10 Magical Snapshots Of Children Playing Outside Before Smartphones Were Around


Do you remember the times when you used to play all day long out on the streets as a kid? Having fun with the most mundane things, being together with other kids of the neighborhood or just running around aimlessly until it was time to go to bed again?

The following little series shows 10 photos of children playing before there was a lot of entertainment at home.
