A kid's life in the 1950's was uncomplicated but rich in activities. The neighborhood was filled with the sounds of kids playing games; in the street, in their yards, or at the playground.

Some of the games we played were:


  • Tag
  • Hide and go seek
  • Red Rover, Red Rover
  • Simon Says
  • Marbles
  • Hopscotch (there would always be some sidewalk with the traditional chalk numbered formation that would impel you to hop along)
  • Rollerskating on the sidewalk
  • Riding a bike
  • Badminton
  • Croquet
  • Unorganized baseball
  • Playing catch
  • Jump rope
  • Pretend playing (dolls, cowboys & indians, war, adventurers on an hike)


  • Sled riding
  • Building igloos
  • Throwing snowballs
  • Making snowmen

There were probably lots more I haven't even thought of yet. Do kids do any of this stuff anymore?
