Reading, she's still at the stage of finding it hard & limited to.pretty crap books so no wonder really. I loved reading as a child & still do so would love her to as well.

And watching films, she 'ok watch tv for hours but hates watching films. Even bribing with popcorn doesn't work

Funnybones books and television show. Dd is too much of a scary cat to watch or read them sad.

The Snowman. I just don’t think it’s as magical for this generation 😢

Just dismantled the massive trampoline. Pretty sure ds hasn’t noticed.

Travel, mooching and people watching. In silence

I have visions of taking mine to a cafe for a hot chocolate as a treat- it always ends up a complete nightmare.

Just tried to force entice DD (4) to watch Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory with me and she hated it. To be fair I think shes a few years too young yet but she's the last of 3 kids and the other 2 hated it. They also weren't as fussed on Roald Dhal books as I'd hope.

Mary Poppins is another film I really wanted to watch with them as kids that they hated so I'm leaving DD another while before trying that one!

So, apart from the obvious (veggies, healthy food etc) what did you hope your kids would love that they refuse to, no matter how hard you try?

I will also add bikes to the list, they just don't like them.
And the beach.
