When my brother and I were kids, there were no video games, no personal computers, no smartphones or any other kind of phone you could take with you…and no internet. So, a lot of times when we were looking for something to do, we’d make up a silly little game.
Sometimes we’d see how many bounces it would take to get a tennis ball into a trash can. Other times we’d get our 5-speed bikes out, find our friends, grab some bats and a tin can, and we’d all play our own version of polo. Not too smart because almost every time someone would get a knee or shin banged by a bat. But c’mon…we were young kids. What did we know? It was fun anyway.
Other times, when rainy weather came around, we’d think up a silly little game with our collection of toys. Like one time I remember taking an electric car I had gotten for Christmas…and my brother’s giant tank he’d gotten…and we had battles to see who’s toy had the most power. I don’t remember who won, but we had fun.
What about you? Have you ever come up with a silly little game that made no sense but was a lot of fun? If so, share it with me. I’ll let everyone else know.
Today we’re gonna play a silly little game.
To play you’re gonna need a silly little name.
So I’m gonna call you Silly Little Sy
No matter if you’re a girl or a guy.
Then you have to look at your silly little friend.
They can be real or you can pretend.
Now look at your friend with a silly little face…
Tell them you’re thinking of a silly little place.
They have to think up a silly little thought
That might describe your silly little spot.
If they get it right, smile a silly little smile.
If they get it wrong, run a silly little mile
In a circle on the floor in a silly little way
And just have fun all the silly little day.
OK, that’s the game you Silly Little Sy.
You might be asking a silly little “why”.
Remember I started with a silly little claim…
It’s all for fun…this silly little game.
