Banana bread for cross country skiing trip

bananabreadfrontFor our upcoming cross-country ski trip our oldest decided that she was going to make banana bread to bring along and she was going to make it herself.

When I lived in Norway I decided to make up a batch and see what it was all about. Well, I though I did something wrong or something was bad, as it tasted strange and was not my cup of tea. Then years later I tried someone else’s banana bread and I realized… no, that is what banana bread tastes like. Since there were many other cakes and treats in the world I liked, I never looked back.

Maple syrup
By Russell Gienapp
In the world of food items there are few things that are more taken for granted than maple syrup. How do you explain to a young child the concept of taking 40 bottles of the sap of a tree to get the one bottle of syrup sitting on the breakfast table?

Host a community event for a good cause

You might be wondering what does this have to do with outdoor play? It has everything to do with building an outdoor community and getting people outside for a good cause.

Have a picnic with ham and cheese horns (crescent rolls)

Last Sunday I visited a Norwegian friend in the Toronto area and we went for a hike and sledding trip. On the trip she served us tasty horns filled with ham and cheese. So yummy! Next time we go for an outdoor adventure we are going make these treats before we hit the trail. These horns are very fun and easy to make with your kids.

10 ways to play with ice

Last week we had a few cold days in Toronto, but with little snow. So what do you do when there are freezing conditions but no snow? We play with ice and create art. This is not just for kids, but also for everyone who is a child at heart. This past week has also been fun with all the interaction on Instagram and Facebook, it is great to hear how our readers play with ice and see how their posts can inspirer others to play more with ice.
