I came across this article on website KIDSPOT (which you should totally follow) and it is so good I just had to share it.
The writer Maxabella has listed a fantastically diverse range of things complete which is aimed at 6-12 year olds. Thank you for sharing – I really love it.
We have printed out the checklist, and I have asked Ella (11) to choose 6 things she wants to complete by the end of the year, and then over the summer holidays (she has 8 weeks) I will ask her to complete another 6. I might even blog about it.
To show you the range of things listed, here are 3 examples:
Know how to start a campfire
There’s a real art to building a fire that catches easily and burns bright. It’s a good skill to have, even if you’re not planning on being a Survivor contestant any time soon. A campfire or fire-pit fire are a lovely way to bring people together.
Hold a newborn baby
A precious moment for any kid, whether they are related to the newborn or not (Ella has ticked this one off already).
Host a dinner party
Up the ante for birthdays and let your child host a sit-down dinner party for a few friends. Make it a posh affair and insist the kids dress up and mind their manners. Then ask them what it’s like being a grown-up. Is it more fun than they thought it might be?
