Snow tag

If you are lucky enough to have snow where you live you have so many opportunities for fun outdoor play.

Now in the winter it is important to be in motion when you play outside, so you keep yourself and your kids warm. It is the winter that is our peak season here in activekidsclub.com. There is so much to do; it is only our imagination that stops us.

How to Host an Awesome Kids’ Hot Tub Party

My kids are entering their tweens this year, and I need fresh birthday party ideas. While looking through an outdoor living magazine, I saw an ad for hot tub rental. That’s an awesome kids’ party idea! My tweens will love the chance to enjoy a grown-up activity for a few hours, and I’ll earn cool mom points.

Here’s my plan for hosting a hot tub party for kids. Feel free to modify it to meet your family’s needs!

Banana bread for cross country skiing trip

bananabreadfrontFor our upcoming cross-country ski trip our oldest decided that she was going to make banana bread to bring along and she was going to make it herself.

When I lived in Norway I decided to make up a batch and see what it was all about. Well, I though I did something wrong or something was bad, as it tasted strange and was not my cup of tea. Then years later I tried someone else’s banana bread and I realized… no, that is what banana bread tastes like. Since there were many other cakes and treats in the world I liked, I never looked back.

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?
