The children had a great time playing the game of Jacks. Trying to pick up Jacks and catch the ball in the same hand was not an easy task! In colonial times this was called Jackstones.
The kids had so much fun trying to get the ring onto the wooden stand. Today we call this game ring toss. In colonial times this game was called, Quoits.
Hopscotch is another fun game many children play today that was popular during the colonial times!
