Traditional Games


If you are looking to add a classic touch to your play areas, our collection of traditional games has a variety of perfect options to choose from. 


Our Research


Before the modern playground equipment we have nowadays was invented, children still used to play. In fact, children used to play outdoors often. Creative Play’s savvy designers and developers of playground equipment, have done their research and discovered several, very interesting games played outside by children, before modern playground equipment came along. 


Some fantastic traditional games that kept children active and engaged previously include:


  • Jack, Jack, Show the Light 
  • Fox and the Hounds
  • Blindfolded Wheelbarrow Races
  • Hoops and Sticks


We also discovered children used to hand-make hula hoops and skipping ropes, and would use chalk to draw hopscotch patterns on the ground. Most of these traditional games allowed active play outdoors. 


When technology became popular, it allowed endless games to be played virtually, indoors, on mobile devices. There’s also entertainment provided by TV and computers, which pushes children to spend a lot of time on passive activities. 


Playing or being entertained indoors, prevented active play and outdoor play. This led to problems including cognitive development issues and lifestyle conditions that affect people of all ages.


Our experts at Creative Play have devised ways to use the technology to enhance outdoor play, by bringing traditional games back to life. These, we incorporate into the enormous playground development industry. By doing so, we help attract children to engage in interesting traditional games and other outdoor games.
