World Games

Around the world, traditional games help children learn about the rules and values of their culture. They also provide a fun form of exercise whilst sharpening motor skills and developing hand-eye coordination, spatial awareness, balance and social skills. The games we’ve gathered show children that how we play is very similar, regardless of where we live.

Through these games we invite children to play and pray as God’s family. Included with each game is a prayer for the relevant continent. You may wish to pray the corresponding Mission Rosary decade together.
