The games we call “traditional” are the games that children, all around the world, have played throughtout history.
- MARBLES: You can play marbles with your thumb and your index finger. Push the ball with your thumb and try to hit another marble. The rules of this game are different all over the world.
- THE SPINNING TOP: The spinning top is a wooden cone with a metal point. You wrap the cord around the cone and throw it onto the ground making it spin as it falls. When it hits the ground, it will spin around.
REMEMBER: Long before school existed, children learnt many things from playing games and developed their capacities for socializing.
Today, games are a very important part of our lives.
