I need to boast – I was FANTASTIC at fiddlesticks. Does that still exist?

“TWISTER” is a great game, and definitely not a “bored” one.

Always enjoyed a good game of “LUDO” with my son when he was little.

My Dad taught me chess and later on backgammon which we now play with our kids and grandkids.

My Dad made a lovely big board of Snakes and ladders and we also played Monopoly and I also did some Science type things with Dad when very young.
Mum and I used to also make flowers and fruit into broaches from bread see below, I still have those.

Made out of bread on a flour board… that is thinking out of the square 🙂
You will have to write up a recipe 🙂

What a memory that bought back planB…I made those too, but when I tried to teach my grandies how to do it ,I must have left something out for when I left them overnight. by morning the cochroaches had had a good feed….
I also made funny little apple people, with dried apples..I still have some that I made but unfortunately I dont know how to post them on here…
But the game I remember most was a game similar to pictionary ..It was fine until my little brother had the word cockatoo…..It actually reduced us to tears…

Thank you for your remarks.
As far as I can remember it was just made out of VERY fresh bought bread from the baker molded into the shapes dried and then painted and glossed with a gloss finish paint, then Mum used to stick it onto a backing to be able to be worn as a broach.
These were made in about 1941
