Remember the days the clock ticked four and you ran out to get your hands dirty with your pals. Those outdoor games, team spirit, fun times and beautiful sunshine is now replaced with smartphones, tablets and play stations.
Reverse time and introduce your tiny tot to your golden childhood. Wondering how to do it? We have an answer for it. Turn into your little one’s playmate and introduce them to the golden days and golden games of your childhood.
Here are five childhood games that you should reintroduce to your children to take them down your memory lane.
Whatever the gender, whatever the age, hopscotch is the game that is a hit among all kinds of kids.
Playing Hopscotch is a breeze as it only requires a piece of chalk, a pebble and a gang of friends. Draw the traditional pattern on the floor, flip the pebble and jump away. It not only is a lot of fun but also serves a perfect cardio.
Jump front, jump back, jump alone or in a pair. However you skip on a rope, it is truckloads of fun. Remember those skip rope tournaments you had with your neighbour kids? Those do or die situations, in which you kept jumping to win?
Introduce skip rope to your kids to teach them true sportsman spirit.
