When the weekend rolls around, the possibilities for children are endless. Or are they? There used to be very many unique games that were played by kids everywhere. Nowadays, recreational activities for the young ones have been largely reduced to playing video games and surfing the online world. Back in the day, though, child’s play had a certain thing about it. It was all about adventure, dexterity, aim, and other physical skills. But, mostly, it was about having loads of fun.
