If there is one struggle that mom’s are sharing this summer, it is trying to pull their kids away from Fortnite. If left to their own devices (see what I did there?), kids would stay inside for unlimited hours, sporting headsets with mouthpieces, screaming to their friends, trying to be the last one standing. In our day, we called games like this Kick the Can or Ghosts in the Graveyard, but we didn’t have an earpiece on and we were running our butts off rather than sitting and staring at a screen. Ah the 80s…..
So, how do you encourage kids to get off their devices and get outside? Here’s a fun toy that is sure to entice them:
All you need is a backyard, open field, park, or a beach, and a willing kid or two (teens and adults included). Then, let the games begin. Check out my girls having a blast – oh and us too!
And who knows, maybe getting them outside will encourage more outside play? Maybe we can bring back a resurgence of those popular outside 80s games while they’re at it?
