My favorite childhood game was "swing jumping". My sister and I would do different "jumps" off our swings and then wrote a "book" about it! It kept us busy a whole summer!

When I was a kid we played "fort". In the summer we'd drape blankets over branches to build the fort!

AS a kid I loved playing art museum. I would create a bunch of drawings and paintings and then put them on display for family and friends.

14 Heather R March 24, 2010 at 8:37 pm

I loved to play school with my sister. I was always the teacher. Of course, now I actually am a teacher!

15 RG March 24, 2010 at 8:48 pm

My brothers and I had no actual toys growing up, so we had to come up with imaginative things to do. Not saying this was a bad decision on my parents' part. I am actually thankful for it,and, of course having food was way more important. Anyway, our favorite game was a simple one we called 'bing -butt.' We would stuff a shirt or sweater in our pants/skirt for extra padding, and then we would sit down at the top of our staircase and slowly inch to the end of the first step. Then we would have a race between two of us at a time. When our bottom left the edge of a step, we would say bing, when it landed on the next, we would say butt. It sounded hilarious to the other siblings watching and the faster you could go the better. No, none of us have any back problems.

My favorite game was building a "hide out" in the woods. We lived on 27 acres and played outdoors ALL of the time. My sister and I would play for hours in our own little world we created. =)

My friend and I would play cooking show with lots of found things from her back yard (ferns, rocks, grass, etc) That was about 30 years ago. I think we were ahead of our time.

I grew up with two sisters. We loved playing "house" together, but our favorite was playing "school"- one girl would be the teacher and make simple assignments for the two students. We made little desks and everything for our game!

Me and my sisters and some friends would roam the woods next to our house. We really had our own little world there ~ it was complete with forts and mud slides and little gardens and stone walls (we built ourselves!) next to the creek. Oh to be a child again!!!
