Nice old book

I often remind the kids that I grew up without computer. We didn´t even have a video recorder. When my kids want to see, hear, know anything they go to YouTube, Spotify, Google. That is such a huge difference from my childhood and I wonder what impact that has on the next generation (I know I sound like an old grandma). We had to fill our spare time with other stuff and we pottered a lot. Today I found this old ”Idea-book for children”. My kids are too old but I get inspired by it. I guess it reminds me of my childhood.

    I was just talking about this to someone yesterday. As a kid, I would read through my grandmothers books/magazines for hours…that’s just what you had. This book is great (especially the last photo) and your blog is too 🙂

    I admit that I would find it incredibly hard to live without the internet now but I , too, grew up without a video recorder , little TV and no computer. We played street games – like Kickcan and Conkers, played sports and were much more creative. quite sad how it’s changed.
