    The unforgotten outside games of children

    In the past children used to spend time together, and play games outside. Nowadays, when many games have been forgotten, children tend to spend less time playing outdoors. At the same time, games have a huge educational value. They have a great influence on children’s physical, emotional, social development as well as their communicational skills. The aim of our project (The Unforgotten Outside Games of Children) was to remind children about outdoor games, and allow them to spend their time in a joyful as well as valuable way. Schools which took part in the project have fulfilled the abovementioned aim in the following ways: 1) interviews with children and parents about how children spent their free time in the past and how they spend it nowadays, 2) project meetings during which children, with teachers help, taught themselves how to play games from their countries 3) preparing films in which games are presented 4) creating the book of games In the course of the project, it turned out that games are a great occasion for establishing social relationships. Children were able to overcome their initial hesitation very quickly. They communicated really well, both verbally and non-verbally, while getting to know their culture, customs and lifestyle. We promoted the project in our schools as well as local communities through: logo of the project competition, project board at schools, uploading different kinds of materials concerning the project on our schools’ websites, local press and web articles. We believe that the results achieved during the project may be used in our school as well as any other schools. In order to disseminate the results of the project we created a website on which all the materials have been uploaded (including the book of games). The evaluation that has been conducted at schools, confirms that the aims of the project are fulfilled: children know more games and they eagerly play them in their free time. Games are also used in given lessons.
