Hey parents! How many minutes (or hours) do you encourage your kids to play outside or be physically active? I just want to make sure my daughter is playing as much as she should be, because she sometimes has trouble falling asleep!

I allow my kids to play in play houses for an hour plus the running and other activities when we're out. It's super effective if you want your child to have a sound sleep when you get home.

I think the best time is during morning . Maybe 1-2 hrs would be okay . Dont let them be exhausted to much to avoid getting sick .

At least 30mins to 1 hour daily. You can also divide it like 30mins in the morning and 30mins in the afternoon.

2 hours max. Make sure it's 9am or earlier because sunlight is still healthy during those hours.

I let them go out and play for 1 to 2 hours. That is provided they had a noon nap.
