Well I grew up in Canada so I imagine my childhood was a bit different but we rode bikes, went camping all summer, the beach, we were allowed out until the streetlights came on and I loved cabbage patch kids, merlin, barbie and Cookie Monster, I also loved my little easy bake and record player
In the winter we spent hours at the big sledding hill until we were so cold our mittens were frozen stiff, we went skating at our rink and had every Friday afternoon off school to go skating and had bonfires on ponds. We also had snowball fights and made snow forts.
I had a great childhood and everything we did was unsupervised.. I feel bad for my kids they have no idea what they missed out on
We played hairdresser, where we would spend hours perfecting our topsy turvy hair styles.
Chalk hopscotch on driveway.
I had a netball hoop and would stand there shooting goals until I missed and then start all over again.
We would camp in the backyard. We had a tent and sleeping bags and everything...yet never went real camping.
Eating sour sobs. So gross to think about it now!
We would dress our malamutes up and parade them down the street. Complete with toe nail polish and hair ribbons. They were beautiful boys.
And we had 2 computers so used to play tetris and doom.

This is such a great thread love reading and remembering all the games and activities I did as a kid. Oh why is the internet such a curse and a blessing all in one :P
Handball, played tennis against the wall of a building on our street....on the road Could never do that now, you'd be hit in minutes. (Yes, that is how old I am, when I was young there weren't that many cars around )
Touch football, heaps of reading. My favourite was a bug collecting thing I had -with the magnifying glass in it.
We played ghost train in our car port. 2 of us would ride around in circles the other would pretend to be a ghost and attempt to scare passing bikes.
We used to play along the street with neighbour kids, and climb a neighbours tree and pretend we were hiding out.
Water gun fights, which was me and my friend sitting on the roof while spraying people as they looked for us.
Bee busters, use water guns to spray bees, and run away when they got angry.. *snorts*
Lean up against the fence, and mum would spray us with the hose to make wet silhouettes on the fence.
Do horrible things to ants...
Go to the park without Mum for hours.
Play Polly pockets.
Pretend to be vampires.
