Playing ‘Fly’

Playing the game fly on the grass

Fly was a game played in the playground using sticks found on the ground and is a great example of ‘making do’.  ‘Fly’ was the leader who ran through sticks laid out like the rungs of a ladder, making a long leap at the end. A stick was moved to the landing spot, creating ever increasing gaps. ‘Fly’ and the other children got out when they touched a stick or couldn’t make the distances.
