Childhood Games....what did you play???

Growing up, I remember lots of games that we played in the yard to pass time away.  Do you remember any of these:  Shake it Senorita, Red Light/Green Light, Simon Says, or hand clapping games like Miss Mary Mack?  Whatever your game of choice back then, I often now think that it is such a tragedy that our children miss out on this backyard creativity and fun because of the replacement of video games and electronics.  So when I saw this fun-filled game with Ethiopian children entertaining one another and the flecks of joys in their eyes and smiles as they sang in unison, my heart was captivated.  Take a look....



What about you?  What games stole your heart as a child that you absolutely loved playing with your family or friends?
