Children’s playtime is encouraged on this island. These days, children’s play time is more defined by video games and screen time. But children still do a lot of playing outside.
When I was a little girl, we looked forward to the weekends (holidays too). That is the time when we would get our ‘free paper.’ All the chores would get done early and we would have time to play with friends.
Children are even allowed to go to the river with friends to splash around and play.
Games like Hopscotch, Chinese Skip, Hide and Seek and Bat and Ball were games we usually played. Sometimes, parents would come out and watch too, and it would all be fun. Or maybe too much fun.
Most times, I had too much fun on the weekends! I would end up being so tired and restless, and dream about all the games, and sometimes sleep walk too. Let’s just say I enjoyed my childhood♥
As an adult, I carry on the fun by getting outside and playing games, especially with my nephews and niece when we gather as a family☺
