Skellies
Date: January 20 2014

In Queens, we called it "Skelly." Because the best caps were heavy, we melted down crayons and poured the liquid into the middle of the cap. Sometimes, we added a penny, too, and boy could that bottle cap knock away any contenders. But instead of flicking our caps with our thumbs, we sent the caps forward with our first or second fingers by "shooting" them from our thumbs. Only problem was ... a heavy cap banged our fingernails!

Spud
Date: January 20 2014

Everyone gets a number. As the player who is It throws a rubber ball in the air and calls out someone's number. The person called has to go grab the ball while everyone else runs as far as they can. and calls out one player's number. Whent he called perosn grabs the ball, she yells SPUD, whereupon everyone has to freeze. The ball holder can take two giant steps toward any person, and then try to hit them with the ball. The  person can move his body to avoid the ball but not his feet. If he is hit, he earns an "S," if the thrower misses, she gets an "S." Whoever gets the letter throws the ball in the next round. If you earn "S-P-U-D," you are out. Last person still in wins.
