“You must invent your own games and teach us old ones how to play.” — Nikki Giovanni

What are your children’s favorite games? Do they make up their own? And have you figured out the rules?


Play more games at Beth’s on Thursday.

  1. Beautiful! Ah, the wonders of imagination and being a kid with the world as your playground. Well captured.

  2. I love that it’s the yogurt containers that are played with, not the ‘toys’. Flowers are huge here too. So much so my husband says I plant them, she picks them. Bare.

    I love seeing a game form between my girls, rules totally unclear to me, but they know. Wow.

  3. Love the shot of little bebe in the tub!

    Rex is moving into the open drawer, empty drawer, put everything back into drawer phase as well as the run car, truck, etc. up wall/Mommy/Daddy/dog phase. Both are quite adorable.

  4. Love this 🙂

  5. I love seeing kids play. Alas, my own child did not get the “play contentedly with whatever you can find” gene. I wonder if it’s hereditary??? 😉

  6. My son’s still at an age where peek-a-boo’s his favorite game. He passes most of his time in random endeavors that don’t (for the most part) resemble games but make him happy, which in turn makes me happy. 🙂 He did have a good time on the see-saw with his rock yesterday, and loves everything playground-related . . . but most of it not to “game” level yet. Another thing to look forward to!

    I love the black and white photo most of all, but each is sweet!

  7. These are all such fun photos. The baby in the tub surrounded by toys brings me back a few years. Really great captures!

  8. I love that last shot! : )

  9. Looks like fun. Precious children.

  10. Love the bathtub pics! Looks like our bathtub- ALL the toys must be in there. Such cute captures!

  11. oh the bathtub pictures are so fun, love the shot!

  12. I LOVE that quote!! and it is so very true!

  13. That’s one heckuva checker board!

  14. Unfortunately, my house has been overtaken by video games, even with the little guy! But they do enjoy when we pull out a board game and everyone plays together!

  15. Love the bath tub pics and the giant checkers!

  16. Beautiful photos, beautiful babes, beautiful quote, beautiful questions.

    Our favorite games include anything and everything to do with Legos, building castles out of any available material, and trying to ride on our siblings and parents as though they were pack animals.

  17. Games get made up here all the time. I try to learn the rules, but they seem to shift! I mostly just enjoy the show (until someone starts crying). My oldest is that kid at the park who invents crazy games and scenarios and gets a bunch of kids to play along — love that about him!

  18. I love the bath time shots!! Lots of fun toys!

  19. Love the first shot. So fun. And the quote at the end is delicious.

  20. love that huge checkers set! fun pictures – lots of playing, gaming going on here 🙂

  21. Beautiful pics!!
