An important scientific study met with the conclusion that children find symbolic values in natural elements and this benefits them with greater creativity (Titman 1994).Evidence has put forth to the scientific knowledge a strong relationship between outdoor games and cognitive development. Play results in improvement in many personality traits of crucial importance and this includes the attention, attitudes, planning skills, memory, creativity, and language development (Pepler, 1982) in the children.
Concentration, an important constituent for the development of child, declines following prolonged exposure to classrooms (Pellegrini and Davis, 1993). Thus, this gives roof to the need of playgrounds and outdoor games for the instillation of the lost concentration. Playgrounds, the main instillers of self-confidence and self-esteem need to replicate nature.

Teachers, the ideal of the children can contribute significantly to the addition of confidence and deletion of shyness in the children. School games, sports, physical exercises and many more practical efforts add to the development of motor skills in the children (Grahn, et al. 1997), which subtracts the loss of confidence that results by the presence of disease and disorder.
