Must be Spring

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Easy ways to make kids happy

If there’s one kind of children’s toy I love more than any it’s outdoor toys. Skates, bikes, ride-ons, wagons, skipping ropes, kites, stilts (YES), balls, you name it… it is in our garage. We also have one pogo stick, as our youngest will demonstrate below.

Speaking of toys, I can’t wait to show you what Sarah is getting for her birthday. (!)

Fantastic! I would have lasted about 4 hops before collapsing… I’m quite certain that you could register her time in the Guinness Book of Records !

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (15) and Sarah (13). I am the editor of the Kitchissippi Times and a regular contributor to MediaSmarts.ca. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
