Last week I featured as a guest writer on Netmums Blog with a post entitled Playground Games from our Childhood. In this I talk about sharing my childhood games with my girls, games that are in danger of being lost if they are not passed down.
Moving abroad has made me more aware of my heritage. It is a little clichéd that when one moves away from home there is a sudden urge to become patriotic. Yes, I fly union jack bunting, I bake Welsh cakes for the soccer team and feel the urge to re-learn Welsh folk songs but it is not because I need to make a statement, rather that I want my girls to understand what being British means. We love embracing a new culture but I think it would be sad if our own childhoods were completely alien to the girls.
If you’d like to help to preserve traditional games for this generation then I’d love you to join in the link below with any posts about your own childhood games, traditions you have shared with your children or thoughts about modern play.
