New experiences can not only be fun, but encourage kids to get out of their comfort zone {parents too!}.  Encouraging kids to try something new is easier when the whole family is involved.  It is one of the reasons why we featured 52 Brand New blog as one of our best blogs!

Danielle’s mission to try something new each week can inspire us toward new experiences.  Today we are featuring 14 new things to try with your kids!
