To Chariot or not to Chariot

The Chariot is one of the options out there for active families.
By Heidi Ahrens 
When it comes to transporting children there are a lot of choices out there. As a family you sometimes feel like you need an umbrella stroller for the car, a good sturdy jogging stroller for expeditions, not to mention a stroller that is car seat compatible, one that is great for airports. So what is a family to do if they also want to bike with their child or Nordic ski?

Rainy Day with Kristen

Read how Kristen in Halton Family Outdoor Playgroup enjoys a rainy day, This is part of our April Showers blog contest for outdoor playgroups.

I like rainy days especially, when it rains from morning to night.  The world feels cozy to me, with the clouds being so close it is like they give us permission to go slowly and enjoy what they bring.  In my house rainy days come with excitement.  Excitement for mud pies!

Teachers - Take Chains Off Kids: Put Them On Bikes

By Kevin Gaudet

Don’t Toronto teachers have better things to do than call me at home to tell me they are afraid that my 8 and 10 year old kids aren’t safe riding their bikes to school? Isn’t it my job to make that decision, not theirs?

April Showers 4 activities for rainy days

Don’t be sad if it is raining outside; remember that rain is going to give us May flowers. I’m convinced that if it is good for the flowers and the soil it is also good for us. Recently, a magazine interviewed me about how children deal with being outside in all kinds of weather. The question reminded me that I have yet to meet a child who didn’t love puddles. I think children learn from us adults that rainy days and mud are “yucky”. Do you remember your best childhood memory? Maybe it was set in the middle of a big muddy puddle. My favorite memory was making channels and little streams out of puddles.
