Debra’s Backyard Play Space

I have known Debra since we both rented apartments in the same neighborhood in the city of Toronto. Our daughters became best friends when they joined my first outdoor playgroup. (This was also the start of Activekidsclub.com)

Today we both live in houses in a different area in the city and Debra has created quite a haven for both kids and adults. Debra also runs an outdoor playgroup in a neighborhood called The Beach.

Some cool treats: Ice cream and ice pops

Icepop2It is summer and ice cream season is here, we have fun making it with our Play and Freeze ice cream maker. Making popsicles is a childhood favorite for many, but in the past our family has only used fruit juice for our popsicles, but finally the ice pop trend has hit our household and we have started to make ice pops out of the fruit and not just the juice. It tastes so good and it is fun and easy for kids to make.
