Examples of Traditional Games

We call traditional games to children’s games that do not need toys with complex technology , that is, they are games that are carried out using relatively simple objects and toys, or through the use of the body itself and available resources such as courtyards, gardens, branches, leaves, stones, buttons, seeds, common utensils such as clothes, shoes, etc. as well as those in which the use of “traditional” toys such as dolls and dolls (made of rag, wood, or other materials), kites (kites), balls, dice, whirligigs, marbles, toy soldiers, strollers, yo-yos. , lotteries, snakes and ladders, the goose and more.

Many of these games are important during the first years of infants , both because they allow them a better social and emotional development, regarding their development with other children, as well as because they help them develop motor skills, especially those games. in which exercises such as running, jumping, bending and performing similar movements are involved.

Although currently there is a wide range of sophisticated and technologically advanced games, such as computer games, mechanical and electronic toys, as well as virtual ones among others. Many children prefer to entertain themselves with traditional games that are taught to them by their elders (parents, grandparents, schoolmates or siblings), being that in this way ancestral traditions prevail, as in the case of many traditional games of peoples around the world, that have lasted from generation to generation despite the changes that occur over time. So this type of game, in addition to being a good and healthy form of entertainment, is part of the cultural heritage of the peoples .

Traditional games are used by infants either at home, at school, parks and even on the streets, depending on both the particular game and the conditions (weather, use of a particular object such as “lotteries”, etc.).

It is important to point out that several of these games are known in different places with different names , and that many of these games tend to vary in terms of rules and uses, both depending on the region, and due to the same changes that infants usually make to the run them.
