Last Sunday morning before heading to church, I heard the sounds of children’s laughter and looked out the window to see the neighbor’s kids jumping on their trampoline.
Although it was a chilly 52 degrees and windy, I could only imagine hearing their mother’s voice yelling after breakfast, “now go outside and play!” Mind you, on Sunday mornings my grandmother had us in church from sun up to sun down, but that’s a different blog post for another day.
Most of the kids today are inside with an electronic device or watching television and unfortunately, the obesity rates are rising as we discussed in my Podcast interview with Queon Jackson, owner of Summer J Artesian Pops.
Did you have to go outside and play, and if so, what were your favorite games:
- Red Light Green Light 1 2 3
- Hide Go Seek
- Jump Roap (Double or Single Rope)
- Box Ball
- Hop Scotch
- Bike Riding
- Mother May I
- Blowing Bubbles
- Bean Toss
