25 Things Every Kid Should Do Before the Age of 10 (PHOTOS)

boy gigglingThere are things in life that all kids just need to do at some point. I'm not talking about the big things, like going to Disney World or seeing the Grand Canyon, but rather those little, everyday moments that are just full of wonder, joy, and youth.

Some of them are so simple, we don't even note them when they happen for the first time, but years later, it's these things we look back on as the core of our childhood. Here are 25 things all kids should do while they're still kids, a bucket list if you will. See how many your kids have checked off as of now, and add any others you'd like to see on this list in the comments.

What would you add to this list?

My son will likely never do 3 or 13. He hates bugs and worms. We'll see what my little girl thinks :)

Next time you make a slide show, include more ethnicities. There is only one slide out of 26 with non-white kids. I mean, come 'on, it is 2013- get with it.
