As kids we used to put dining chairs together and make a bus.  We could play for ages, taking it in turns to be the driver and conductor.  One Xmas I had a bus conductor's outfit for a present and it included a ticket machine like this:

Used to love rubbing the football in dog poo then crossing it in for headers, did we laugh, one of our lot lost the sight in one eye due to parasitic worms.

Blimey, you're a bundle of fun RR. 

It reminded me of something said on Top Gear many years ago regarding the pranks the three presenters played on each other.

"It's all harmless fun till someone gets hurt, then it becomes hilarious ".

We used to try our best Bruce Lee moves out on our mates in the school playground, good job the courts ruled "death by misadventure" in the subsequent court case or we'd still be locked up.

Winter warmers are something I will never forget! My friends showed me how with a National Dried Milk tin. Light the tinder spin it round and it makes a great hand warmer they said. Tried it and ARGHHH... burnt hands, a perfect imprint of the paint from the tin on my palms and four hysterical 'friends' 

Did you ever put rose hips (itchybacks) down the girls necks? or a nut or bolt in a tobacco tin with some daddy longs, girls loved the smell..

Spirit tapping involved an industrial sized cotton reel and you tied each knocker with two lines at an angle. As a car went through each door got two raps. It was great fun till dad went through on his bike. He stopped to get rid of the cotton he'd gathered and of course as he pulled it rapped some more. All the neighbours could see was this bloke in the middle of the street pulling on cotton and making the knockers rap their doors. They were not best pleased, father even less so. No sense of humour some people.

Did 'one potato' at the top of Nottintone Place. Gather in a circle, both fists in and someone start -one potato two... err weren't you supposed to holding the pram with your baby brother in it? Damn thing took off like an Exocet missile straight for the main road. Some guy bless him hurled himself across the road in front of a bus and stopped it in the nick of time. It was quite a long time before I could sit down.

Dad told me of a game they played as kids.  Put a small log/branch on the ground with another going across at right angles (bit like a see-saw).  Put a stone on the downward end, stamp on the upper one, and then whack the stone with another stick as it came down.  We tried it with my Scouts a few years back but had to stop as there were too many mishaps!  (Elf and safety and all that),

At Scouts we also played glow stick throwing.  Tie a glow stick (crack light/snap light) on a bit of string. Whirr it round (like a big wheel) and then let go - see which went highest.  Had to be careful when it came down though - it bloody hurt if it hit you on the head.
