Ancient Rome

Roman children played with balls and kites and made hoops with pieces of metal on them so that when they rolled they chimed like bells.  Mostly though, boys played war type games.  They practiced with wooden swords and played conquer Troy.  Children would also make small figures and play with them.  Girls played with dolls.  Poorer children made rag dolls while the richer children had dolls of clay or wax some even had joints to bend and pose. They loved marbles. There are mosaics and paintings that show the children of ancient Rome playing all kinds of games. Homer describes kids riding on hobby horses, building play houses, and even making little carts and hitching up live mice to pull them.  Both kids and adults played an early form of tic-tac-toe during the Roman Empire. They played an early form of golf called paganica, by hitting a stuffed leather ball with a bent stick. Young and old, the ancient Romans loved challenges, competitions, and games of chance.
