Children’s games in World War II

In the 1941’s there were no plastics or electronics, toys were made of wood or metal or textiles and if you were lucky enough they had a clockwork mechanism!

Lots of games that we play now had been invented by then, card games and chess are hundreds of years old, such as Scrabble and Monopoly, hopscotch, tag / it, sardines, tug-o-war, the list is endless….

Find some of the games that children played then and have a go, if you can, be outside, it’s a lovely day!
