Just to make it easier, I'll make it multiple choice, because sometimes I have trouble picking just one selection & maybe you do, too!

Recess was always my favorite class.

We also had a basketball court and a volleyball court (if that's what it's called for volleyball). I spent most of my time playing ball, but I did enjoy monkeying around on the monkey bars, swinging, and sliding down the slide.

Does anyone else remember when cereal boxes were lined with wax paper, and/or using that to make the playground slide faster?

I loved all of them! Had a playground behind my house growing up so I spent a lot of time on all these.

I was a nut for swings. Before they started making me feel sick I would have my music in my ears going and I would be daydreaming while swinging xD I wouldn't realize I would nearly go over the bar sometimes.

I'm glad it's a multiple choice. I like swings, slides, monkey bars, and merry go rounds. I loved to swing really high when I was a kid, and one time I overdid it, and flopped onto the ground and had a bad bloody nose!

Psh totally the swings. They're good if you want to be alone, but are also good if you want to talk to your friend, and can still be destructive by jumping off of them!

The swings all the way! I still go on swings whenever I see them when we are out and about.

The merry go round, I just loved twirling around on it and hanging on for dear life to the large pipes that was attached to it.

I remember that wax paper liners! I just never saw them used for the slide, that is ingenious! Whether or not it worked, it's a clever idea!

I love the feeling of soaring through the air on the swing. So much fun.

I was a big big fan of the swing set. Especially the illusive one that didn't squeek, let you swing extra high, and who's seat was not horridly uncomfortable.

I agree - we went wild trying to get that merry go round to faster - haven't seen one for years. I assume its too dangerous for today's coddled kids.

It worked! Actually, it still works, on metal slides at least, if you use regular wax paper. My mom, being thrifty, always used the cereal box liners for the slide in our neighborhood park. When the slide at school started to get slow, I'd bring a liner from home and treat it.

Anything I can climb on. Thats what my super long ape like arms are for! My wingspan is actually 3 inches longer than I am tall.

"super long ape like arms" You ever get recruited into swimming? That long reach would have been perfect!

@ spiced, That waxed paper for the slide is just so smart, but using the cereal box liner is just so clever of your mom!
