Old Photos of Children Playing

 Childhood has almost always been an innocent time of exploration, adventure, and imagination. Though I sometimes wonder if today's kids are missing out on all the great fun we used to have when I was young. Because they have so many amazing toys, cellphones, and video games, perhaps they actually are less good at making their own fun.
 
Take a look at these rare photos of adorable youngsters enjoying themselves, and share them with your friends to remind the world how important the simple things in life are.
