Coming soon... Skedaddle Games showing you how to play traditional games like hand clap, string games, jump rope, elastics, marbles.... games for on your own or with your friends, neighbours and even parents and grandparents. Games that have lasted for centuries because they are the best games ever!
Meghan Lagdon was inundated with requests by schools to come and visit them and show them how to play traditional games after she did workshops at her own kid's school. Meghan found the kids, of all ages, boys and girls loved mastering the games and it set off many a new (from old) fad in the school yard. But she couldn't get to all those schools. But she had an idea...
"These sort of games used to be passed down from generation to generation but slowly we are losing them. However these games are fun, cheap and don't require much equipment if any and they help you develop your memory, cordination and social skills. There are books on these games but it is much easier to be shown how to do them than to try and figure them out from a book."
So Meghan Lagdon wanted to create a DVD series and that's where I came in and after a few stops and starts our test pilot is almost here! The question is DVD or online or mobile or TV ...??? Put it on your Christmas list anyhow!
