Spring

Geocaching, an urban or rural adventure

I have for a long time wanted to try geocaching with my family. Think of geocaching as a high tech treasure hunt using a GPS instead of a smelly map made of leather with an X drawn on it. It has been an activity that has captured both the young and adult for some time, but there seems to be a surge of treasure hunting with the advent of GPS enabled smartphones.

Easter decoration

Yesterday was time for us to begin preparing for Easter so we started with some outdoor Easter decorations. Since daffodils represent Easter for me, we decided to make some Easter daffodil pots and brought our craft materials outside to the front porch.

Treasure Hunt

treasure1Don’t you just love it when your kids show you how to play a game or do a new activity? My daughter did just that a few weeks ago, after reading and looking at a book called “Treasure Hunts” by Lenny Hort. She decided she was going to make her own treasure map.In this game she hides a treasure and draws a map.

Start your garden

seedfrontEvery year we have the same ritual in our house, when the signs of spring arrive we start with seeds indoors. It never stops to amaze me how much my little girl enjoys watching and look at it every day and comments on how much our seeds have grown. Starting indoors with seeds helps  you get a head start with the growing season and it is nice to see it growing in your windowsill.

How to make videos for web, tips from a filmmaker

By Russell Gienapprussellfilm
Though I work with camera packages that are worth +$100,000, I try to use simple tools when I am doing videos for ActiveKidsClub . Iphones and simple handicams are more than powerful enough for memories and the web. But as you will learn, some of your biggest challenges have nothing to do with picture quality. Add a comment
