Childhood Backyard Games S19


Introduction: For our final Russian 13 projected, we collected folklore about childhood backyard games. We chose this because we all had such fond memories from our own childhood’s about the games we used to play. We also were very interested in childhood folklore as a whole, since it’s function is so playful.
