Street Games We used To Play

I am well past my prime but some of these games may still be played perhaps if one lives on a cul de sac. The street or sidewalk might be too dangerous these days.
One foot off the gutter, ( the curbstone!!!) walking on stilts, kick the can, jump rope, roller skate, walking on homemade stilts, and jacks. I wonder how many women remember the girls game of O'Leary or was that just for Irish kids who lived in the Sunset.
