Here are some of the games we play,"Tig Blindmans Buff, Ghost in the garden, Hide and seek, Putting the donkey's tail on."
In "Putting the donkey's tail on" we draw a donkey and somebody tries to put a tail on it with her eyes shut.
On Winter nights we play games of cards called, "Twenty five, Old Maid, Begger my neighbor and snap."
