What a wonderful week I have had spending time with visiting family. Including my munchkin, we had kids from 8 to 23. Which put me in the right frame of mind for our Friday Frivolity Host theme: Childhood. And it made me quite nostalgic for my own childhood. So, without further ado, here are some things I miss about childhood.
If I close my eyes I can smell them now. Mmmmmm! (the picture is an affiliate link to buy them and relive the memories yourself)
The Laff A Lympics and and the eerily similar prime-time non-animated "Battle of the Network Stars" (google it kiddos). Yup, some high quality thought provoking entertainment there. Full episodes are available on Amazon video.

Lisa is an awesomely hilarious and authentic writer who marches to her own drum on her blog Syncopated Mama, providing an "un-labelly spot" for all the happily off-beat folks out there who have been wishing to find kindred spirits. She shares her adventures building a natural home, teaching her adorbs daughter, establishing and refining positive communication skills, camping, creating, cooking, and so much more! She reveals her list of read aloud classics she used when she was teaching her second graders. A few may shock you....
Jessica is an amazingly funny and smart blogger from Wales who writes at Babi a Fi on a whole range of topics -- from entertaining vintage nostalgia, to technology tutorials, to book reviews, to raising her adorable munchkin, and so much more! She has a book review and lists all the books she read in June, I always fill up my Goodreads when I read her book posts.
In a fun twist, since we now have four hosts we will also have FOUR FEATURES.... but you will have to go check out the other three blogs to see if you were featured there! 😉
My featured post is this fun twist on an Egg Hunt from What Happens at Grandmas: Dino Egg Diggers. She earned some major Grandma points with this activity, I'm sure!
Now time for the new stuff!

Love these! The lava game! The couch forts! The stinky markers! ;P Now I'm feeling all nostalgic...
I am assuming every American kid has played the lava game. I taught my kids and his friends and they LOVED it. Their parents, not so much...
Jamie @ Medium Sized Family says
I can't believe you can buy those markers again! I had forgotten all about them, but one look and I can already smell them. Not that I was sniffing markers as a child.........
On sale at Target this week. Or maybe it was Toys R Us. It was in one of the ads. 🙂
