The bucket list for kids

Last month I read an article on the Globe and Mail website by Catherine McLean listing 50 things kids should do before they’re 12. And I realized I hadn’t done even half of them.

But it’s never too late, right? Want to join me and try some of these things yourself? If you do, let me know in the comments – kids of all ages welcome!
