Every Kid Should...

I was listening to a popular radio station this morning. Every morning the DJ picks a topic or question and listeners call in with their opinions. This morning the question was "What is something that every child should experience?" A few of the answers were: camping, chores, driving an old clunker, etc. I didn't hear the rest of the show, but thought of several childhood experiences that no child should go without.



Every kid should discover storybooks and the love of reading


Every kid should ride a carousel


Every kid show blow lots of bubbles, every chance they can


Every kid should discover the fun of hiking in the woods


Every kid should visit a Pumpkin Patch in the fall


Every kid should visit a Petting Zoo and pet all of the animals


Every kid should jump into a pile of autumn leaves


Every kid needs to go to the park frequently





Every kid needs to enjoy a real snow day, especially if you live in the South



And of course, every kid needs to travel to the beach, preferably every summer

Those are good things. Lets see, what can I add? Having a pet, roasting marshmallows, helping plant a garden, learning to ride a bike, playing dress up.

Thank You for your comments.

Pictures

Growing up in my era we didn't take a lot of pictures. Of course, there were the school pictures, which I dreaded, and Mom rarely bought...
