Big Fun for Little Dough!

Anybody remember sock puppets? How about bingo, go fish, or jump-rope? These pastimes came to be in a time when money was scarce for many families. And they’re seeing a revival in this tough economy.

The Monroe Library currently has a display of books & movies on nostalgic toys & games like these. Remember toy trains on Christmas morning? Or when was the last time you flew a kite? Lots of ideas for lots of summer fun. BIG fun. For little dough.

Try a few of these:
The Kids Summer Games Book

Let’s Play: Traditional Games of Childhood

Timeless Toys: Classic Toys and the Playmakers Who Created Them

The Games We Played: the Golden Age of Board and Table Games

And, as we say in the library world: Check it out!
