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.Add a comment

Our simple Holiday gift guide for outdoor kids. A little more in-depth gift guide is needed if you are really serious about your outdoor play in all kinds of weather. You need to be smart like a polar bear kid. Please note this list is for only very hardcore kids and parents/educators playing outside in all kinds of weather.Add a comment
However you celebrate this Holidays season, it is an excellent time of year to do some craft together with your family. In my family we are celebrating Christmas. I remember my childhood with found memoires of gingerbread cookies and making Christmas decorations with my mom. I feel so lucky to continue this tradition with my children today.
Nature offers some great opportunities for making Christmas ornaments; in our family we use natural elements in our Christmas creations. Of course…
Santa Lucia day Decemeber 13th, a day we observe in our family as it is a fun Scandinavian celebration, especially for children. My daughter loves it so much that today she will share it with her school. We are going to have a traditional Lucia parade (well, with only three people) and hand out saffron buns to her class..Add a comment
Who doesn’t love hot chocolate? Whenever my family is out enjoying winter activities we makes sure to have a full thermos with us. This year I am giving my hot chocolate recipe, in kit form, for gifts this year to friends, teachers and outdoor lovers.
It takes an extra step, but I prefer to make hot chocolate from melted semi sweet chocolate chips rather than coco powder. I think it just tastes better than powder.Add a comment
