This is where I was going to take a photo a day in 2012 but forgot to stop. I also write something random to give you an insight into the craziness that is Susan's mind.
Susan, I must be very old school as I fondly remember all the same things as you except for "elastic". Lovely hop scotch photo looking very old school! Thanks for linking up.
Rules are here http://www.ehow.com/how_7350088_play-elastic-kids-games.html Apparently it is called French skipping too. Never knew that (or more likely I forgot)
I remember the game with elastic. Isn't it French skipping, or have I made that up! Like cats cradle but with three people; 2 with the elastic hooped around them, a third jumping in and out and taking the elastic with them. Ankle height for beginners, higher up the legs for the experts! Great fun! Feeling nostalgic now. :-)
That's the one!
We used to love French Skipping, Hop Scotch, Tig, another game with chalk that we drew in the shape of a big snail with numbers, but I can't remember what it's called. Lovely pictures by the way! :)
I'm 27 and we used to use the elastic in the playground and play with marbles... although pogs were the proper craze. Great pictures x
