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.

10 ways to play with ice

Last week we had a few cold days in Toronto, but with little snow. So what do you do when there are freezing conditions but no snow? We play with ice and create art. This is not just for kids, but also for everyone who is a child at heart. This past week has also been fun with all the interaction on Instagram and Facebook, it is great to hear how our readers play with ice and see how their posts can inspirer others to play more with ice.

10 Outdoor play ideas for winter

Happy New Year !

We have had a wonderful holiday in Florida; it is so strange that we have so many different climates on this big continent. Being able to pick your own oranges from a tree and then squeeze orange juice is such a cool thing to do for an outdoor kid from the North.
