16 Childhood Activities Every Adult Wishes They Still Could Do

By  | 


Little kids have it good. They don’t have to pay taxes, they get to play with toys all the time, and they can go to bed as early as they want without feeling like a loser. Why can’t adults retain some of these benefits?

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t approve of Peter Pan’s philosophy to “never grow up.” Taxes need to be paid, after all, and I'm not going to lie, it's nice to be able to relax with a large after-work cocktail at a bar. But can’t adults enjoy some childhood activities every once in awhile?

Fortunately, we’re making strides in the right direction. Disney is remaking our favorite childhood classics in live-action with real adult actors, and adult coloring books are all the rage. But there are still so many things my younger self thinks my older self is missing out on.

Which childhood activity would you bring back as an adult?
