Toys R Us!

Chat club this week was all about childhood toys and games. Wartime meant few bought toys but Derek remembered his father making a penny whistle. Renee remembered a favourite doll whose head fell off but luckily Dad was on hand to fix it and father Christmas brought Mary a baby doll with eyes that opened and closed. 

We tried to have a game of marbles but they wouldn't stay on the table very well.

'Salt, mustard, vinegar, pepper,etc' and 'All in together girls, never mind the weather girls' were 2 skipping rhymes that Renee and Mary remembered. Donna did the skipping but unfortunately there's no photo!

Next week we're going to string some conkers and have a game .
