    Apart from riding your bike & playing with yourself. (Just to save Mr Predictable saying it)
    Went for a walk this morning & I still can’t help myself chucking Sycamore seeds in the air & watching them helicopter down. I’m 66 ffs! 😂
    Any more?

    What do you still do that you did as a kid?

    Walk behind cars.

    It was drummed into me by my gran that after getting out of a car I should always walk behind it rather than in front, the logic being that my grandad might accidentally mow me down with a sudden burst of acceleration from his Austin Allegro should I walk in front of it. I still do it habitually to this day despite almost always being the driver.

    If it gets properly cold in winter I like walking up to the quarry and lobbing massive stones in the frozen puddles at the bottom. Actually managed it in Jan ’21 I think.

    In the bath… though nowadays it’s after I wash my face.

    Lego.
    Change Playmobil setups to make little ridiculous scenarios to annoy/amuse my little sister kids when they come back into the room.

    When I was a kid my grandad got me in to the Goons and reading Edward Lear,since then I have never stopped doing silly voices and bad impressions of regional accents,much to my families embarrassment 😆 🤣

    making leaves go bang

    I feel this is something I need to know about.

    Oh and that reminds me, whistling with acorn cups. Really loud!

    Throw helicopters in the air.
    Collect conkers & then wonder what to do with them when I get home.
    Feet off the pedals through deep puddles.
    Fail to do more than a 3-pedal wheelie.

    I should probably add “Arguing with my mother” to the list.

    One just kicked off about train strikes and how “they are all on 50k while ordinary people can’t get to work and the train companies aren’t making profits to share”…

    I should stop talking to her about this sort of stuff. It just makes me angry.

    making leaves go bang

    Take fresh green leaf (beech in spring work well). One hand form a circle between thumb and first finger 👌. Lay the ‘circle’ horizontal. Lay leaf on circle, no gaps around.
    Other hand, form a cup of sorts. Slam down cupped hand on leaf, forcing air through the leaf and the circle.

    I still eat pick-n-mix until I feel sick and then keep going until there’s none left.

    Skim stones if near a smooth body of water.  Though being escorted out of the public baths was a bit OTT if you ask me.

    I collect conkers. I also weight them and calculate statistics. See if you can find a 40 gram conker this year.

    Use a piece of grass as a reed to make a noise blowing air over it (I’m rubbish at whistling).

    Well done Tired,I was looking at my conker collection in the shed today 😀
    They were meant for a charity conker match,but as the event never happened,I am now wondering if they have dried out too much and lost their weapons potential 😉

    @matt_outandabout leaf popping is a tradition in our family. Lime trees in spring produce the best shaped leaves for loud pops.

    sometimes i go “beast mode” when going up the stairs by using my arms as wells as my legs for extra speed, like a silverback running to confront a young challenger

    My kids have taken the place of my siblings, but yes.

    Use a piece of grass as a reed to make a noise blowing air over it (I’m rubbish at whistling).

    I’ve taught the kids to do this as well. Just before we all start lobbing pine cones at each other, shouting ‘BOMB!’
