Early childhood education is the initial stage of human education, and it is an important cornerstone for future higher education. In order to ensure the healthy development of the body and mind in the early childhood, and cultivate a healthy and uplifting psychology, it is necessary to add game education to the actual early childhood education. At this stage, a series of game projects for young children have been included in the scope of educational programs. Games, especially outdoor games, are an important activity that is in line with children's happy and independent development, and promote the continuous improvement of their intelligence and physical strength. In addition, games are also popular entertainment activities for young children, which are in line with the growth and development characteristics of young children and can create more joy for them. In the game, each child will be fully respected and effectively promote the construction of their mental health.

Play is a child's instinct. The famous scholar Chen Heqin once mentioned: "Children are born to be active and play games." It can be seen that playing games is a child's instinct.

2 .Main points of outdoor game application

2.1 Create a good game environment

In the selection of outdoor game equipment, attention should be paid to diversification, to meet the child's actual growth education as the starting point, as far as possible to choose the game equipment that can inspire children's interest. In addition, in the selection of some game equipment, children can make appropriate choices such as making their own hands to improve their hands-on ability, such as making kites and throwing sandbags. At the same time, it is also possible to open vegetable and fruit plantations outdoors, encourage children to participate in vegetable planting, etc., and cultivate their patience and love through daily care of fruits and vegetables.

2.2 Science and interest cultivation

The development of outdoor games is mainly carried out in the form of sports games. Actually, according to different weather conditions and the personal conditions of young children, sometimes role play and other intellectual development game projects can be interspersed in different outdoor games. In addition, scientific outdoor game activities are of great significance to improve children's basic activity and athletic ability and improve their physical fitness. For example, in the tortoise and hare race game project, in order to increase the fun and authenticity of the game before the game starts, wear suitable and interesting props for the children, and use large blocks to build such as the finish line and the award podium. Children wearing cute and interesting costumes can greatly stimulate children's interest and encourage them to participate in the game. Collaborating to build props and podiums can effectively promote children's teamwork ability and so on. It can be seen that the scientific setting of game links can cultivate different personal abilities. Interesting game session settings can effectively enhance children's interest in games and compete to play the role of the game. In addition, according to the characteristics of the child's personal development and movement in the activity, control the amount of activity in the game.

2.3 Pay attention to individual differences

For kindergarten teachers, they should be fully aware of the differences in the performance characteristics of different kindergarten individuals. This also requires relevant teachers to be able to grasp the direction of their psychological changes based on the child's position in real time. The actual teacher is not only the leader of the game, but also a childlike game companion. Children who are usually timid, inferior, and do not like sports should be encouraged to participate in the game, and for students who encounter difficulties, they can be appropriately enlightened to solve the problems step by step. For example, in the cross-river game project, the teacher can adjust the actual width of the actual river according to the individual abilities of different children, so that for children with stronger personal abilities, the river channel can be set wider to promote their further improvement of personal abilities; For children with weaker abilities, the river can be set narrower to help them successfully cross the river, and at the same time enhance their self-confidence to create a good activity atmosphere. In addition, teachers as children's playmates can also join the game in person, increase the closeness to the children, so as to better understand the growth and development characteristics of each child, and lay the foundation for later games and education.

2.4 Integration of safety education into games

Childhood is an important part of the continuous improvement of the child's bone growth, motor system and nervous system. Strengthening game exercises can effectively promote their growth and development. At the same time, we should also pay attention to their mental health education and improve their self-protection awareness. Outdoor games often have a larger playing field and more equipment, so there are more potential dangers. Under the premise of actually carrying out game activities, unsafe factors should be avoided as far as possible. Before the activity, the teacher should promptly convey the rules of the game and the points of attention to the game to the children to improve their self-prevention awareness. The activity equipment should be checked in advance to ensure its reliable work; children should pay attention to the timely increase or decrease of clothing according to their activity. In addition, in the whole game activity link, the staff should be arranged to conduct timely inspections, and unsafe actions in the children's games should be found in time to stop them. Through play and communication with children, understand their inner changes and carry out necessary safety guidance and safety education. For example, some children like to throw stones, and the staff should stop them in time when they find out. In order to properly guide the children’s curiosity, they can guide them to make paper planes by themselves, and use paper planes instead of throwing stones to add fun to the game. On the one hand, it is easy for children to accept, on the other hand, it can also cultivate children's practical ability.
