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.> > Debora of Durham.> _______________________________________________> Ansteorra mailing list> Ansteorra at lists.ansteorra.org> http://lists.ansteorra.org/listinfo.cgi/ansteorra-ansteorra.org
