You might think I’m a cross-country skiing expert since I’m from Norway. Though it is true that cross-country skiing is the national sport of Norway, it’s not like everyone is skiing like they should be the next Bjørn Dæhlie.
For most Norwegians it is more of a lifestyle and a way to get around to enjoy nature. If you ever get a chance to ski in Norway after a snowfall you will notice everyone is outside skiing; from the old to the young or the athletic to the handicapped. Some will even put on their skis for their commute to the office.Add a comment

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.
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…
