The Torontonians are embracing the concept of outdoor playgroups. Now there are 5 different outdoor playgroups run by different parents every week in different parks in Toronto following the motto –No bad weather, only bad clothing
Here's a recent blog post from Debra in The Beach outdoor playgroup
It is always interesting to how the kids take an activity and make it their own. After about a half an hour with several bottles of water and food colouring and a big patch of white snow we had the
most beautiful piece of collaborative art that could have held its own in any of the fine art galleries in New York.
This art, however, was more of a performance piece. Although the final product was a colourful and beautiful piece, it was watching the kids run around with the coloured water and get excited by squirting the snow was really the most beautiful part.
There is no Inuit word for "snow that inspires the imagination".
Maybe there should be.
