66 Things To Do Before You’re Six

Turning six is a big milestone! By the time you’re six, you can run and jump and chatter away about all the things that you love. You’re learning to read and write, and you can chop your own food up at meal times. You don’t need help getting on the toilet anymore and you can easily get yourself dressed.

Yes, in the words of the fabulous A.A.Milne:


“Now I am six,

I’m as clever as clever,

So I think I’ll be six

now and forever.”

A. A. Milne


So if you (or perhaps a little person in your house) is approaching this magnificent age of enlightenment and knowledge, I’ve made a list of 66 things to help you on your way!
