Plays are important components within the framework of cultural sphere for both children and adults. A child accepts the life just like a mirror, and learns everything around him by imitation since he is born. He integrates into the life by turning the real life into a play. That is to say, all incidents such as going to the hospital and being vaccinated or going to the supermarket, playground etc., and attitudes, behaviors he shows in the atmosphere which he is in are animated in his small world as a game again and again. Plays -not unique to human- can be observed among animals. They have constant and unchanging rules. Plays, which are inseparable parts of society and culture, and constitute an important part of oral culture, appear similarly in the societies of the same cultural sphere. Children representing the acquisitions and the world in which they live in plays reflect the past, the present and the culture into the plays.
