Winter

Snow tag

If you are lucky enough to have snow where you live you have so many opportunities for fun outdoor play.

Now in the winter it is important to be in motion when you play outside, so you keep yourself and your kids warm. It is the winter that is our peak season here in activekidsclub.com. There is so much to do; it is only our imagination that stops us.

Beautiful Things I Saw Today


By Debra Scott

Today the weather was not what we thought.  We woke up this morning to snow and a very excited little person who wanted to make snow angels and came into my room squealing with delight "it's snowing momma, there is snow everywhere, it is FINALLY winter".

When we finally got outside at 10:00 am the snow had turned to rain, the ground had turned to slush and there were only faint remnants on the occasional patch of ground that we'd even had snow this morning.  My daughter was distraught.  Her visions of snow angels and sledding were melting faster than the snow had.

Gearing up for winter : Cross Country skiing

It’s starting to get colder outside and I’m starting to get excited about winter soon arriving. I’m making sure we have everything we need to take full advantage of the snow when it arrives.  My family’s favorite activity in the winter is cross-country skiing. One of the great things about cross-country skiing is that you can do it everywhere, even in the city. One of the best ski trips we ever had was on the beltline (a trail made on an old railway track) in the middle of Toronto.

How to dress for winter

No bad weather, only bad clothing
Dressing right for the weather is the key to enjoying outdoor adventures both for adults and children. For the active outdoor adult, it has long been the consensus that layering is the best system for comfort and warmth. With multiple layers you can adjust the combination to the weather and the level of exertion and changes in temperature.

Cross country skiing


By Jennie Aronsson
When I was a child, growing up in the north of Sweden, cross-country skiing was an easy way of getting around when there was just too much snow to walk. I grew up on a farm in a small village, close to the lake, surrounded by fields and with the forest nearby. The skis would come on whenever we needed them – to go down to the lake for ice-fishing , to go out in the forest to look for animal tracks, go for a visit to a neighbour, or just to get outside on a sunny winter day. With skis on, you could move easily even in the deepest snow.
