The game takes a lot of leaps and precision to hit the limited space, and it flexes and strengthens joints and agility perfectly. You need at least three players to play, though in the absence of a third, some games may also use some of the park props, such as a bench, yard, wood, or band. Popular jumping was with the song:

“The ballerina, Rococo, raises her legs high, as she jumps well, her panties are seen, and her husband, the ballet dancer, raises her feet to the attic.”

Kolariću, paniću

This game is played as a wheel. Children hold hands in an open circuit. The player at the back (the last one) and the player next to him raise their hands to him and everyone else rolls between them. The rider on the opposite side of the car leads the bike toward the “passage”. All the kids play and sing and they ride around and ride to the place they started. When everyone passes the penultimate child, he or she remains in the wrong position, ie. made a “knot” around. The cyclist then proceeds to take the bike to the new passageway, until the other children become entangled. When all the children are entangled, the car unravels with the same song. The song sounds like this:

“Kolarić, panic, we knit alone, we tangle ourselves, we flatten ourselves.”


A piece of chalk and a writing surface – concrete or asphalt – and all the playing conditions of the school are fulfilled. As the school is drawn, you probably still remember – one dice, then two in a row, then one again, and so on. How many fields there are depends on you and the child. When drawn, numbers should be entered in each field, from 1 upwards. Then it should be equipped with a pebble stone (it can also serve your chalk piece). If one child is playing, he or she, at the start, throws a pebble into box 1, jumps to it, picks a pebble and returns to the beginning. The child jumps on one leg to the marked field, and if he lowers the other leg, hits a field that is out of order or fits on the drawn frame, starts over. When he plays more children together, with every mistake made, the player hands the pebble to the next child, and so on until the first completes all the fields in a row, thus becoming the winner. More experienced children can make the game more interesting by throwing the subject backwards, jumping with both feet, squinting … The game is great for developing a sense of space, precision and strengthening the joints and muscles of the legs.

Puštanje zmajeva

This is a pastime where the child will need a lot of parental help and it will not be easy for you at first. It is important that you do not try to release the kite unless strong winds blow, because you will run out to exhaustion and you will not be able to lift the kite. Bypass trees in a wide arc.

Rock scissors paper

The game is very simple. Saying “paper, stone, scissors” and shaking your fists, you need to think of which of the three symbols you will put: paper (open fist), stone (closed fist) and scissors (closed fist with two fingers outstretched).

When you decide on a symbol, you show it, and if it’s stronger than your opponent’s symbol, you win. The strength varies with the symbols: scissors are stronger than paper because scissors cut paper; the stone is stronger than the scissors because the stone breaks the scissors; and the paper is stronger than the stone because the paper packs and traps the stone.

This decides who will first select a player on their team, who will go to the store, and the like. And it can be played like this: whoever puts on a weaker symbol gets a tougher than this one with a stronger symbol.

Who loves, who loves…?

The scalp spreads and all the players fit inside it. One of the players asks, “Who loves, who loves… ice cream?” If everyone loves ice cream, everyone stays in the scoop. If something is ugly that no one likes, everyone quickly pops out of the scalp, and the worst is the one who stays last, because everyone involved in the scalp scoffs at him. It is especially tense when the asker procrastinates by saying the whole question, e.g. “Who loves cakes… from… worms?” Then, until the last moment, everyone listens carefully to whether they should jump out or stay inside, because popping for no reason also causes laughter in other players.


At the beginning of the game, an “itch” or “itch” is selected, and her task in the game is to chase other players until she can touch someone. Then the other player becomes infected with the itch and everyone starts running away, including the previous itch. The game continues until the players are tired or bored. Because this game is great for developing space orientation, coordinating movement, and warming up all the muscles, it is nowadays often used as a “warm-up” in toddler sports training.

Ledeni čika

This is a game similar to scabies, except that one player is chasing the others all the time. When he touches someone and says, “Frozen!”, He must be buried in the place, while Ice Uncle continues to rush. Players who are still untouched can touch the iced ones by touch, and for anyone to win the game, it must freeze all participants.

Colorful eggs

This game requires at least 4 players. One is the “devil”, the other is the seller, and the others are colorful eggs. Players representing the eggs, before each round, agree on who will be what colors, e.g. red, yellow, gold, etc. They are then lined up and squat to resemble eggs in a basket. When the preparations are over, the devil comes to buy eggs. The dialogue sounds like this:

Devil: “Knock, knock!”

Seller: “Who is it?”

The Devil: “The Devil on the Shovel!”

Seller: “What is it looking for?”

Devil: “Colorful eggs!”

Seller: “What colors?”

Devil: (guesses) “Yellow?”
If the devil doesn’t hit the color, he hits again. If there is a yellow egg among the players, it immediately gets up and runs away. When the devil catches him, then the captured player becomes the devil in the next round.

