Social Development refers to the development of interaction with the human world around us, including relationships with others and also the relevant social skills we need to have to lead a meaningful life in our culture or society. Along with physical and cognitive development, outdoor play is an important part fostering the children’s social development. In childhood, children develop their social skills stage by stage. They change from having stranger anxiety as a newborn to be able to feel comfortable to explore independently even when their parents are not next to them when they get older. They also start to imitate the things around them when are being placed in a playground with other children. They imitate one another and stay close together. When putting into a group with other children, they will learn about cooperation and sharing because now they are less self-centred. In an outdoor play environment, children will have an opportunity to occupy a bigger space, making it possible for them to engage in large projects which require teamwork. Also, children learn gradually how to read and respond appropriately to the actions and the behaviours of their playmates who might not be their siblings as opposed to what they do in an indoor setting, i.e., usually playing with their siblings. In an article, it is said that sharing, negotiating, and communication are all important aspects of social development that children learn while playing with other children. Also, the development of friendships helps to build confidence in their abilities. As relationship and interaction with others in our society are imperative for it to function normally, it is of critical importance to let our children develop their social skills in a most conducive setting, i.e., outdoor play. An outdoor play environment is a place where they can relax and feel comfortable and may reduce their emotional stress and strain. Through outdoor play, children are likely to have the opportunities to express their emotions and feelings byways of shouting, running, joking, teasing, etc. Giving them the outdoor playing space, children can create their things to express their emotions and this is an integral part for them to develop a healthy sense of self-esteem and self-accomplishment. Additionally, properly designed and implemented outdoor activities might become a place whereby these children could relax and get away from the anxiety and unhappiness that they are experiencing in their family.
