I think today's kiddos are ruled by technology. I mean my kid has a tablet and a wii and junk like that. But last night we took her and my niece out to our friends house. They rent a place on a ranch. They have 5 kids total (combined family). The kids were "bored" after 20 minutes. Seriously?! You're outside on a ranch and there are 7 of you!! We taught them to play mother may I, man hunt, sardines, and red rover. It was the best thing ever watching them run wild like we used to with no electronics and have a blast. They played for hours with no complaints :). We finally brought them home dirty and covered in hay! What do your kids do that is still considered living the simple life?
**a little edit: we bring dd to do outside things often, fishing, camping, the creek, ect. Was just curious what your kiddos do :) we live in an apt with no backyard right now, and she doesn't know any kids here yet, so that's not an available option to her. Also we're in a super small town with not much kid friendly stuff.
