I’m wondering what outdoor games you all played as kids. Some I remember are All over red rover, elastics and stuck in mud.

  • bike riding, elastics, hitting balls against the walls

  • I wasn’t fond of outdoor games – though I remember taking my book outside, if that counts!

  • Any and all ball games with the neighbourhood kids. Big fans of Red Rover Cross Over, British Bulldog, handball, roller skating/skateboarding, bike riding, YoYo’s, Jacks, elastics. Ah the good old days

  • Tag or it; sticky toffee; British Bull Dog; skipping with skipping rhymes; piggy in the middle; catch with a ball; clapping hand games; “in and out the dusty bluebells”

  • I remember playing hours and hours of handball with my brother.
