Upper-class children in 1900 spent their evenings together playing games.Snakes and ladders was already a popular board game;Monopoly was invented in 1903 and a version of the game "Life" had just been invented.Many outdoor games,such as baseball,had companion board games for indoor use.Chess and checkers were popular with both young and old players.Poorer families would have had fewer resources,but cheap paper versions of board games were available from roadside market stalls.Jigsaw puzzles were often made from old maps stuck to cardboard.Card games and guessing games were popular.Children would play simple games such as "Old Maid" and "Snap.” A precursor to "20 Questions" was "What Am I Thinking Of" and tag,"Hide and Seek,"charades and "Musical Chairs"were active games for indoor play.With no television or radio,children were adept at making up their own parlor games and activities.- Kit: “Watermelon by Belladone Digitals”
