games/activities when you were a kid? I loved playing tetherball, jumping rope to rhymes, and playing hand slap games.

I loved my Barbies. I also adored the Little Kiddle playhouse my older sister bought me! I still have it somewhere.

Something I still remember to this day is building a snow fort and having a snowball fight.  Of course I HAD to build the fort to protect my brother since he had stitches in his head due to me.  (I wasn't a nice sister, but he provoked me).  I also loved playing LIFE with my family.  I hated RISK because my mom ALWAYS won.  Aw the memories.  I hope that one day my kids will remember all the things we did together.  We do more outside hiking and museums than games, but we still do play inside too.

Hopscotch,  riding bikes, freeze tag, hanging out in the street with the kids on my block. We had a lot and we were pretty much all very close in age. You could always find someone to play with either outside or just ringing a doorbell.

No kidding! Kids are too reliant on electronics now. My dad built me a sandbox next to his tool shed. I'd play in it for hours.

And the coolest thing is that I've reconnected with just about everyone that grew up on our block on Facebook! My brother, sister and I were on a mission to find everyone! We're missing a few, but you never know

That IS cool! I went to an all 70s decade high school reunion this past fall and met neighbor kids I hadn't seen since we graduated. That was really neat.
