Anyone for a Wii game; YOUTH.

TRADITIONAL pastimes such as playing conkers, keeping a diary and wearing Sunday best clothes are dying out.

The younger generation prefer Wii, online networking and slobbing about in leisurewear, a survey revealed.

The study into our changing habits showed just six per cent of under-25s have ever dressed up on a Sunday.

Games such as hopscotch, skipping, hide and seek and conkers have been played by just 13 per cent of under-25s.

And only 15 per cent of young people keep a diary or write letters to friends.
