Grandparents Games

How to play is changing, and that the grandparents are well aware. In the past in many families the toys were a luxury.

A friend native to a Galician village has told me that the first time he saw a toy was at the age of eight years: a doll; gift from an aunt who came from the city and his mother before that precious object decided to hang it on the wall so that it is not damaged, but not have toys not prevented him from playing, there were traditional or popular games also known at the mercy of those who want to play them.

In spite of the changes of our time, there are games that refuse to die, games that have been handed down from generation to generation and have even spread to different countries with variables that children invent depending on the cultural environment. Games as the hen blind, to the sea Viper, rice pudding, tula or pilla pilla, jump rope, hide and seek; in which no more is needed than a group of children willing to have fun and share.

These games stimulate the imagination, sociability, facilitate communication, and recreate the language. They are regulated games to which children should be, very positive aspect for self-regulation, respect and coexistence. The body is the instrument to play: kids run, dance, climb, jump, stimulating and developing motor skills.
There are also on which are built the toys as the Whirligig, comets, the spin or spinning top. Or also those who daily and simple object recreates as in the handkerchief, the game of the pebbles, the stick game night or the tabas.

Many of these games have a remote origin and have been preserved through the centuries. According to Miguel Cardona author of the book “Some games of the children of Venezuela” Miss X, a game popular in many countries of Latin America is a survival of the popular Spanish dance of the 16th century known as the gibberish. The “old”, also called “rayuela”, “week”, “I set foot” or “infernáculo”, is played in different countries with slight variations, and even though its origin is not known, there is evidence that was taught by the Roman soldiers to children, during the expansion of the Empire. Handwheels, flasks, comets or parrots is of Eastern origin and the marbles game dates back to the ancient Egypt.

The truth is that traditional toys and games are a valuable cultural contribution to the playful childhood development. Unlike today’s toys, are there available to everyone, without distinction as to social categories. They are a universal heritage that we must not disappear.
