PrProf. Vasilica Găzdac Şc. Gimnazială „Tiberiu Morariu“, Salva Jud. Bistriţa-Năsăud


Abstract
The motto of this project is „Bridging three generations” namely grandparents, parents and grandchildren. Such bridge will be constructed using the traditional games and toys that oldest living generations used to play in their childhood period. There are numerous projects already realised on games and toys. Therefore, this project will mostly use the theme of traditional games and toys as an instrument for creating a common ground where grandparents and grandchildren can improve the interaction between them. Discovery of traditional games and toys itself will be organised as an opportunity to increase interaction between the oldest living generation (grandparents) and youngest generation (grandchildren) at schools.

Key words: traditional games, generation, innovation, grandparents, grandchildren.
