    Solo Play?

    Shop Now
    Any ideas for solo play that you do and you'd like to share?

    Just something you do when you want to play but there's no one to play with...

    I like riding my bike, for fun, not pushing it, just cruising around, makes me feel like a kid again, also the batting cage is fun and you don't have to share the balls with anyone.

    Also: driving range. It's especially fun if you suck at hitting golf balls.

    Wow, yeah, I want to play like a kid again! I might take over the playground in the morning before the kids use it. I'd be shy trying to lumber all over their turf

    I shared the playground with my niece and some other kids last weekend, it was FUN! The adults looked at me like I was crazy, but hey, who doesn't want to climb around on monkey bars and slide on slides? By the way you won't be all over their turf, they'll love that a big kid wants to play with them.

    Yep, I do this whenever I can. My kids absolutely love it when I do. I do get those looks from the other parents, but who gives a rat's ass what they think anyway.

    i like hiking, biking and climbing on things mostly. but i'm also a fan of just shooting baskets on a basketball court, or finding a tennis court with a practice wall. and disc golf. i absolutely love disc golf.

    Ok, I haven't done this, but I probably would if I was ever really alone.

    Get one of those large, soft inflatable balls you seen in the giant bins at Target, Walmart, etc... Take it to the park, and bat it in the air like a volleyball. Now stay under it and try to keep it from hitting the ground.

    I used to do this when I was a kid, and it was a lot of fun and good exercise without having to think too much about what to do. For an indoor version, use an air filled balloon.

    (Also, this thread could have gone an entirely different way...)

    I'm still waiting for someone to chime in with a joke about playing with yourself.

    Edit - Missed this the first time through:
