Playground Fun

Playground Fun

How quintessentially British — a site that explains the rules for playground games. Even better, the rules were written by actual British schoolchildren. Topics covered include "Chasing," "Catching each other," "Searching games," "Ball games," "Circle or ring games," "Contest games," "Old school games," and "Clapping & skipping games." The site is sponsored by the British Council's "Department for Culture, Media, and Sport." How delightful to learn that our Dodge Ball is also known as "Kingy," "Ball Tig," or "Deadball."
