We play "street ball", where there are very little rules, and you can actually tickle a person to take the ball away. Half the time I am laughing so much I can't even play.
When they were smaller I would take them to the park, in old clothes, along with some finger paints, and let them paint rocks, leaves, and themselves. That was lots of fun. We also create things out of boxes. One summer we made a maze, with a McDonalds drive thru, and a planetarium. We just went to Home Depot and got as many X-Large boxes as they were willing to give us (from refrigerators, washers, and dryers), got some duct tape, and paint, and had a blast. That was an awesome memory, and it didn't cost much.
