Possible using forEach?

Was wondering if you could use a forEach loop for this? Could not get it to work trying it out.

Hi Dylan, if you look at listItems in the console you will see it is an HTMLCollection and while listItems is array-looking it is not actually an array so it does not take array methods like forEach. Instead, listItems is a collection of DOM elements that we want to manipulate or add an event to.
