In our humble opinion you can’t beat a spot of elastics (aka French skipping) grin What were your favourites?

Lots of them. In the playground, marbles was my favourite. The boys always thought they'd have the upper hand 😂 over the girls but I was rather good at the games and won many more than all of them grin. I only wish I'd kept most of the marbles because some of them were beautiful.

Twiggy in 2 dens (the shooting areas on the netball court were the dens, someone was "it" and the aim was to get from one den to the other without getting tigged- then you were "it". Simple times.

Skipping games with a big rope, but it was usually a piece of washing line.
