” No bad weather only bad clothing!”
Playgroups and gatherings for parents and children have been around for the longest time. What about having an outdoor playgroup? Imagine transferring activities outside and including outdoor activities in a regular club- rain, shine, snow or wind!
Today’s interview is with Kari Svenneby founder of the website activekidsclub.com. Her website provides you with information about everything you need to know about connecting children and adults to nature and play. No matter the weather, she will show you joyful and fun outdoor activities to do in all the four seasons.
Kari is a proud wildcrafter, urban mother, librarian and classically trained chef championing the benefits exposure to nature gives children. Being that Kari is Norwegian, her husband is from Florida and they live in Canada she likes to call three places her home. Norway, Florida and Canada.

Great job ladies! I think you both gave us some insight to why we are doing this in a way that is hard to convey in just the written word. Funny that you have broadcast this interview as I just launched a video trying to capture the spirit of what we are trying to say. This is important… It isn’t just playtime.
Great interviewer and interviewee! I admire Kari, Russell, Debra, Kristin and Mari, and activekidsclub.com because it promotes playing outdoors as an activity for the WHOLE family. There’s sooo much depth to what she’s put her energy in with this business, because she’s not selling us things like ‘the best baby pram’, ‘the best eco water bottle’ etc, she’s just promoting Mother Nature.
