Getting outside, playing with friends, and getting away from the classroom for a few minutes was the highlight of the day. We took to social media asking our followers to recall their favorite playground games. While Red Rover and tag were favorite games to play, here are a few other playground games you may have forgotten about over the years. “I loved square dancing in middle school gym class,” said Kirstin Renee Reddick Slusser. “Mother May I, Simon says, and hop- scotch,” said Sue Kirkpatrick. “Red Rover, Heads Up, 7 Up, red yellow green light, and crab walk,” said Sarah Layton. “Jump rope, ‘Queen Bee, chasing after me…’, Red Rover, and playing on the monkey bars, merry go rounds, teeter totters and high slides, none of which are on playgrounds any longer,” said Betsy Heist Brown. “We played marbles like Boulders and Steelies at South Lawn Elementary in the early 1970s,” said Kenn Kiser. “We ‘flipped’ baseball and football cards in middle school in the 1970s (flipping for teams or colors to win). We'd sometimes get together for pick-up basketball or football games outside of school, and often played ‘jungle’ ball (almost no rules).” For the Service You Deserve Marc Lacy 740.502.3074 Paul Bratton Auctioneer 740.327.6331 Kyle Myers 740.502.2383 Jessica Reed 740.502.6095 Darlene Guess 740.502.2920 Kelly Shrimplin 740.502.6692 Christy Dickerson John 740.507.0664 Thomas 740.502.4342 Debbie Myers 740.502.1589 218 Cambridge Rd., Coshocton YES www.coshoctonauctions.com 12-B THE BEACON www.oldetownrealtyoh.com 740-622-3669 100 YEARS OF FURNITURE...
