Top Ten Things Everyone Should Do In Their Childhood

If you don't do these then I'll feel sorry for you...
The Top Ten
1 Go Camping

My parents think good camping involves an RV, which is basically a portable house. I, on the other hand, consider real camping to involve tents and tiny little outhouses with just toilets or even no outhouses.

I could've done this in 5th and 7th grade (my elementary and middle school had end of the year camping trips for students), but my overprotective mom wouldn't allow me to go on overnight school trips.

I've never done that and should have.

2 Ride a Rollercoaster

I remember my first roller coaster. I was 7 and my parents found a kiddie roller coaster. It was not a kiddie roller coaster and I was petrified. I did it again four years later and loved it.

When I was young, I remembered going to Knotts Berry Farm and riding the Jaguar. I was scared at first, but when I got older, I enjoyed this roller coaster.

My first coaster was Crazy Mouse on Steel Pier at Atlantic City, NJ, at about age 11. My first "big" coaster was Steel Force at Dorney Park at age 15. I'm now 26 and a huge coaster fan.

3 Go to the Beach

I love going to the beach. I go to Llanes every year, where there are lots of beaches. It's the best. There are just so many things to do at the beach. My favourite thing to do is swimming.

My grandparents live in Florida, so we go to the beach every year! It's one of the highlights of summer for me.

I visited the NJ shore while growing up. I'm now 26 and the NJ shore is still one of my favorite summer vacation spots.

4 Play a Musical Instrument

I play trumpet (and other brass), but I know a bit of piano and guitar.

I play guitar and piano. I'm learning saxophone and violin.

I always wanted to, but it's hard to decide on one.

5 Learn How to Ride a Bike
6 Watch a Disney Movie

Most of my favorite movies as a kid were Disney movies. I loved Lilo and Stitch, especially.

7 Go on Vacation

I went to Vegas when I was 2 years old.

My family goes to other states for vacation sometimes, mainly Illinois, Tennessee, and Florida.

8 Go to a Theme Park

I went when I was 23, which is technically young adulthood and not childhood, but I know a lot of people went here during their childhood.

The Santa Cruz boardwalk was my first amusement park. I think I also went to Adventuredome in Vegas as a toddler but I'm not sure.

I went to Disney World three times. It's a very fun place to go, especially EPCOT.

9 Get Yelled at by Mean Teachers

And this would perfectly sum up my 4th-grade year (2015-2016) in a nutshell.

10 Go Swimming
The Contenders
11 Play Video Games

I played Game Gear and Nintendo 64 as a kid.

12 Win an Award at School
13 Run a 5k
14 Ride Coin Operated Kiddie Rides

I vaguely remember going on a coin-operated ice cream truck once, but that was about it.

15 Go to a Water Park
16 Go to Summer Camp

I went to this summer day camp during the summer of 2013.

17 Went to the library for storytime
18 Ride a Carousel
19 Ride a Log Flume
20 Draw with Sidewalk Chalk

I did this all the time when I was 7 or 8 years old.
