Games sustain physical and emotional wellbeing of an individual, providing him opportunities for positive social interaction, learning, health and independence. Games are the way children and young people explore the world around them and develop practical skills, allowing them to learn
through curiosity, invention and persistence. Outdoor games are the athletic or sporting games that involve physical activity and are generally played outside in the open.
