Old-Fashioned Metal Jacks
Sometimes you just can't beat the classics! I can't remember the last time I saw anyone playing with jacks, but I do remember them fondly and I think younger kids would still find them entertaining. RetroPlanet.com sells the old-fashioned metal jacks, which I think are much more satisfying to play with than plastic ones. This package here comes with 10 metal jacks, a rubber ball, a cloth pouch, and rules for different variations of the game. They recommend it for ages six and up.
You know how supporters of video games talk about the great hand-eye coordination benefits? Well, this is the original hand-eye coordination game!
