Laneway Kid's Games

Featured on the Laneway behind 144 Chapel St, St Kilda

Street Artist Heesco, well known for his silo works in regional Victoria and local artists Nidhal Altaie, Robert Scholten and Anahita Diba will paint the entire laneway floor between Rosamond Street and Nightingale Street, St Kilda with children’s street games played around the world. Occupying children during Melbourne’s many lockdowns is the inspiration for this work.

Heesco designed the laneway street art featuring the following games:

And we made up our very own. The river encircling the game, River Adventure, contains stones children can jump from one to the other, possibly as they chase each other.

Click on each game to explore how it is played and what it is called throughout the world. Most importantly have fun playing these games.
