    I do not know how to open the puzzle about searching for words. Can you tell me how to do it? When I try to login in it says momokc1 and momokc1@cox.net is invalid.
    Thank you,

    strapping on a pair of those metal roller skates was great and rolling around he neighborhood. I would have kept my skates on 24/7 if I could have. Playing hide n’seek with neighborhood friends comes in second. Great times and great memories. Thanks for the stroll down memory lane

    My favorite childhood game was “red rover” where you have two teams each lined up on opposite sides and the team members hold hands and whichever team it is they say “Red rover red rover send Sally on over” and Sally runs over and tries to break through the clasped hands of the team calling for her. If she does, then she gets to go back to her team if she can’t break through she goes over to that team. First team with all the players wins! It was great fun! My second favorite was hide n seek. I loved team games!!

    Hi Everyone!
    We gave this Puzzle maker our best shot! Looks like it has a lot of quirks that need to be addressed before we’ll run with one again. In the meantime, we have updated this blog post. Look for the orange text that includes a link to download a PDF version of the puzzle. There is also a link to the Prize Page. Everyone is a winner this week! Don’t forget to post comments on your favorite childhood game.

    Thank you for your feedback and patience!

    I searched but could not find a contact button. Would you know if you have any plans of making the snap hoop for other machines? I have a Bernette Chicago 7 and would love to have a 4xSnap hoop for my quilt sandwiches.

    This isn’t an official game, but my brother always wanted to play army. Since I idolized him, I played army with him almost everyday. We would climb up a tree that was behind the garage, get on the garage roof, and jump off and ambush anyone that was walking by. I don’t remember him playing Barbie with me very much though. Lol.

    Oh my goodness, so many wonderful memories! I loved playing Chinese checkers with my mom, oh how I miss her, Battle station with my baby brother, jacks as I could play those by myself. After marriage I enjoyed playing Uno with my mother and father in-law.

    My favorite game was playing jacks with a girlfriend to see who could get to all 10 jacks at one time was the winner. For those who might not know what Jacks and a ball are it is a little metal piece like a dimensional star or 5 prongs. First try was to pick up one a time without a miss. then next turn was to pick up 2 at a time without a miss and so forth. My 2 sisters and I played a lot together as well as my best girlfriend.

    My favorite childhood games were kickball & softball. We had a big open field in our neighborhood & all the kids would play together until dusk almost every night. No competition just plain fun. Thanks for bringing back the memories everyone enjoyed as kids :o)

    Summer nights playing “SPUD” – one person would throw the ball as high in the air as they could. The person who was it had to catch the ball. As soon as the ball was caught, the other players had to stop where they were. The person who was it would then take four of the biggest steps he/she could to spell out S-P-U-D. He/she would throw the ball and try to hit one of the other players. If he/she was hit, he/she would become it!
