Since the beginning of mankind, games, as multi-purpose activities, have taken place and will continue to function as so in many fields, such as cultural transmission, recognition of traditions, education etc. Traditional games widely adapted by each society are quickly abandoned under the threat of modern technological developments and some are completely forgotton. Some of these traditional games, however, are of particular importance and still preserve their educational values. Particularly the conscious and volitional efforts put into preventing their existence will help the new generations develop contemporary skills which cannot be adapted particularly by electronic games. The aim of this study is to raise suggestions to indicate the educational values and the proper application of some of the child games with exceptional importance among the all.
