Have you ever wondered what people played about 50 years ago? Well, here are your answers. I was lucky enough to interview my grandma who is now 64 years old. So take 50 years away from that and she was 14. So here are some games that my grandma played when she was 14 years old!
I asked her what her favorite game was to play when she was about my age and she told me jacks and hopscotch. A lot of people now a days still play hopscotch but jacks, not so much. So the rules for hopscotch,or the "older" rules were these:Can't go over the line/box Use only one foot And that is about it.
Now the next game that she loved were jacks. Jacks is a game where you have ten jacks and one ball then you trow the balls and jacks have to be picked up one by one while dropping the ball. Here are the main rules for that game:
Can't touch other jacks
Pick up one by one
Throw ball up and catch it
I tried playing both of these games and they are both really pretty fun. They are also kind of exiting and heart-jumping. Well, I hope that you will try these fun-fr-all-ages games because they really are enjoyable.
