Summer is coming soon & if you are a mom or dad with a chronic illness you may be wondering how you are going to fill in some of that spare time your children have. Here is one web site that get the kids, even if they are only 6 or 7 years old, to start thinking about what they could do to set a record.
The Universal Record Database is touted as “the definitive site for human achievement.” While I don’t think seeing how many spoons you can knock off the counter with your nose in 20 seconds can be defined as a human achievement. . . who am I to judge? The fun thing about this site is that you can do almost anything, video tape it, & stick it up as a new record. One gal decided to see how many plastic spoons she could hold in 1 h& (45). If nothing else, it may get your kids to think out of the box at what they could do that’s creative or see if there is a record they think they could actually break!
And if you start getting bored yourself. . . think up your own “skill” you have mastered & upload it just for fun (& let us know!) For example, just how many child proof medication bottles can you get the lids off in 30 seconds? How far can you walk in 1 minute using crutches? Why not take a depressing situation & have a little bit of fun with it?
Check out The Universal Record Database & let us know if you decide to give something a whirl!
