Today’s installment comes from a statement overheard several years ago during a meeting with another instructor at school, as her children sat nearby.  Her 7 year-old son was speaking to his 9 year-old sister.

“You can’t have everything you want, you know.  You can’t just have anything.  You can’t get a pony for your birthday.”

2017 National Toy Hall of Fame Inductees Announced

Three new toys were inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame just moments ago:  the paper air plane,  the Wiffle Ball,  and the

board game CLUE. 

My predictions were off by one, as I had suggested that the Match box car  would make the final cut.

It’s a fine trio!

How did your predictions fare?  Whatever the outcome, why not grab your golf club and swing at a Wiffle Ball, invite some friends over for a raucous game of CLUE, or grab a piece of paper, make your best air plane, and head outside for a toss or two?

Get your play on!

Today’s installment comes from a rather insightful 4 year-old boy, during a classroom discussion about growing up and becoming an adult.

“I’m not growing up.  I don’t want to lose my options.  When you grow up, you lose all your options.  When I grow up, I’ll only have two options.  You have five options when you’re a kid.”
