101 Things Every Kid Should Do Growing Up

A much better find than the video was the book 101 Things Every Kid Should Do Growing Up. I haven't made it all the way through yet, but as I go through I'm making notes on things that I want to remember to do with Lilypad Princess as she grows and which things we have already done.

The book also has helpful hints for most things, such as a recipe for making your own Playdoh (#6 Every kid should play with playdoh)or ways to have an indoor camp-out if you don't have a backyard (#4 Every kid should camp in the backyard).

Some of the things LP has already done:
#35 Every kid should create a holiday keepsake. (Santa's cookie plate)
#5 Every kid should play in the bathtub until his skin wrinkles. (almost every bath)
#8 Every kid should catch snowflakes on his tongue and eyelashes.
#38 Every kid should have a collection. (magnets)
#39 Every kid should attend a live performance. (Sesame Street Live)
#37 Every kid should play dress up.
#69 Every kid should make a pizza

Some of the ones that will definitely be added to my list of things to do:
#77 Every kid should go to a baseball game with Grandpa. (definitely a Yankee game)
#86 Every kid should have a personal library card.
#24 Every kid should learn to swim (in progress)
#27 Every kid should take music lessons.
#36 Every kid should participate in a "-thon".
#45 Every kid should write a memory letter each year.
#56 Evert kid should create a board game.
