10 Outdoor play ideas for winter

Happy New Year !

We have had a wonderful holiday in Florida; it is so strange that we have so many different climates on this big continent. Being able to pick your own oranges from a tree and then squeeze orange juice is such a cool thing to do for an outdoor kid from the North.

Make Christmas cookies for the birds

suetcookiesfrontWe set up our birdfeeder for the winter last Friday. The girls painted and helped set-up our squirrel proof birdfeeder and we discovered a mourning dove and a cardinal checking it out this Sunday. Hopefully we will have as many birds visiting us this year as we did last. It is quite amazing how much fun and entertaining a birdfeeder can be for the whole family.

Pinecones

We have had great fun in our outdoor playgroup lately. Five years after my first outdoor playgroup with my first-born daughter, I’m starting a new group in a new neighborhood with my second daughter. Last Monday we had fun collecting pinecones on our hike and decorating them.
