One of my favourite memories is visiting the Scenic Caves in Collingwood with my mom, brother and sister when I was about 14. I loved everything about it, so much to do and explore it truly was a memorable time. I enjoyed it so much that I knew I had to take my boys to experience it also and thanks to Amanda (Multi-Testing Mommy) I was able to do that. So for those of you who don’t know, The Scenic Caves are located in Collingwood about 1.5 hours away from Toronto. It is a “self-guided” tour through 13 various caves … Continue reading
Yes, we are all starting to feel the wind down of summer starting, but there is still plenty of time to have outdoor water play! Outdoor water play is a popular summer time activity with kids! You don’t need to have a pool or even a sprinkler to enjoy outdoor water play on a hot summer day. This summer, my children have been playing with a Nerf Super Soaker and a Nerf Rebelle and they have had a blast! With the “no spraying people’s faces” and “only spray someone if they are consenting to participate in the outdoor water play” … Continue reading
I had the opportunity to experience and review the 4-in-1 Touch Steering Chic tricycle with my 2-year-old son, and we have become huge fans. Given his age and independent spirit, we skipped directly to Stage Three (the learn to pedal stage). When our box arrived, my son was over the moon to put together his treat.

Was I going to be able to put this … Continue reading

This winter has been an abnormally cold one here in Ontario. Because of this, the kids have not had the same opportunities to play outside in the snow as they typically do during the winter months. One particularly cold day, I noticed a friend’s status on Facebook, sharing these BEAUTIFUL frozen bubbles that she made with her kids that day. We talked back and forth and she shared that it took her a few tries before she perfected the recipe. For the recipe for Outdoor Frozen Bubbles, visit Science4MyKids.com. Here are My Notes:In order for this activity to work, it … Continue reading
