We play many games at school...

We play many games at school such as, Dan Dan, Blind Man's Buff, Hide and Seek, Frog in the middle, Tipping, Ghost in the Garden, (?), Around the green gravel, and Roses Gary.
Ghost in the Garden is the nicest game of all. This is how it is played. First the ghost is picked out of a group of children & then the mother. The ghost follows and catches all the children and pretends to eat them.
They used to play jackstones long ago but they do not play it al all now. Colour & (?) are more games we play too.
