Camp food fun for kids

girl by the lake We had a wonderful camping trip at Pukaskwa National Park. It was everything I was longing for. It got us lots of wilderness and some great hiking opportunities. Though I love to be outside in the city, I love to get outdoors in the wilderness. (I live in the fourth largest city in North America) Add a comment

Teaching your kids a swimming culture: swim with your kids

Yesterday my toddler had a wonderful time in the pool. She loved to jump in the pool and even swim a little bit. I talked to another mom teaching her child to swim at the pool. She told she was a swimming instructor and she told me that she wished more parents were swimming with their children before they started swimming lessons, as playing in the water and being comfortable in the water is the first step in learning how to swim.

Camping in Ontario

Agawa Rock Pictographs
Last summer my family went camping in Northern Ontario to Pukaskwa National Park. It was a far away destination from Toronto; a 14 hour drive and that is only one way. We enjoyed the road trip through Ontario to Puskawa and especially the stop at Agawa Rock Pictographs, a half kilometer mini scenic hike. It was so neat to see pictographs up close.

How to make your own soap bubbles solution


By Kari Svenneby
What a simple joy soap bubbles can be for children. It is so beautiful and joyful to see children’s fascination with chasing them and seeing them get excited over making something so perfect. (Such a beautiful color and shape.) Soap bubbles and soap films demonstrate mathematic symmetry and natural science and may be one of the world’s best and cheapest toys for children.
