Craft: Angel, Star, Tree and Snowman Paper Chain

How to make a paper chain: Materials : paper*, scissors, pen/pencil, Adirondack Family Time Christmas Template The paper can be as heavy or fancy as you wish. I used the comics as it was colorful and we could dig out something from our recycle bin. Kids of all ages can do this indoor activity. I made the template a bit large so that little hands could help with cutting. This is a good exercise for eye-hand coordination.

Adirondack Family Fun: Free Fishing Days!

By Diane Chase New York State (NYS) Free Fishing Days will commence this weekend, June 25-26. This annual event started in 1991 as a chance for anyone to attempt fishing. This year the licensing fee has increased so this weekend will be a good opportunity to either introduce someone to fishing or take advantage of a free weekend. NYS isn’t giving much away for free so why not take advantage and relax by a stream or on a pond, casting for some of the various strains of stocked breed and wild catch. Read More
