Do You Remember Any Of These Games From Your Childhood?

Long before every kid had a cell phone or a tablet, kids had to find ways to use their imagination to keep busy. They invented all kinds of fun games with limited resources and it's a real shame that kids today probably don't know what they are.

Do you remember any of these games? Which was your favorite? Have you taught your kids or your grand kids all the fun games from your past?

1. Hop Scotch

All you needed was a piece of chalk, some pavement and a rock and you could hop around with your friends. I don't know what the exact objective  was, but it fun and that's all that matters.

2. Jacks

Such a simple premise but it kept the kids entertained for hours!

3. Marbles

Knowing just how to aim those marbles was such a challenge. Kids today probably would not understand the appeal at all!

4. Red Rover

The object of the game was to essentially try not to get totally clothes-lined by your friends. Run at full speed and hope your friends hands were sweaty enough to let go.

5. Jump Rope

How many jump rope games to you remember? My knees are covered in scars from slipping on the pavement

6. Simple Board Games

Everything now is so complicated. What ever happened to good ol' Checkers?

7. Leap Frog

Do kids still play this? It was always super fun, at least until you got kicked in the head by your friend who couldn't jump high enough.

8. Tag

I'm sure kids still play tag, but it has been the go to game for so long.

9. Hide and Seek

Kids still play this, but probably not as much as they used to!

10. Ring Around The Rosie

This game is only fun as long as you don't think too hard about the meaning behind it. After you know what the song means, it is pretty depressing.

11. Just playing outside!

It's not very often that you see kids playing outside anymore, at least not without a tablet nearby just in case they get bored!

Share if you remember playing any of these games when you were a kid!

The True Story Behind "The Sound of Music" Is Even Better Than Whiskers On Kittens

When Julie Andrews brought the sound of music down from the mountains and into our hearts, she brought with it a love for the real-life von Trapp family, who the story was based on. The movie follows the autobiography of the real Maria von Trapp, who was a nun that became a part of an Austrian family before the Nazi occupation in World War II. The film accurately portrays a lot about their lives and demeanor, but in Maria's published memoirs (that the film was based on) it is easy to see how much becomes simple Hollywood figment. Here are
