Games also enable children to develop physically, psychologically and socially while entertaining them. Through games, children interact with their environment. This interaction facilitates communication skills, cooperation and cultural transfer in children. The most important games in cultural transfer are traditional children’s games. This is because these games, by their nature, carry the traces of the past within. Through traditional games, cultural elements are transferred from generation to generation and they facilitate intergenerational sharing.
