Just for the record, here is a list of some such pleasures:
- The aforementioned playing in the snow (ditto with running through autumn leaves)
- Building with Lego
- Any art and craft activity
- Colouring in
- Children's baking (eg cookies or cakes with sprinkles, gingerbread men etc)
Let's not get confused. It's not about acting childish and abstaining from adult activities but if a childish pleasure here and there helps relax you, improve your mood or just gives you more enjoyment on any given day, then there's nothing embarassing or silly about doing it. After all, you can always use your children as an excuse!
Over to you now - what childish activities do you secretly love?
