10 spring outdoor ideas

Are you happy spring is here? So am I, love the smell of the earth and to watch the trees bud and the wonderful spring flowers. Nothing wrong about Mister Frost, but I love that is easier to go outside with the kids, less outdoor wear to put on. Spring has some rituals for me and the kids and most of them are connected to the outdoors.

Make dandelion crowns

How I love spring, and yes, dandelions as well. For me they are a symbol of kids and childhood. Dandelions could be the last flower available in nature, saving kids play in a world where “don’t touch nature”  culture has been taken away from children’s real experiences with nature. A real connection with nature happens from touching, feeling and getting dirty in nature.

Biking a part of our family life

One of the many great gifts my father gave me in life was biking. It’s not because we considered ourselves hardcore bikers, we mainly used the bike as way to get around in the city and to go for family trips together.

I think I have always owned a bike in my life. Not because it was green or it was the healthy living thing to do, it was just an easy and fun way to get around that made me happy. It still makes me happy and it is always great when we are together on a family outing.

I hope your family is enjoying biking as much as we do. Our community of parents has been wonderful to share their reviews about gear and bike trailer/bike seats. (Please notice that none of these posts are sponsored)

Fiddlehead Pizza

Have you ever eaten fiddl before? Before I noticed them in my local store here in Toronto my first spring here in Canada, I didn't even know what they were. Since then I have had a lovely relationship with fiddleheads.

Here is a pizza recipe from my friends over at Norcliff Farms Inc. If you don't have any fiddleheads you can replace it with asparagus. Add a comment
