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
Spring hasn't quite sprung yet in many areas of the globe, but the annual phenomenon known as Spring Break is soon here! If you haven't made reservations yet but know you want to grab the kids and get outside, take heed of the following six places to go and adventuresome things to do with the entire family:
Camp in Arizona. Budget is a big concern for many these days, so if hotels and airfare aren't practical this year, pack up the family, the tent, camping gear and hit the road. The warm, sunny state of Arizona is not only packed with tons of hiking and exploring opportunities, there's a camp site to fit every style and budget, from full-hookup RV sites to family tent camping areas. If beautiful lakes and southwestern adventure appeal to you, take your family and check out the Grand Canyon State.
If you are lucky enough to have snow where you live you have so many opportunities for fun outdoor play.
Now in the winter it is important to be in motion when you play outside, so you keep yourself and your kids warm. It is the winter that is our peak season here in activekidsclub.com. There is so much to do; it is only our imagination that stops us.Add a comment
My kids are entering their tweens this year, and I need fresh birthday party ideas. While looking through an outdoor living magazine, I saw an ad for hot tub rental. That’s an awesome kids’ party idea! My tweens will love the chance to enjoy a grown-up activity for a few hours, and I’ll earn cool mom points.
Here’s my plan for hosting a hot tub party for kids. Feel free to modify it to meet your family’s needs!Add a comment
For 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.Add a comment

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?
