10 Games Every 90s Kid Played That'll Make You Want To Be Back In Gym Class

- Page 1

Second only to recess, gym was one of the best parts of the day at school. It was a much needed break from hours of complicated math problems and history lessons.

While sport activities like soccer, basketball and baseball were standard in any gym class, there were plenty of other games that we played that made the class so much more memorable.

The teachers always knew the right games to pick so that we could have fun with our friends while reaping the benefits of physical activity.

Let's go down memory lane and revisit 10 gym class games that make us want to be kids all over again:

1. Dodgeball

Times Union

Friendships were formed and enemies were made whenever we played this team-based game, but in the end everyone had fun throwing and dodging balls. The sound of the ball hitting you is something that will stick with you forever.

2. Scooters


Even though our hands were subjected to extreme pain whenever we rolled over them with the scooter board, it didn't stop us from getting excited whenever we had the chance to play with these bad boys. Sometimes we even got to lie on our stomachs and roll from one end of the gym to another.

3. Knockout

If you sucked at basketball, Knockout was the next best thing. Everyone stood in a line and attempted to shoot a ball into the basketball net. If you missed your shot, the person behind you made theirs and so on until only one kid is left standing.

4. Aerobics

State of New Jersey

For those who hated team sports, aerobics days were the absolute best. We didn't have to worry about being picked last or being stuck with teammates we didn't like. As long as we had comfortable clothes and catchy tunes, we were ready to step and stomp until we got sweaty.

5. Koosh Ball Catch

Kids born today will never understand the simple joy of trying to catch Koosh Balls. Not only did these balls look funky, they were easy to catch and throw and didn't hurt when someone hit you with them. Gym teachers brought these in to motivate those kids who hated exercise so much that they feigned being sick. You know who you are.

Let's continue the nostalgia trip with even more games that brought us major fun in gym class.

The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day. Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if


87-Year-Old Grandma Uses Microsoft Paint To Create Beautiful Masterpieces

Using the computer as a kid was kind of a privilege that you didn't get everyday. Kids now have little computers in their pockets from a young age, so probably a lot of the novelty has worn off. Even when we weren't allowed to use the internet, there was one program that would entertain us for hours, and that was Microsoft Paint.  The simple software that came preinstalled on every computer was basically everyone's favorite thing. The only thing we would use more than Paint was probably Solitaire. Between Paint and Solitaire we could have spent hours on the


KB Toys Announces Their Comeback After Toys 'R' Us Declares Bankruptcy

After we were all devastated by the news that our childhood heaven Toys 'R' Us was closing down, we thought that nothing could make our inner child happy. Honestly, Toys 'R' Us was the coolest place to go when you were little, and it sucks knowing that we won't be able to bring our kids there one day. But wait! There was one place that we loved going to just as much as Toys 'R' Us, maybe even more. KB Toys was the competitor to the popular brand, and while they went out of business in 2009, they are now
