My favorite game as a kid was pretend. I had/have a vivid imagination and was always pretending something. My dad built us a clubhouse when we were little, and that was my hideout; my bakery for mudpies, mudcakes, and mud brownies; my home; and my thinking spot. I would've slept out there if I had been allowed! Several sheets of plywood and a dirt floor-my castle. I also pretended that I was an Olympic ice skater as I slogged around the frozen puddle across the street in winter, imagining that my Nikes were skates. We also had a metal bar that my dad put up for us that we swung on endlessly, and of course I was Nadia on that bar! I was never brave enough to try a penny drop, but I swung on that bar every day in the summer, from my hands and from my knees. Even if I was playing Barbies, pretend was how the Barbies came to life.
I think I will have to scrapbook my old playhouse and do some journaling about pretending. What was your favorite game as a kid?
