  • Hide and seek tag, I loved playing doctor, house, and teacher too. I know what you mean though. I try to get my daughter to play silly with mama and all she wants to do is play daddy's computer games! She's only 19 months old! Daddy let her play with him once and now she is hooked and mama has to pry her away from it lol.

  • hopscotch, jailbreak, and waterfights. oh and baseball too. and lots of time on the trampoline. i hope i can get my kids interested in the same, i'd hate for them to waste all their time playing video games and such.

  • We had cows, horses, cats, dogs, that was my past time, I played outside for hours, and then as I got older my favorite thing was to go on an evening horseback ride with a neighbor...

  • I loved playing capture the flag, hide and seek, or explorer games. The more adventure the more fun I had. We were too poor for a tv.. so we did the same things my parents did when they were kids... use our imaginations. lol. I had more fun doing outdoor activities than I ever did watching a movie.

  • I liked playing make believe games. We'd pretend to be all kinds of people or animals. Also, my whole family used to play this game called "Monster." we'd turn off all the lights in the house and then one person would hide and everyone else had to find the one person. But the person hiding was a monster so they'd jump out and get you... I guess the rules changed a lot because I don't remember who was supposed to catch who... It was a lot of fun though!! Like hide and go seek in the dark!
