Do you remember playing the Hot Lava game as a kid, it's now a game show on Netflix.

Hot Lava Was A Popular Kids Game Back In The Day This makes me feel like the grumpy old man in the neighborhood that yells at you to stay off his grass saying this, but back when I was a kid the parents would make their kids go outside and play. There were no screen time issues. In reality, that's where we wanted to be anyway. We were afraid if we stuck around the house our moms would give us chores to do.

Our imagination was our internet. My friends and I would make up games and stuff to do all the time. There were also the old school favorites like Ghost In The Graveyard, Freeze Tag, and Dodgeball to name just a couple. One of the more popular games in my neighborhood was Hot Lava. It was pretty simple. The ground was hot lava. If you touched it, you would burn up, and get knocked out of the game. We would set up obstacles to climb on. Last person standing won the game.
