Can you recognise any of these names? For some, the mere mention of these will evoke nostalgia for summer days spent playing in the outdoors with friends, rapt in the magic of these childhood games—often played in shared spaces.
But with the advance of the virtual, many of these games have succumbed to erasure—forgotten by each successive generation. These games advance skills such as critical thinking, improvisation, concentration and hand-eye coordination, besides imparting crucial qualities of socialising and teamwork. Join OOO Farms in an effort to supplement conventional educational models that focus solely on academics with indigenous and vernacular typologies of games that bring joy to parents and children alike.
