I remember my childhood pre- Christmas time and my advent calendar. Now that I’m a mother myself, I love to create and carry-on traditions for my children. The holiday time is such a great time to create new family traditions. For this year’s Advent calendar, our family was inspired by nature. If you have followed me a little before, you know I have a special love for bringing nature inside whenever I get the chance.
No bad weather, only bad clothing
Dressing right for the weather is the key to enjoying outdoor adventures both for adults and children. For the active outdoor adult, it has long been the consensus that layering is the best system for comfort and warmth. With multiple layers you can adjust the combination to the weather and the level of exertion and changes in temperature.
We have had great fun in our outdoor playgroup lately. Five years after my first outdoor playgroup with my first-born daughter, I’m starting a new group in a new neighborhood with my second daughter. Last Monday we had fun collecting pinecones on our hike and decorating them.Add a comment
I don’t know if you remember my advise about planting Kale for your fall garden. Anyways, our kale has been growing well and yesterday it was time to harvest some of it. My daughter came home from school and she picked the kale and made kale chips with me. If didn’t grow kale in your garden this fall, you can get it in your local farmers market.Add a comment
What else than fall leaves better symbolize nature play?
A pile of colorful leaves on the ground in the autumn is the stuff dreams are made of. There is so much you can do with leaves, both as materials for arts and crafts, but also as an activity for kids. A big pile of leaves is like a magnet for kid.Add a comment
