Persian Children’s Games
Soccer (Football): The number one game played by all ages and both genders in Iran is soccer. Children love this contact sport, but men usually play professionally only. In this game, there are two sides of a field and two teams. One team must try and get the ball into the other teams goal without using their hands, only feet. The trick is getting it past the other team and the other team’s goalie.
In the wealthier families, horseback riding, recreational games, theatrical games, and sports games are commonly sought out and has been this way for a while now. Like the rest of the world, with the development of new technology so often and electronics, the way children engage in outside activity is becoming very different from before.
