Engaging in games from other countries opens children’s eyes to other cultures. Most children’s playground games have a similar fundamental function that children everywhere can relate to. At the same time, the specific rules and characters of the game always tell a tale of local cultures and customs. By playing a game from a different cultural setting, a child will feel closer to his or her peers in other parts of the world. In general, good playground activities also develop a sense of community and strengthens solidarity. Games also promote group activities and treasure local traditions of playing.
