What fun things do you do with your kids?

Everyone keeps talking about the benefits of unstructured or free play and just wondering what games you play with your kids?

I don't know if it's free play, but my kids love going for a walk/bike ride around the lake or a little bushwalk. They are 2 and 4 and really love to explore outside.
