Childhood Hobbies

Describe a memory of a hobby or activity you used to enjoy as a child that you no longer participate in — whether because you feel you’ve aged out of it, because you don’t have time, or for any other reason. Do your best to make your memory vivid, so that readers understand why this activity gave you joy.

Post your memory in the comments, then read the related article to learn about Times readers who have rediscovered childhood hobbies.

Students 13 and older in the United States and Britain, and 16 and older elsewhere, are invited to comment. All comments are moderated by the Learning Network staff, but please keep in mind that once your comment is accepted, it will be made public and may appear in print.
