I found this little gem of a book at Half Price Books CHEAP! I couldn’t resist the list of 101 Things Every Kid Should Do. While paging through, I realized that we, as a family, had done most of the activities on the list! And I actually had pictures to prove it! “Ah Ha” moment! I searched through stacks of extra photos and ordered new ones from index prints and before I knew it, I had many of the pages filled with a photo or two from our archives. I kept it simple and stapled the photos to the pages. The extra bulk prevents the book from closing and instead sits open on the table like those accordion party decorations. To look through the book reminds me that our kids have enjoyed many of the simpler pleasures of childhood, not to mention proof that I am, indeed, a fun Mom.
Some of the catagories:
Every kid should…
…help bake a cake from scratch and then lick the frosting bowl.
…experiment with simple science projects.
…blow a bubble gum bubble until it pops.
…ride a horse.
You get the idea!
