Introducing traditional games in the Philippines

Speaking in English is a requirement in the house in consideration to my husband’s spoken language. But this should not stop me from introducing the things that I have outgrown with – the traditional games that we have in the Philippines. To name a few, these are:

  • Patintero
  • Tumbang Preso
  • Luksong-Baka
  • Luksong-Tinik
  • Piko
  • Chinese Garter
  • Tinikling
  • Pitik-bulag
  • Syato
  • Sawsaw Suka

Now that Deye has entered the stage when these games are usually played, I am ready to finally introduce these to her one by one, soon! If time permits, I would also gladly include yoyo (not the spinabolo), pick up sticks, jackstone and hulahoop to her.
