Kids Paintballing: The Perfect Hobby for 2018

Kids Paintball

In the digital age, where the majority of new and exciting hobbies being offered to children are technology-based, the opportunity to get outdoors for a unique activity like kids paintball should always be embraced.

We have much to be thankful for when it comes to technology. With it, we have been able to completely revolutionise the way we live our everyday lives. Unfortunately, though, it has made us an incredibly lazy generation. Despite fitness and healthy living trends skyrocketing in recent years, there is always going to be the option of sitting indoors, binge-watching TV shows and playing video games. These activities are fun, but too much of them can lead to health issues forming.

As a parent, it’s important to introduce your children to hobbies and showing them the benefit of trying new things. When it comes to excitement, exercise, and an activity that allows kids to make the most of outdoor environments, junior paintball can’t be rivalled. Let’s take a closer at the reasons why kids paintball is the perfect new addition to your little one’s routine.

It’s Important to Limit Screen Time

A recent study has shown that spending too much time using digital devices may be damaging children’s eyes. The evidence suggests that kids who spend at least seven hours a week using video games and computers triple their risk of nearsightedness and myopia. Although this isn’t a definitive answer to whether or not it does cause damage, it’s definitely something that every parent should take note of. Ignoring it could lead to permanent sight problems, which could have easily been avoided by limiting the amount of time your children spend in front of a screen.

If you want to succeed, it’s vital to provide your kids with an alternative that’s engaging and exciting enough to rival video games or computers. Every aspect of junior paintball fits the bill – from adrenaline-fueled action to exploring expertly designed battlefields – and gives you a genuinely appealing substitute for hours in front of a screen.

Time Spent Outdoors is at an All Time Low

Another crucial thing to consider in the digital age is that people (especially children) are spending less and less time outside. Although many would be quick to attribute this to the rise of modern technology, there are also other aspects such as less green spaces due to the build-up of urban areas, as well as more parents being concerned for their children’s safety when outside of the family home.

If your children are spending a lot less time outdoors, it’s definitely something that you should address. Educate them on the benefits of spending more time outside and provide them with appealing alternatives to indoor activities. Kids paintball is the perfect option, as it provides them with an amazing rural environment to explore and authentic combat scenarios, offering excitement that indoor activities fail to replicate. Junior paintball also works best with the use of team tactics, which also benefits your kids by showing them the benefit of teamwork and communicating with others.

Kids Paintball is a Subtle and Effective Form of Exercise

It’s also worth mentioning how children spending less time outside has impacted fitness and increased obesity. This is why introducing them to a new hobby in 2018 is more important than ever – and a day of mini paintball or junior paintball at GO Paintball London is the ultimate experience.

As well as being a unique, energetic and exciting activity, paintball is a fantastic way to keep fit and burn off some of the excess calories from overeating at Christmas. For kids, this is essential due to the obesity issues from spending too much time indoors mentioned above. A day of kids paintball may not be the most conventional way to exercise, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less efficient.

During a day of paintball, you will find yourself covering a lot of ground, sprinting in rapid bursts and dashing between cover – all of which provides an efficient cardio workout. You’ll also be climbing obstacles, carrying equipment and consistently changing stances (which essentially means you’ll be stretching and doing squats a lot). The combination of the two is a phenomenal full-body workout that – thanks to the abundance of adrenaline – is a huge benefit for the health and fitness of your kids.

Junior Paintball is Ideal for Special Occasions

If you’re looking for an activity or day out to treat your children on special occasions such as birthdays, kids paintball is a brilliant choice that’s unique and far from your average day out. Here at GO Paintball London, we cater for a wide range of ages, group sizes and special occasions. If you’re looking for the best paintball party London has to offer, our 50-acre facility with five huge battlefield maps is the ideal environment for an unforgettable day.

As your kids get older, it can be difficult to find activities that they deem suitable for their age, or ‘cool’ enough to undertake. Paintball is an ideal choice that gives them the opportunity to rally some of their friends, explore expertly-designed battlefields, and get the first-hand experience of authentic combat scenarios (especially popular for kids who like to play shooter and action video games).

Do you have children who are looking for a new hobby? Or are you worried that they don’t spend enough time outside? Kids paintball is the perfect activity for exploring the great outdoors, socialising and getting a fantastic workout.
