Make an Advent Calendar

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.

Halloween Outdoor guide

As an immigrant to Canada from the old world, I was reluctant in the beginning to embrace the Halloween tradition. I thought it was only a commercial event meant to sell costumes and candy. That was before I began to understand the true meaning of Halloween.

Leaf Shirt

We had some friends over today in our yard, kind of a rescheduling of events because it was raining last Thursday.  We still got outside on Thursday, but we were unable to do this craft. We gathered leaves and then the kids assembled them, along with sticks and whatever else they wanted, on t-shirts.

THE WALK OF LIFE : Tips for walking to school

By Emily McBurnie

walkingsafetyreflectorsEach weekday morning I get myself and the 2 kids out the door by 8.30 for the walk to school. It is a 20-30 minute uphill hike or 1 mile (1.6 km) to be precise. I was surprised to see just a handful of mums & dads doing the same journey, most opting to get the kids in the car for the 5 minute drive . Of course there are days when I think it would be handy to be in a vehicle, however once we get on our way, the minor complaint soon fades.

Happy Fall ! Fall activity guide

It is that time again, shorter days and less sunlight.  For me, fall is Canada’s number one season.  If you ever think about visiting Toronto make sure you visit in the fall.  Fall in Toronto is warm days and gorgeous nights with beautiful fall foliage and harvest bounty for the farmers markets.
