Remember when summer meant lazy days without structure or end, where neighborhood kids gathered for a rousing game of backyard tag, dodge ball or ringalevio, and nighttime meant catching fireflies in a Mason jar? The simple pleasures of running barefoot back and forth under a cheap, oscillating sprinkler could last for hours — until Mom called you in for dinner or the Good Humor truck beckoned with its telltale jingle.

This summer, put the playdates on hold, pull the plug on the Wii and send your kids outside to use their bodies and imaginations in exuberant play. To help you get started, we’ve compiled a roster of fun retro games and activities that, while simple, have stood the test of time. It’s playtime!
