Make a bird nest

A simple and fun spring activity is to make a bird nest. We try to do this activity every year when we are out hiking,biking and playing in one of Toronto's park. Later in the season we will visit the nest and see if any birds did take it over this spring.

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.

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?
