Tony Hawk’s First Skateboard
Childhood memories can be bolstered by holding onto items that were at one time near and dear to our hearts. A dollhouse, a handmade Christmas ornament or your first skateboard (see Tony Hawk’s first skateboard below). I’m sure Tony wouldn’t trade in that board for anything and because he’s held onto this board he can vividly remember how he first got started skating and who helped teach him.
Consider holding onto a few memories from your childhood and your children’s by storing some of the smaller items that you know you will both treasure in years to come, and remember many of these items will be one’s that you built not bought.
