On Wednesday, Rae Grant gave us some fun ideas for button crafts and collecting. Her post got me thinking about kids and collections and how it seems that at one time or another all kids go through a collecting phase. Some kids never grow out of that phase, and I know more than a few adults who can trace their current collection back to their childhoods.
My oldest daughter collects stamps and rocks (for those of you in central Indiana, our family highly recommends taking your little rockhounds on a trip to the Spencer Lapidary in Elwood).
My son began collecting pressed pennies during our travels this summer and he and his Daddy have been collecting die-cast cars together since Max was a toddler.
Other Kid Collectibles

Let’s Talk: What does your child collect?
What are your kids into collecting?
How do you store and display their collections?
Did you keep collections as a kid?
Have any of those interests followed you into adulthood?
The comments are open for discussion.
