Caesar salad

One of our favorite family restaurants also serves Caesar salad, and to my surprise my daughter now adores their version. She has been asking me for some time to teach her how to make a Caesar salad at home. So, this is our kid friendly version of Caesar salad.

Newfoundland, nature is never far away


Newfoundland -- Just the name makes me think of Vikings, salt and wind. The Vikings settled in Newfoundland or ‘Vinland’ as they called it in 1001. In 1960 Helge Ingestad and Anne Stine Ingestad discovered the first Norse Village in North America. In 1978 L’anse aux Meadows was named a World Heritage site by UNESCO.

When I started to plan our trip, going to L’anse aux Meadows was naturally on the top my ‘to do list’. But a quick look at the map made us change our mind. With only a one-week mini-vacation, we felt we had too little time. Instead we chose to spend our trip in St. Johns, Trinty Peninsula and Twillingate.

Make heart cupcakes for Valentines Day

We have been so busy lately with school. There has been so many activities and playing outside that we have had little time for baking. One of my 6-year-old daughter’s favorite recipes is making and decorating cupcakes. Yesterday we made heart shaped cupcakes using something out of her toy box.

A kicksled great for winter adventures

Today Shawna tells us how her family uses her kicksled/spark here in Canada. The spark ("kick" in Norwegian) was orginally from Norway and commonally used as way to get from A to B and for recreational use in Scandinavia.

When did your family start using a kicksled?
We got our first kicksled 5 years ago. We just had our third child and wanted some more wintertime activities to do with 3 small children.

Winter thermos picnic

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.
