    Playing outdoor games is as important as feeding your children good and nutritious food daily. Outdoor games help burn calories and energy and make children immune to many diseases and make them stress free too. Especially during season break or summer holidays, playing outdoor games can be more fun. If parents also get involved with children in outdoor activities then nothing else can be better. For Cross Steps draw a grid of 12 feet x 12 feet on your patio or back yard. Let the players stand in different squares. Turn by turn the child is suppose to move one square at a time, towards a new square. When the child moves ahead he has to cross the square he was standing in.  No one can use an occupied square or the crossed out square. If any player has no new square left to move into, then he is out of the game. Last player standing is declared the winner.

    With advent of new age technology outdoor games are becoming extinct. It is very important to make a child realize that outdoor games are necessary for overall growth of body. While playing Cross Steps player can be asked to hop onto the next square or do a light spot jogging while waiting for turn. A child also gets to become more social when they play in groups and interact with each other. There is so much to learn from nature, which can be possible if a child goes out and plays outdoor games regularly.
