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.

"På tur": Hiking food

When I grew up in Norway we would always go for hikes every Sunday. In the winter it would be cross-country skiing.  Going for ‘på tur’ is almost a cultural event for Norwegians. It could translate to mean going for a walk or a field trip or hiking, but that would just be the literal translation and not quite give the full meaning, but it always use of active transportation and a lookout for nature outdoors.

How to dress for winter

No bad weather, only bad clothing
Dressing right for the weather is the key to enjoying outdoor adventures both for adults and children. For the active outdoor adult, it has long been the consensus that layering is the best system for comfort and warmth. With multiple layers you can adjust the combination to the weather and the level of exertion and changes in temperature.

Put away the Toys, and Get Outside

By Nancy Ripton
My sons get more toys in a year than I had in my entire life but most of them sit in boxes untouched. The few that they do make time for–Lego and Star Wars–can keep them busy for hours if bedtime is near, but to little to abate mid-day boredom.

Fall gardening: collect seeds

nasturiumfrontIn our family we have collected seeds from vegetables many times, but we have not yet done a real collecting of seeds in the fall. It is one of the activities that I keep planning to do with my kids but I keep forgetting. Collecting seeds are a great activity for kids and adult in the fall and can easily be done at school.
