We celebrated Christmas in Florida and we were eager to get back to Toronto to play in the snow. We were disappointed when we discovered almost all the snow was gone when we arrived Toronto. On Saturday it was 14 C /57 F degrees and wonderful spring weather. We sure did enjoy the day but we are not really ready for spring yet. Hopefully we will get some snow soon as I have some wonderful snow play ideas.
Here are my tips for getting families outside all year around.

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
Well, it's that time of year. When my first son was little I did bring him in to a studio to get some pictures taken, but once we got a decent camera I decided that I'd take all of their pictures, and we do it outside, of course.My in-laws have a cranberry bog right behind their house which is also a Christmas tree farm (we got our Christmas tree there last year!) So it's basically one stop shopping for outdoor holiday photography.Add a comment

One year we celebrated Christmas in Norway, my home country. My parents were scratching their heads when my husband and daughter started to fill balloons with water and put them out on the porch to freeze. We then took cookie cutters on cookie trays and buckets and filled them with water.
Every time we were having dinner or hosting a holiday party last year, we would look at the beautiful ice sculptures glowing in the candlelight. It was so easy, cheap, environmentally friendly, educational and so beautiful.Add a comment
