Grab Your Friends and Relive your Childhood Favorites

Posted by tamara h.

Going outside doesn't always have to mean an obligatory evening run with the family dog. Kids actually look at outdoor activity as a reward and a release rather than a task or punishment. And adults can too!

It is just as fun to play outside as an adult now that I'm 27 as it was when I was 7 years old. Go on a scavenger hunt for the best public fountains and dare your friends to be the first to jump inside. Strike up a game of dodgeball at the local park or organize a relay race fo the next church event or company picnic.

Going camping? Set up volleyball or even an old fashioned game of hide and seek. Think I sound crazy? Try it! You will be amazed at how much your friends will get into it, how much you'll laugh, and how many amazing photos you will get!

Good ideas. I would like to add playing a game of cricket. It involves a lot of running and sweating, and the best part is that it can be played with as little as 2 members (in an informal version) and as many as 22.
Let's go on a scavenger hunt! I haven't done that in so many years, I wonder if I can convince my friends to do one?? I like the ones where you have to knock on people's doors and ask them for randome objects. Unfortunately, people might get scared if a bunch of 30 year olds showed up at their door asking for a button or a safety pin.
