Ever wonder what the “rich and famous” do in their leisure time? You might be surprised. Steph Curry, super basketball star, said that his favorite off-the-court pastime is organizing his garage. In an interview he admitted that his hobby was keeping his storage space in good order because it gave him great enjoyment. Taylor Swift, not surprisingly, writes songs as a hobby. She also spends free time baking and cooking, sometimes opening her cookbook to a random page and preparing whatever recipe is on it. Some movie stars are collectors like Tom Hanks, the familiar voice of beloved Woody in the Toy Story movies. However, his collection is not the usual art, jewelry, cars, etc. associated with super stars. It is a most unusual and original hobby.

For a chance to win $25, the following:

  • Find a picture that represents Tom Hanks’ hobby in this magazine, giving the page number and identifying the object.
  • Have you ever used this object before?
  • What are your hobbies?

October Issue Super Sleuth

The October 2019 KIDS’ KORNER discussed the creepy and fascinating facts and myths about bats. For a chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card, kids were asked: to name the Texas cave holding the world’s largest bat colony, to name the site where the largest urban bat colony in North America roosts, to give the page number of the napping bat and tell us why you think bats are creepy or cool.

The correct answers are:

  • Bracken Cave near San Antonio, Texas
  • Under the Congress Avenue Bridge in Austin, Texas
  • Page 26
  • Bats are “creepy – they are ugly and sleep upside down”


Our winner is Dea Croxton of Manassas Park, Va.

Congratulations, Dea!