Rope jumping

When a child skips a rope alone, it is necessary to adjust its length beforehand. Ideally, when the child is in the middle of the rope, the arms can be lifted up to the armpits. If the rope is too long, it can be wrapped around the hand, or you can shorten it by the handle. You can jump by jumping, jumping, with both feet together or alternately, with jumps between the turns of the rope, forward, backward, moving or in place…

Skipping a rope in society means that two players hold the rope and spin it in large circles, while a third player stands between them and skips the rope.


Ideally it is played on a soft surface, ie. on the grass, so that the child can freely toss and roll for “fugitive” Frisbee, which will cause a lot of laughter and good mood. The frisbee is held in place when the thumb is at the top and the other fingers are at the bottom of the disc. The arm is bent at the elbow, at shoulder level, with the Frisbee slightly tilted upwards so that it does not end up in the grass during the summer.

Leti, leti…

In this game, the children sit forming a circle and hit the floor with their forefinger. In the middle of the circle sits a child who also bangs his finger on the floor and says, “Flies, flies, flies…” and when he finally says the name of a bird or flying device, the other children must raise their hands quickly. And if the words fly, fly, fly… say something that does not fly, children should continue to point their finger at the floor. A player in the circle has the right to confuse other players in every way possible, such as hand movements, etc. The wrong player gets out of the circle and thus out of the game.

Par – nepar

Thumbnail games that aim to hit the last digit on it or with the help of a fist and punch it are flipped to the side. As a reward, this very image would be awarded. Formerly, self-adhesive thumbnail albums were not released every month, but only on special occasions, such as the FIFA World Cup, so each thumbnail represented a real fortune.


Three or more players are required to play. First, someone who chooses to pick is chosen. He should cover his side with his hand so that his palm is open and facing the others. The others need to quietly agree on who will crush him in the palm of his hand. Then the one who was banging should judge on the strength who hit him, and if he can’t on the strength, then he tries to hit luck. If he guesses who hit him, that next rush, if not, he’s back.

Masne fote

Each player’s numbers are placed in a box or cap. The one who holds the numbers draws one by one and assigns tasks to what that person needs to do. This game is especially practiced on student excursions, and would be used to get the first kiss out of sympathy.

U šumici zeka

The children choose one bunny among themselves, while the others form a circle around him and sing a common song. The bunny sits, squats or jumps in the middle of the car. The song sounds like this:

In the bunny forest, sit, sleep, sit, sleep, poor bunny, what would you do if you couldn’t jump? Jump now, jump now!
Beware of hunting dogs, beware, they will hunt you, my lord. Jump now, jump now, jump now!

Ringe, ringe raja

Children make a circle that turns into a circle, singing the song “Ringe, ringe, paradise”. When the last word “squat” is heard in the song, everyone in the circle has to squat. The squat pulls the children, who are holding hands in the car, to fall on the grass, causing laughter. The song sounds like this:

“Ringe, ringe, paradise, a full basket of eggs, came Uncle Pai, and ate eggs, one egg husband, and we children squat”!

Berem, berem grožđe

Kids form a wheel. A guard is standing in the middle of the car. Children stand or turn in circles and sing, and with movements they stimulate the harvest of grapes. They watch the guard carefully because as soon as they say the last words of the song, he will start chasing them. A child who is captured by a caretaker becomes a new caretaker. The song sounds like this:

“I pick, I pick grapes, until the chick comes in, and when the chick comes, they cut my grapes.”

Ide maca oko tebe

Children “mice” sit in a circle, while “pussy” goes around and bends past several of them as if they want to put a handkerchief on their back. If the “mouse” notices the left handkerchief, it runs after the cat to get back into place before it. If he doesn’t arrive, he becomes a pussy. The song sounds like this:

“There is a pussy going around you, be careful not to scratch you, keep a miao, tail, do not be blind;


One kid starts the game by chasing the other kids running around freely. When he catches someone, he stays connected to him, and holding hands, they start chasing after the other children. When they catch the next child, he and the other children are yelling along with them. The game lasts until the last child is free, and it becomes the first link of the next round.


All girls’ favorite props were hula-hop. First the kids usually swirled him around the feet, then the knees, then on the hips, waist, under the mouse, at the end those skilful little girls swirled him around the neck. Girls were usually strangled by how many circles revolve around each part of the body. Let’s say eight laps for each body part, and one that never falls has won.

Okoš bokoš

The little ones put out their hands, clasped their hands into their fists. They choose a child to count, and at the same time hit with their other fist like a small hammer. Before counting, he has to “spit” his fist with which to strike, pronouncing “puja”.

The dial goes like this:

“Eye, hen, fart hen, Baja asks, ‘How much do you need eggs?’

A kid whose friend stopped in, say five. Then it counts to five to which the last number falls, that hand falls out and so everything goes in a circle until one hand remains – that is the winner.

