What’s fun at recess? Kids say they like kickball and four square

COLONIAL PLAYGROUND — What are kids doing at recess? The Colonial Times interviewed three kids to see if they’re enjoying themselves.

High-flying balls were in the air as the kids played kickball. Emmett said kickball interested him everyday “but it’s not played so much.”

The other kids like kickball “but they like football more,” he said.

Kelly Gallivan, a second grader, played four square, which is one of the popular activities.

There are two four square boxes. Kelly played in the one closer to the jungle gym.

“I like outdoor recess,” Kelly said. “I run around and play with Grace.”

Claire Holtege also played four square. “I’m having fun at recess. Four square interests me sometimes,” she said, but she didn’t “think it’s that popular.”
