Knock-down-brick, a hide-and-seek game.
I sold horse dung to people, if they didnt want my product i would post it through the letter box for FREE!
i remember playing kiss catch you had to hide and my memory was hiding from the boys you did not like and trying to get caught by the ones you did, these days i run from them all
tap latch is what we use to play and scilly around the streets.
We were naughty very naughty back in the 60s. I would blow up dog muck with fireworks and watch it fly through the air hitting folk. Its amazing what fun we would get out of that!
Fist fighting for money. Dad would put me up for fighting i would knock another kid out and get £3 for it.
Cow Pat throwing!
I REMEMBER WHEN IT WAS ICY MAKING A SLIDE AND DOING THE MUCKY DADDY
Knock a door run
Games we played:- SKILLY, KICK CAN, I DRAW A SNAKE UPON YOUR BACK.... JACKS, HOP SKOTCH (of course) What RAYTBEN called Piggy Back we called BRITISH BULLDOG, STATUES, MARBLES, HIDE and SEEK, Who remembers shouting "TRAILIN TRAILIN POM POM POM"? TOP and WHIP The girls used to chalk patterns on the top of the top.
We called it Piggy Back. One side would crouch against a wall head under the one in front's legs and the opposing side would run and jump on the other side's back and try to collapse them.
we used to play rounders in the street where i lived. the road had natural markings for the bases where you had to run around. on a good day, in the summer, all the neighbours used to stand at their front doors with cups of teas, and watch us, some even joined in and ran for the ball when it went astray. Then of course there were the naughty games like knocking on doors and running away! so funny when you are young, but i would kill anyone caught doing that to my door these days!!!!!!!
Playing football in the street using an old tin can as a football until young Mockie got mowed down by a motor car and never walked again. I can still remember his screams as if it were yesterday.
Skipping. If you didnt have two people to hold the rope at either end,then tie it to a lamp post.What was the songs sang to it? Hopscotch. No chalk, then spit on a peice of brick and write with that. Stilts, use two baked bean cans with string on. Two balls played on gable ends, poor residents. Hand stands, the girls didn't seem to care who saw their next weeks washing. Hoola hoops, spining it in such a way as it came wizzing back and you had to jump over it.
