The Joy of Traditional Games

Traditional Games are literally a breath of fresh air! In this era of screens everywhere and all aspects of life requiring online presence and space, isn’t it really nice to find a balance between the online world and create space away from it too?

At RDF, we always encourage our children to continue playing traditional games and spend time outdoors. This is relatively easier in rural areas as most of our rural students belong to agricultural families.

During the 1st term holidays, we saw children spending their leisure time outdoors, playing football, catch and throw and role playing farming practices!  We saw a group of our students pretending to be cows and another students acting like a farmer. They prepared a model plough to be used to cultivate the land!

We were so happy to see their creativity and play show up in a way that directly reflects their reality. The role playing also demonstrated their understanding of farm work.
