Broad smiles and spontaneous laughter marked the debut of the Lawn Games for Life campaign presented for the first time by SafeLawns at the Philadelphia Flower Show on Monday night. These old-fashioned hoops (from Cooperman in Vermont) were a precursor to the plastic hula hoops that became popular in 1958. (Tony Cerveny photos)

SafeLawns founder Paul Tukey, co-author of the book, Tag, Toss & Run, invited audience members up on stage to attempt several games that are included in the book.
