Beachcombing- the ultimate treasure hunt

A trip to the beach doesn’t just mean sandcastles and swimming. Some of the most fun I have had with my daughter is just walking down the beach doing some good old fashion beachcombing.The best thing about beachcombing is it is the ultimate treasure hunt. The more you look the more you think you will find something better just a little farther down the beach.

Baby play

 

Summer time is the perfect time to be playing outdoors with your baby. Yes I did say baby. My littlest one will be a year old this month. We've been spending more and more time outside.

Dress code Summer

Dressing for the weather is the key to enjoying the outdoors in all kinds of weather. Summer is time we have been longing for; shorts, swimsuits and dresses. However, remember they often don`t provide your child any protection from the sun.
So when you are going to the park for an extended period of time it is a good idea to dress your child in protective clothing. Comfortable long pants, long-sleeved shirts and broad- brimmed hats offer excellent protection against the sun. Another good idea is to dress in darker colors, darker colors offer more protection against the sun.

Bug hunting

I love worm hunting!

By Andrea LeDuc

There’s nothing like having a wriggly worm in your hand. It totally takes me back to when I was a child. Is there a kid who doesn't like digging in the dirt and finding treasure? Well to a kid a worm or a pretty bug can be that treasure!

Canoeing with Children


Tips and ideas to help introduce children to the wilderness canoeing
By Outdoor Adventure Canada

So often I hear about people giving up canoeing when they have children. When we were expecting the arrival of our son I thought we were going to join the ranks of parents waiting for the children to get older before taking them on a canoe trip. Canoeing does not end for parents of young children and there is no need to send them to the grandparents in order to go tripping. It does change though; here are some tips and tricks to make canoeing a family event.
