This primary school nearby banned the following games from being played in the playground:

* Hopscotch

* Conkers

* Skipping

* The elastic game (you take a long loop of elastic, put it round two people's ankles and jump around it; I know, weird.)

* Handstands

Conkers is banned cuz kids could use conkers on strings as weapons; hopscotch is banned cuz it involves throwing a stone; skipping rope and the elastic game apparently are dangerous and could cause kids to fall down; handstands are banned cuz you're upside down and could faint.

As a kid, I played all those games and more and I lived. -.- There's just no sense in banning games; what on earth do they expect the kids to do in playtime, just stand there?
