Playing outside made me creative and imaginative when I was growing up. I remember dressing up my cat and playing house. Funny thing to call it, but that is what we called it back then. Playing house didn't include cleaning the house, it was only pretending to be grown up, being the mom. We also played school. Why we wanted to play school when we were already attending school is a mystery, maybe it was more fun playing school than the actual hours at school. More children today are attached to their electronic devices, which is fine, but they may be missing out on using their minds to write a play and get the neighborhood kids to perform and sing. Playing baseball for kids now is in structured leagues, whereas we just called around and found some kids to have enough for two teams and played baseball.
