Favorite Things to Do in O.C. From a Kid’s Perspective

Often what kids consider to be fun and what adults like doing can be two completely different things. As parents who are at times obsessed with making our kids happy, sometimes we end up overdoing it or assuming that they will like the same thing that we like. Instead of trying to guess what will be the most entertaining for your kiddos, why not just ask them directly? You might discover that it’s actually the simple things in life that they find most enjoyable.

We embarked on the task at hand and asked O.C. kids, “What is your favorite thing to do?” Here’s what they said.