I okolo salata

This song is sung as the children stand in a circle. She sings a kid in a circle and goes around banging her palms bouncing from foot to foot. The song sounds like this:

“And around the salads, and around the salads, and around the salads, and the great choir. I lend a hand to you. You lend a hand to me, and I bow to you and belong to you.”

At the end of the song, one child is selected and then everyone sings, while the two children are held by the elbows at arm’s length, rotating in a circle. When these two children are spinning, a song follows:

“Now you can see now who knows who they like.” They knocked their heads down, now they see that they love each other. ”

Gluvi telefoni

One child starts the game by whispering one word to the other. The word is usually complicated. Each child whispers to the other child as quietly as he can hear and understand. When she reaches her last child, she says the word aloud. Most often the word has nothing to do with the task and then everyone laughs.

Neka bije, neka bije…

This game is usually played by a few toddlers. One child is a record clerk, to whom other children come and give false names (for example, Princess, Tarzan, Fairy, Sandokan …). The ball is put in a marked place, everyone is standing around it, and the scorer says, “Let him beat, let him beat … Tarzan.”

Everyone else runs away until Tarzan puts his hand on the ball and says “stop.” Then everyone has to fit into the spot and who “Tarzan” hits with the ball gets a minus. The kid who collects the three minuses first goes into a small pension until someone else catches the ball. He then enters the game again. With six minuses he goes into big retirement and no longer enters the game.

Između dve vatre

The children are arranged so that there are five to six on one side and the same number of players is on the other team. In the middle between the two groups of children are children trying to catch the ball or avoid it. In the event of a ball being hit, it falls out and so on until everyone is out of the game. Then they change. However, every time someone catches the ball they are called to, they have the right to call someone, or to have one player drop.

Ćorave bake

One player is selected and his eyes are blindfolded so he can see nothing. Then the others gently twist it around their own axis, so that they lose a little sense of orientation in space. While spinning you sing:

“I’m taking my grandmother to the market, to sell it for a penny, go grandma where you know, I don’t need you anymore.”

Players should stand around her, call her name, push her, and when the “grandmother” moves towards other children, they should move away from her. If a “grandmother” catches someone, she should guess who she caught, without removing the blindfold. She has the right to touch your face and body with your hands and words to “pull” a word from you. If she guesses who she caught, that person is her new grandma grandma!

Care, pacape koliko je sati?

One player is selected to be the Emperor and to set the animal steps that the children must emulate in order to reach the goal. The best part of the game is when someone invents some new animal step (say, five ants, seven native, ten horse, nine monkeys …) The winner is the one who first reaches the goal or the emperor.

Ide majka s kolodvora

The children are divided into two groups. They clasp their hands as if they were playing a “glass wheel” and singing the song alternately “Mother goes from the station, dia, dia de. What will the mother of the station do, dia, dia de? She wants one daughter, dia, dia de. What will it be called, dia dia de? Name it … say the name of the child from the opposite group. We don’t give … the name of the child, the opposite group says. As a sign now, the kid from the other group is kidnapped and annexed to the opposite group, so it is played until one group receives all the children of the other group.

Olipijade dečije (Titove) brigade

The scalp children make unusual shapes, and while they sing they sing “Olympics, Olympics, Children’s Brigade Stop. At that moment, whatever shape is made, the other child must slip under or above the scalp without touching the tire. The one who touches the tire with his body must stand in place of the one who attaches the unusual shape. It rolls one by one to prevent the tire from shaking.

Prsti su ti ko u svinje

Girls spread their fingers on both hands, and the other child counted with the song:

“You’re like a pig, put on a man’s name.”

The child says the name of the sympathy she wants to “check” if he loves her. Then the fingers are numbered by the letters of the name (for example Luke) – if Luke loves you, let him snap this finger. The girl tries to snap her finger, so if it cracks – love is guaranteed.

Trule kobile

One of the grossest games played by mostly boys. One team jumps to another whose members are tied together in a “chain” with their heads tucked into each other’s heads between their thighs. Members of one group jump on another team, which must not “kneel”.

Hide and seek

This game is usually played in the evening. One child stands by a tree or wall and counts to 20, while the other children hide during that time. After the countdown, the search for comrades begins, with the passing note “Who did not hide his ass was”. The most widespread game ever since both boys and girls could play at the same time. The one who does not seize in time or the one who rushes in and finds it seizes.

Janjine kupusa i slanine

This game was played by bending one player forward and putting his hands on his knees. The next one skips it like a kid and gets in the same position as the first. The one who skips should yell the name of the game. There were also some combinations, such as “lamb, cabbage and bacon”.

Sandokan ili čepalice

The kids catch on to one kid and watch what’s next to bounce. Then, from that position, the other child needs to shut up, with that other child entitled to move. The winner is who knocks everyone else out.

Partisans and Germans

The children would be divided into two groups, each carrying plastic guns and rifles, which were at every turn. The team of Germans would use their German language, while the Partisans would, as a rule, be inspired by replicas from the war series. As new kids came, this game was named “Cowboys and Indians”
