Throwing horseshoes – in the past, when there were no cars, buses or trains, goods used to be transported by horses which had horseshoes. As every now and then horses needed new shoes, old horseshoes remained. Children used to collect them, stick a stick into the ground and competed who could throw more horseshoes onto the stick.

Rolling the wheel – also carts got destroyed and what was left were old wheels of carts and also bicycles. Children used to roll them with the help of a stick and competed who could roll the wheel farther or faster.

Paving a path with bricks – In the period between the two world wars there was a brickyard at Stara Sava. There were damaged and useless bricks everywhere. Children played with them so that they placed bricks in front of them and thus “paved” the path.
