Childhood games


A set of jacks and a little ball
This game was lots of fun
Playing in or out of doors
Holding ten jacks meant you won

Hopscotch was always played outside
A piece of chalk is all we’d need
To mark the blocks from one to ten
Tossing the stone and then we'd proceed

The jumping rope was very long
We’d take turns holding the ends
Little songs we would recite
While jumping rope with our friends

Surfing the waves on my rubber raft
Enjoying the warm summer breeze
Making castles in the sand
We’d do this with expertise

Riding our bikes and taking walks
For me it seemed like fun
Kids are now playing video games
And are hardly out in the sun
