Once upon a time (About 6 years ago) there was a Norwegian woman and her daughter. They were all alone in a frozen empty city park. She just wanted her daughter to have other children to play with like she did when she was a kid, outside in all kinds of weather. She even resorted to bribery, enticing passing by parents and their children to stop for hot chocolate, coffee and homemade Norwegian waffles.Add a comment
In European folklore February has been a fertility month for humans of forest and fields long before we got St. Valentine's feast ordered by the pope in 496.
I hope you and your family is making Valentine cards for your friends and loved ones. Here are a few ideas to connect you and your family to the Valentine tradition and the outdoors.
It is snowing in Toronto today. Some may think that is proof of the picnic season being officially over. Of course, that is not true for us at Activekidsclub.com and for you. Many of our most memorable picnics have been alfresco, in the snow.
In our outdoor playgroups, the snacks and picnics are a very important part of the gathering. Bringing some good food and some hot chocolate is an important treat after your explorers have a little hike or are just out for some good old fashion play.Add a comment
Winter is here and most of us are spending more time inside.This winter try using food and drinks as way to get outside. It is such a simple magical thing to have a hot chocolate after a skate or a sledding trip. Use your cooking time as part of your next adventure. It can often be as important as the adventure itself.Add a comment
While we are waiting for the light
It’s cold and freezing, maybe even borderline to be too cold to be outside. Some people take advantage of the cold, and make big beautiful ice hotels, I would love to stay one night in the Ice Hotel in Québec or in Sweden where I might get lucky enough to see the northern lights, but you have to pay a lot of money to stay there for a night. Ice hotels are an example of brilliant architecture and art that will melt away in the spring. Well a stay there might just be a dream for me, but it gave me some great inspiration to make a mini ice castle with my kids. It is a great way to utilize the freezing temperatures for making some ice art.Add a comment
