    Oh yes, forgot about the firecrackers. My dad and uncles used to do those beer bottle launcher things in the backyard!

    I also forgot " nick knocking ". This was probably the main game we played with our cousins and neighborhood kids, especially at night during family BBQ's/parties. Ahhhh *sigh*. The days before we discovered alcohol, lmao..

    Up the back of us was a very small farm (in the middle of Brisbane which now I think about it was odd). Anyway, my brother and I used to go there, sneak through the barb wire fence, sprint across the paddock to outrun the bull that would charge at us, through a second barb wire fence to get to a creek.

    Default How did we survive?! *Fluff*

    My mum was super protective of me as a kid (which is a surprise as I was her 4th!) so the most dangerous thing was probably licking the beaters after making a cake, which contained raw egg! Haha.

    - with the rest of the kids in our street we made a 'skate ramp', it was just a steep slope with a drop off at the end that was about a metre high. We used this for weeks with our bikes until one of the neighbourhood boys scraped the vast majority of the skin on his face off and a bone actually penetrated his skin in his leg

    - we would jump from our (high) back fence into our swimming pool and when our parents weren't around we would jump from our roof.

    - we would play rough and tumble in the pool (I'm one of 4 kids born within 5.5yrs) and hold our siblings under water waaayyyy longer than would be acceptable/safe.

    - we would run and jump on to inflatables and foamies in the pool and try to skid on the surface of the water to the other side. I would never let my kids do this! The thought of them falling back and whacking their head on the side of the pool makes me shudder.

    Oh yeah, firecrackers!! We lived in NZ where they were legal all year round and we used to buy them from the corner store on the way home from school (I was 6, brother was 8!) and we'd go home set them off all afternoon... 😮😵

    It was an amazing hedge - about 4 feet thick and 8 feet high and went around the whole property. We had tunnels burrowed out all the way through it with cubbies and trap doors and hidey holes. Was so much fun!

    -Jumping off the water tank onto the tramp.
    -Bulding rafts to use in the swamp and mangroves.
    -Digging tunnels in sandunes :-O
    -Riding horses an hour away to the beach and swimming with no adult supervision.
    -Guy Fawkes
    -Shooting at targets with an air rifle
    -Roaming the streets and playing until the street lights came on.
    -Seeing who could climb to the top of the tree and building huts as high as we could.
    -Riding motorbikes for hours on end and only coming back for food.
    -Making tunnels through the stacked hay in the barn.

    Man, I loved my childhood!
