A great way to get your kids outdoors this summer and fight off the pandemic blues is with some games from years past.

I had a Facebook friend post a question that simply asked, “What were your favorite games to play as a kid?” What a great question. I quickly respond that I was the Pompano Beach Champion of Miss Mary Mack and the Rockin’ Robin!!!! Runner up for kickball & H O R S E!
