Games for kids of the world


Games for Kids of the World is a free downloadable ebook that gathers a collection of games that kids around the world enjoy playing. The games are simple and don’t need complicated equipment, so they can be played anytime and everywhere. There are games from Italy, South Africa, India, Argentina, and more (15 countries in total). Each chapter (or country) starts with a sweet little introduction and lovely watercolours illustrate the games. Such fun too read about the different games children play — and interesting to see that some games from the other side of the world are known here too (Di? Sh?u Juàn from China, for instance). In any case, I’m going to play ‘What time is it, Mr Wolf?’ a game from the UK, with my kids tonight! It will be fun!

‘what time is it, mr wolf’, is a child hood classic. We used to play tht in the playground at school, or at home, where we old almost certainly end up giggling our heads off, as my mum would be tickling us, about to gobble us up! such a fun game! Enjoy x

Hi Esther! Thanks for this lovely write up. What time is it Mr Wolf was one of my favourites as a child, so I was quite excited to see my (Italian) nieces and nephews were playing it recently. Hope you had fun playing!
