Computer games and video games have become popular with children today. As a

result, outdoor games seem to have no place in their life anymore. You are

Satish/Sakshi. You had the opportunity of playing Hide-n-Seek when you visited

your cousins i n a small town. You decide to write an article on your experiences

about the joys of playing outdoor games for the school magazine. Write the article

in 150-200 words.

Such questions are asked to help in building your writing as well as creative skills, hence an attempt at answering them on your own should be made. However, you can incorporate and elaborate upon the points mentioned below to form your own answer:
  • One of the greatest joys of childhood, is getting to explore the world outside the confines of your home and having fun while at it.
  • The entire world is an unchartered territory, and being the explorer gives one immense joy and satisfaction.
  • Most of my childhood has been spent, playing outdoors, and interacting with other children and adults.
  • Not only does it keep you physically active and fit, playing outdoors is also a great exercise in enhancing your social skills.
  • With the advent of computers, video games etc. children prefer to stay indoors, and this has in turn given birth to a new sedentary lifestyle, that is much harmful rather than being beneficial.
  • We are producing a generation that is riddled with obesity and is socially dysfunctional, the rising cases on crime and violence in youth is also a direct result of such a lifestyle.
  • It is best that we inculcate in the younger generation a love for the outdoors, and ensure that they learn about the world much through experience and lesser through being stuck indoors.
