It seems these days we are rediscovering all types of play. Even the chores are turned into play at home. Today, counting beans as we picked them from the garden became playtime for Little O and I and he had no clue it was school work that was happening. Putting away laundry becomes play when it is a race to see who can do it the quickest.
Rediscover Play as a Tourist Throughout Ontario
As a family we try to play hard daily but when we take a road trip that is when we actually can rediscover mindful play as a family. Mommy and Daddy are unplugged from work and the kids get our undivided attention. These are my favor moments from our recent road trips throughout Ontario this spring and summer.
Want to Play in Collingwood, Ontario
This spring we planned a family bike ride through new trails in Collingwood, Ontario. We explore a new side of Collingwood, behind the scenes with nature.
When we were in Collingwood, we also rock jumped out the one-mile rock face that looked across from the famous Collingwood shipping building.
Want to Play in Ontario Parks
Recently, we went camping with some family at Emily Park in Ontario. We all had a chance to keep active and play when we rented some kayaks.
The shoreline was filled with nature, and the kids had so much fun just being mindful in the moment, playing on the lake.
Sometimes playtime is a little stroll with Grandpa and Daddy.
Or active play means a walk with Mommy and Grandma surrounded by nature at Mcrae Park, Ontario.
Want to Play in Blue Mountain, Ontario
Does off-roading in Blue Mountain count as an active play? I have to say it does because it gets your adrenaline running into high gear. An experience like this is shared best with your family.
Want to Play in Kingston, Ontario
Well, we were playing tourist this summer in Kingston, Ontario, we also played school at Fort Henry.
Well, we were strolling the fascinating history of Princess Street in Kingston, Ontario we played with a real magician.
