When I was growing up we played outside all summer, in shorts, barefoot, short sleeves, no sunblock, cheap .99 cent sunglasses maybe, but base ball hats most defently. We would eat our breakfast and then head outside. Here is a short walk down memory lane.
We got up to watch TV shows like this:
We ate a bowl of cereal like this:
And we went outside to play games like these:
|Tag Foot ball|
and one of my favorites
We would play until lunch time, then stop just long enough to eat a bologna sandwich. After lunch we would go back outside and do it all again until the street lights came on. Then we'd go home, eat dinner, take a bath and fall into bed tired and happy.
Now in the State of NY, at some summer day camp, Freeze Tag is not allowed because it's dangerous!! So what are parents sending their kids to camp to do? Sit around and watch TV? Play computer games and get fat? No wonder we have a generation of overweight kids. Get them outside and let them play, get dirty and get skinned knee's. Imagination is great! Let them be a kid!!!
Ok, My rant is over. Enjoy your day and tell me about your childhood games! Me, I'm going to go play either Freeze Tag or hide and seek!
