Swedish children games long time ago

I found an old book with more images by illustrator Gunhild Facks who I wrote about earlier, see ABC. These images of children playing different games where published in the school book “Första läseboken” from 1905, in Sweden. I think they are lovely, both lively and decorative.

Some of these games are still popular, other have disappeared long time ago.

hoppa-tåg
mala-salt
rymmare-och-fasttagare
rulla-tunnband
leka-soldat
kasta-krans
sista-paret-ut

I very much like this type of images with a frame that the motive can reach out of, with almost arts and crafts style decorations and much joy and life. Both boy and girls are active and do all kinds of sports!
