Ahh the good old days, yes I actually say that to myself at my age when I think back to my youth. The days of sleepovers, rotary phones, and drinking out of garden hoses because….well, why not?? Sometimes we forget about the “old fashioned” fun we had as kids when we have children ourselves. Yet, when I think of a few and introduce them to my girls they have just as much fun as I did “way back then”. Here are 10 activities that will bring you back to your childhood too. Let me know what kind of memories are sparked when you read my list…and tell me what I forgot that was special to you. 😉
Remember these things?? They were a bit smaller back then (now they make them in adult sizes). I saw them and this was the hit of Christmas this year! SO simple really, but anything my kids can jump, jump, jump, and bounce, bounce, bounce on is a real hit in their world! Of course there are lots of activities you can do with your kids that are fun, but pricey. I wanted to think back on the things I did at home, with my friends and parents that put a smile on my face and when I do them with my kids it makes everyone giggle. Here’s one…..build a fort!
