Thread Name: Child's Game: Elastics
Subject: RE: Child's Game: Elastics
this is amazing. I used to play elastics growing up in Brisbane, Australia. I played it in the mid-80s at primary school. I can remember doing

England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales
Inside, Outside, Inside, Out.

I seem to remember having bizarre rules for being allowed to put on of the elastics on your shoulder, and trying to jump it for chest height, but looking back, I'm not sure how we ever did that.

Can't believe people are still playing - this is fantastic. My husband (who is American) had never heard of it, and thought I was making it up.
