We are passing on something that children will remember forever in the lives. In today's modern age, Patriotism is a growing concern in our nation today. One of the ways to teach children patriotism is to have them be in an informative play or program. The best way is through Play. Play is the original way of learning things. It also makes the lessons memorable.
Teach children to play the Filipino Games. One day, they will play in the leagues of society, and they will play as team called Filipinos.
The Traditional Filipino Games are the games of our heritage ("Laro ng Lahi" in Filipino). Most of the games are popular street games played by neighborhood children growing up together. It is passed on from one generation to another. As such, it is called "traditional" Filipino games.
The traditional Filipino games promotes the Filipino spirit in a fun way. By and large, it is part of the Filipino culture. It is a cultural treasure that every Filipino should cherish, and continue to pass on the new generation, and to their children's children.
Filipinos can be proud to have their very own games. The Filipino games are as competitive as international games played in the Olympic arena.
