Those are fantastic! I especially like the one that tires them out...

> Hello all,
> While at BAM this past weekend I had a few MOC come into the Game Pavilion requesting information on suitable, or different, period games for children. Whilst this isn't specifically my area I have obviously come across much information during the course of my research. Therefore, I'm thinking of creating a small booklet/handout if there is enough demand. Otherwise I'm happy to give individual answers.
> Many medieval adult active 'games'?could be reclassified for children. I cannot see the fighters having a competition to see who can hop on one leg the longest while in armor, but this manly period pastime can easily be adapted into a children's game which would tire?youngsters out a little in preparation for quieter activities.
> Another example is bubble catching. The idea is one person blows the bubbles; the others try to catch one on?their pillows and safely carry it back to the 'blower' where if successful they receive a prize, (or perhaps a kiss if played by adults as was done in period).
> Let me know.
