Kids Stay Free at Orion Hotels22 February 2019
“How long do children spend their time outside?”
“On average, children aged 10 to 16 now spend only 12.6 minutes a day on vigorous outdoor activity compared with 10.4 waking hours being relatively motionless”. Playing outside is fantastic for helping children practise their physical abilities. Exercises such as running, jumping, skipping and playing ball games not only strengthen little muscles, but they can also help with gross motor skills, hand-eye coordination and overall health and well-being. If you are a parent, then you would definitely understand the importance of kids playing outside and having the time of their lives. After all, you were once in their shoes, where your imagination just takes over and the world was your oyster. Nowadays if something doesn’t have a screen then children don’t seem to be interested. Luckily at Orion Hotels & Resorts, we want all the kiddies to get some fresh air, enjoy the great outdoors and have some good old fashioned fun. We are very much a family orientated hotel group and we are always looking to provide an experience rather than just providing our guests with accommodation or a room.
