A friend of mine pointed out this image of one of Brugel's paintings:

It would make a neat little article for someone to try to figure out
what sorts of games are being shown. For example: rolling a hoop using
a stick (bottom). Two people sitting on a barrel. Whip-tops (upper
center under the porch). Leap-frog (center). Blind-man's bluff. There
are a bunch of more complicated physical games, too. Adults are shown
doing quite a few of them. Etc.
