Free but fun more present in Instagram

Seems to me I don’t have so much time for writing anymore, so it seems maybe Instagram is better suited for sharing quick tips. Like us kicking off our ice-skating season today while the Autumn rain is pouring down. No long sentences needed, just a picture and a few words. You’ll find me @vilmafbf.

Luukki Lake and Walks, Espoo

A good destination for a daytrip; we had a lovely swim in the lake, invented water rugby, had picnic (but could have had lunch or coffees at the mannor too) and then did a 2,5km walk getting energy from the first ripe lingonberries on the way. There were options for much longer walks too. A […]

Pärnu 

The beach in Pärnu is famous, but I didn’t realise how fantastic it is until we went there. I’d be happy to go back! I was impressed to read on a statue that already in the 19th century the head of the town had the foresight to start developing the beach area to make it […]

Camping Holiday in Estonia

After the long hauls to Australia in March-April, we decided to explore Estonia, which is only 2 hours away on a ferry. We loved beautiful Estonia, there is so much more than Tallinns Old Town to it! Cost of the holiday This holiday cost us, a family of 4, about 500e, food, ferry (with car. […]

Making Wooden Boats

Especially my son was thrilled to design and make on his own (but with the help of his grandfather…) wooden boats, rock ancker and all. And then to play with them in the water. Free and simple but loads of joy!

Traditional Hey Work

On July 6th this year the city invited everyone to come to Tuomarinkylä, Helsinki, and try some traditional style hey making. This is an annual event, it is free, and all the work people get, as per the tradition, soup (delicious!) and coffee. The hey will be fed to the animals at Haltiala in the […]

Angry Bird Playgrounds in Espoo

There are two, one in Oittaa and one in Leppävaara. We’ve only been to the one in Leppävaara. I am not a huge fan of the Angry birds but have to admit the playground is worth going to with kids: The climbing frame has “lifts”, small boards kids can stand on and get a ride […]

The Easy Birthday Cake(s)

My eldest turned 7 and had several wishes for birthday cakes. Also, she is wheat intolerant, and normally doesn’t really like to eat cakes, just the look of them. But I came up with solutions we both were very pleased with; simple and affordable and actually made by me. #1 When celebrating with her friends, she […]

Rhodo Park

Originally posted on Free But Fun:
Finally we got around to visit the Rhodo Park in South Haaga the right time of the year. The rhododendron had lovely colourful flowers, the park overall is very tidy, and also accessible by wheelchair. A nice place for a little evening walk (or run and climb for some……

Our New Summer Hobbies on Wheels

My hubby has taken our kids to skateparks lately, they love doing tricks on them on their scooters! Our son is into skateboarding too, so one day my daughter told me us two should get inline skates for us two. What a great idea!  We got the skates, and kids immediately got the hang of […]
