14 Classic Games We’ve All Grown Up Playing

Hide and Seek

Let’s relive those days…
…when the words ‘kho’ and ‘dhappa’ would give us mini heart attacks,
when spinning a top or flying a kite would be the highlight of the day,
when a handful of marbles or stones could keep us hooked till the sun called it a day…

So hide the play station and teach your little-one one of these, this weekend… Make some lemonade, call over the neighborhood kids, and watch them have fun, while you drift back to your childhood! What’s better, join in for a surprise dhappa!
