I think we played a game in camp called Pig where there was a leader and then you needed to put your finger on your nose when the leader did it. The last one out was the "Pig."

We also played a game at birthday parties with a tray. The Mom would bring in the tray of objects and the girls would get a quick look. Then, the Mom would take it out of the room, remove an object, and come back in. The first girl to notice which object was missing would get a prize.

Don't know if today's kids would be engaged, but these were simpler times and parties were very homemade.

And while we're adding what's with we pass the ball around, around and around.
Do kids still play Gaga? Or Gaga elemination?
Anyone remembers singing 99 bottles of beer on the wall when we needed to pass time?

I remember playing galuchim every day by recess even though officially we weren’t allowed to because girls would get hurt. We would say one two three galuchim though

And hit the deck. Then there was a game where one girl leaned on the wall and a whole group of kids took chances trying to hit her.
This thread is bringing back so many memories. I loved loved sports.

We went to Esty's house, Esty has the measles, we gave the Dr. 50 cents, and pop goes the measles!
