Summer

Let’s Play old fashion games

I remember my childhood summer as endless play in our street. We would play from morning to night. It is great to see the same games now being played by my daughter and her friends. Let your children play in your community and make sure that you give your kids some great summer memories. Here are some of our favorite activities to play this summer.

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.

"Sea, Shell, Salt"


Seashell craft

By Kari Svenneby
One simple joy the seaside offers is collecting seashells. I used to have quite a collection of them as child. I guess I never grew up because I still enjoying collecting shells as an adult and have quite a collection in my home. There is something meditative in collecting shells by the shore. It amuses me to see that my daughter also likes it as much as I do.

Let’s go strawberry picking


By Kari Svenneby

Sure you can get fresh strawberries all year around, but nothing beats the taste of local strawberries in season. It is a sure sign that summer and sunshine is here to stay.

I hope you go to your local Farmer’s Market and find strawberries grown in your area, but why not go to one of the local farms and check out what fresh really means.

How to make your own soap bubbles solution


By Kari Svenneby
What a simple joy soap bubbles can be for children. It is so beautiful and joyful to see children’s fascination with chasing them and seeing them get excited over making something so perfect. (Such a beautiful color and shape.) Soap bubbles and soap films demonstrate mathematic symmetry and natural science and may be one of the world’s best and cheapest toys for children.

Sand Play

Nice weather and sun finally! Beach and lazy days…

Did you know that through sand play children develop physical development, social skills, cognitive development, mathematical skills, science concepts and language skills?
All we adults need to do is to encourage and supervise their play. There is a lot of stuff you can do with the sand. Well, some times it is nice to be like a child and again and dig in the sand, and see what you come up with.
