We have always chosen to entertain our children with STEAM toys that not only provide fun entertainment, but also teach a variety of different skills such as creativity and logical thinking. These toys related to the fields of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics help children grow in educational and productive ways.

We love watching different types of birds come to our garden. Over the years, we invested in adding features to attract birds and other pollinators from bird feeders, pond, water features, bee hotels, bird houses, and more. We find it exciting to observe the birds, and have been reading books such as DK Canada's fully updated 2nd edition Pocket Birds of Canada to identify the types of birds that visit our garden.

Every homeowner would want both the interior and the exterior of the home to not only be functional but also to look presentable. One factor that adds to the curb appeal of any home is the garage door! Choosing one that fits the whole look of the house would be great. According to Garage Door Repair Langley, problems with garage doors can easily be resolved, so we don't encounter repairs and look for people to do the job.

It is sad when parts of our history keeps repeating itself, it is as though humanity hasn't learned anything from its past actions. We know many people have sacrificed their lives for justice, and we are still seeing a world of injustice around us, it is probably because of peoples' ignorance. I think it is important for us, as parents, to teach ourselves and our children about past events, hoping they will be kind and not repeat the past that has led to many problems we face today. The consequences of colonization, slavery, greed for land and power from generations past are still haunting us in the injustices and wars we see happening all over the world. When humans haven't created life, they don't have the right to take it or judge it. We can all do our part by learning, becoming more empathetic, and always remembering to treat others better than the way you want to be treated.

On our recent post about the changes we have made over the years to live more sustainably, we mentioned that we made our own DIY compost bin which has tremendously reduced the amount of material we throw in our green bin.

When the school year winds down usually, we would be planning road trips and overnight camping trips. However, because of the current situation we feel staying home is a better option. As we spend more time indoors, we have taken advantage of the extra time learning new skills, spending time doing crafts, painting, other DIY projects, baking and more which we usually don't get enough time to do. When we do these activities, we feel somehow our previous travels have inspired us in some way. These Playmobil toys for children in camping and road trip themes are a perfect way for us to encourage little ones to use their imagination and recreate their travel memories.
