We had the most eventful Ulwazi meeting this month! Neli wrote about some of the traditional games that Zulu children play, and instead of telling us about them, she had us play them! It was great fun! What was interesting was how similar these games are to Western children’s games, and I wonder if you looked at different cultures across the world if you wouldn’t see the same similarities? It would seem that the things that children find entertaining don’t differ that much between cultures.
