Classic outdoor games are a great family activity; and it gets kids away from the screens. I remember playing these games with my friends at recess or on weekends in the park. I’m sure you’ll recognize them too. Nowadays we just spend way too much time inside and in front of the tv, computer or video games. These classic outdoor games need a revival!
A family that plays together, stays together; at least that is my theory. It sure seems like we don’t take enough time out to play with your kiddos. They grow up fast and we need to soak up every second we can. No kid should grow up play Mario Kart but not Kick the Can – batteries fail but a Campbell Soup can never does!
Here is my top 10 favorite classic outdoor games to get you started playing outside. Have fun!
1. Mother May I
Will Mother allow you to move ahead? You better ask first!
2. Kick the Can
Hide and seek meets tag…with a dash of soccer?
