My little boy and I played our own version of tiddlywinks recently using buttons. Tiddlywinks is a game in which you try to shoot "winks" into a pot. Our pot was a little can.
You can make a button shoot if you press down on it with another button. It helps to be on the carpet.
It's harder to get a button into the pot than it looks. It takes practice.
Then we tried to see how far we could shoot the buttons. They can really fly!
Tiddlywinks, a game which has a very complicated set of rules, was popular during the Victorian age. Now some people play tiddlywinks on college teams. Others write books about it.
