.outdoor fun with kids.

while my son is way too young to enjoy any outdoor activities right now, i seriously can't wait till next year when he is just about a year & half and hopefully walking and playing with as much craziness as we can handle. with so many awesome [and fun!] winter activities to beat those cabin-fever blues, i am already stock piling a few of these items as nothing beats playing in the snow, especially when you live up here in canada!

here's some of the coolest winter toys i've come across this year, and if you live in any sort of snow climate you would probably win an 'awesome mom + dad' award if you got a few for your kiddos too!

lets get those kids outside and physically active!

1] ideal sno brick builder || $5.95. this ever-so-helpful brick builder will assist your kiddos in probably building the most awesome igloo or snow fort ever! a must in my books!
2] lucky bums children skis || $79.95. probably the cutest / most stylish little person skis i have ever laid my eyes on. this super cool retro looking pair comes in two sizes and i'm sure will be the first purchase my husband will make for outdoor play!
3] sno-crayons || $5.95. now your little artist can play outside too! these crayons fill up and enable your little one to draw in the snow. awesome!
4] shovels || $12.95. little ones love to help mama and papa tidy up around the house [it makes them feel 'so big!'], so why not get them to help you outside with a colourful shovel! make a fun game out of it and you have yourself some free labor! and your sidewalks will never look so good!
5] junior hockey skates || $159.99. a little pair of skates! umm, adorable! get your little one on the rink early and he/she will be passing you the puck in no time! a great way for you to burn some calories as well!
6] zipfy sled || $39.95. have a little daredevil on your hands? let them whip down the hill on this sucker!
7] sno stomper || $24.95. these are probably my most favourite find of the lot! these mini snowshoes leave monster and animal tracks when your wee ones walk on the snow! how adorable is that? only wish they made adult versions....
8] ideal sno ball maker || $5.95. little hands have a hard time shaping snow balls with their tiny fingers so help them out with this awesome snow ball maker and you'll have a fun battle going in no time!

any cool outdoor toys that you've found and score points with your kids?? i'd love to hear about them!

  4. We've got way too much snow on our hands, so I wish I had all of this! The "first swim" pics are so sweet. He looks right at home.

    1. Thanks so much! I must have done a good job on the swimming pictures in tricking everyone because he really was a deer in headlights. Wasn't really sure he quite loved it, but we'll get their!
