Traditional Childhood Games Dying Out

Research has found the outdoor games we used to play as children like hopscotch, skipping and marbles are dying out.

It's thought 230,000 parents in Hampshire and Dorset are playing with their children for less than two hours a week.

It's mainly being blamed on TVs and computer games.

New research shows Hopscotch and Musical Chairs are known by less than half of children and under a quarter know about Kiss Chase, Conkers and What's the Time Mr Wolf.

We've found out an estimated 230 thousand parents across Hampshire (158k) and Dorset (73k) are playing with their kids for less than two hours a week.

The people behind the Bring Back Rough and Tumble Play report say it's leaving kids relying on computer games and TV's to keep them entertained.
