This week's "DQYD Top 5" is inspired by our guest Abs Marie. If you haven't listened to the episode yet, Abbi is a hoop instructor, and runs Hoops of a Feather, so we set out to make our top 5 lists based on exercise and heirloom-based themes.
Do you agree with our picks? Let us know in the comments below, and feel free to add your own top 5 lists!
Farrin's Top 5 Playground Activities
Pick 5: Duck, Duck, Goose
The classic Duck, Duck, Goose. Tap the heads of your friends (while avoiding head lice) and pick on your crushes. This game was surely at all playgrounds
Pick 4: Tag
Tag you're it! Probably the original game played by all of child kind. Make sure you don't skin a knee while playing this one.
Pick 3: Jump Rope
I was never good at this, but jumping rope was a hit on a number of play grounds. Could you double Dutch?
Pick 2: Hopscotch
Hopscotch...not like scotch in a lowball glass...was quite the fun time for our uncoordinated legs back in the day. I dare you to try it at full speed today!
Pick 1: Four Square
Another popular game played by most: Four Square. I literally didn't play it until my freshman year of college in an extreme version with full body dives.
Drew's Top 5 Hand-Me-Downs
Pick 5: Clothing
One of the biggest things that gets handed down to others. It's not uncommon to get second hand baby clothing, or, for those of us that aren't the oldest child, clothing that your older sibling has outgrown.
Pick 4: Toys
Much like clothing, these things get outgrown after a time.
Pick 3: Photos
Photos are literally a window into the past. Typically, it's old family photos that have been passed down several generations where you won't even recognize half the people in them.
Pick 2: Recipes
One of my personal favorites. Family recipes that have been refined a perfected over the course of many years. Not only do you know how to create a delicious meal, but there's often a strong sense of nostalgia attached to some of your childhood favorites that will take you back.
Pick 1: Jewelry
Arguably one of the most popular things that get handed down from generation to generation. Especially engagement rings and timepieces that hold a lot of sentimental value.
