable garden section, and the like. Doing so makes your garden a lot more interesting to young ones and increases the number of outdoor
activities you can do with your kids.
