As we are going down memory lane, lets see what sort of games you played in your area of England as a child.
Pick up Jacks
Hop Scotch
Marbles
And was it called french skipping, when you had a long piece of elastic stretched with a person each end, and you did all sorts of patterns with your feet jumping around.
this was another one singing songs with a partner and doing different movements with your hands.

marbles mainly, leapfrog and dangerous stuff like flying down the middle of the road sat on a Dandy or Beano annual strapped to a single roller-skate! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

whip and top, you used to colour the top in different colours so it would look good when it was spinning. Those were the days.

Well, Annette has mentioned her childhood games and now I remember some of mine which included a Meccano set, I was always building cranes but don't know why, I never had a go on one. My other great favourite was the Hornby 'O' series electric train, these were super and cost a fortune to buy now. This was long before my drum kit in the bedroom days!!

The boys at our school played something called "
British Bulldog"
. I can remember my brother getting
his head whacked against a wall because of it. (That explains a lot now!)
Probably be banned in this day and age.

We used to play "
chicky nelly"
(goodness knows where the name came from!"
) - ringing doorbells
and running away or hiding!
We probably thought we were really daring.
