Don’t lose your marbles… Long live the Toys!

 Once upon a time….decades ago

Kids spent hundreds of happy days playing outside.

They were building forts, playing ball, hopscotch, jump rope, marbles, climbing trees, skating, skate boarding, riding bikes, building rope swings, creating tree houses, playing in the sprinkler, tossing a ball, playing baseball, watching the clouds float overhead – imaginations at play…playing a rousing game of stick ball…

What are your kids doing?

      A rousing game of Candy Land? Jacks? Pick Up Sticks? It’s all about “getting down.” That is, get down on the floor and play….Cheers!
