Kittens made me happy. Playing tennis against the school made me happy. Chinese jumprope, jacks, lemon twister...all made me happy. Flying kites made me happy too.

Name some things that made you happy as a child.

Climbing trees. My friend, Gail, and I climbed every tree in the neighborhood. I loved being up at the top of the tree looking down at the neighborhood.

So many things, penny candy,riding my bike, staying up late and catching fireflies, popsicles, playing 4 square,
watching wild kingdom & disney while eating popcorn and sipping rootbeer.
Staying awake on Friday nights knowing that my Dad would get home after 11pm and had subs or a pizza just for my mom and him but I crashed the party begging for some.

So many things... I still love to stomp in puddles too!

Rainbow pads (remember those?)
Color books and crayons
penny candy
a trip to the library--all the NEW books to read!

Does anyone see a theme here? These things cost little to no money! Can we make our kids as happy with as little (comparativel) cash? Something to think about...
