Some of the best childhood memories are made outside playing with friends, inventing new fun games and exploring the environment. But, unfortunately more and more kids would rather stay indoors and play video games or watching TV, rather than get out and make some wonderful memories with friends. Spending a lot of time in front of the computer can lead to bad posture, damaged vision, weight gain and these are just some of the negative effects that kids can experience. If your kids like to play video games and spend most of their time indoors, now it's the perfect time to get them outside and help them experience the real beauty of childhood. Summer is here, nature is blooming and the golden sunshine practically invites you to spend more time outdoors.
Doing fun outdoor activities like riding a scooter can spark an interest in kids to spend more time outside. In fact scooters are one of the best outdoor toys for children of all ages and can be very beneficial for their growth and development. Riding a scooter is all about properly balancing your body on the wheels and by learning how to do this your kids can improve their coordination and develop great motor skills. Moreover, scooting around on the lovely summer sunshine means that your kids would get lots of vitamin D from the golden sun rays which is vital for healthy bone and muscle development. Aside from these health benefits, scooters can boost kids' confidence and help them be more social. Outside they can meet new friends, be creative inventing games with their scooters, learn to love nature and take care of the environment.
To make sure your kids enjoy their new outdoor toy and easily learn how to ride you should choose the right scooter model that would suit their age, body shape and weight. Models for small children come with three wheels, while a scooter for big kids would usually have two. A popular three-wheeled model is the Mini Micro which offers enhanced stability and is ideal for toddlers and children aged 4 to 6. One of the popular scooter for big kids is the Micro Sprite which boosts a modern Swiss design along with an adjustable handlebar designed to make maneuvering on two wheels a comfortable and enjoyable experience. To make sure you kids are completely safe when riding their scooters don't forget to get them protective gear like helmets, knee pads and wrist guards.
