The only things I did around the house was read books, assemble model planes or chores. Other than that, I was always traipsing the fields and woods with my BB gun, catching turtle or snakes or just doing "stuff" outside.....

And in the winter, non-stop skiing on weekends or snowshoeing after school, checking out all the tracks of the critters around our house......The biggest complaint my mom had was that I was never home ........Life was good.

I was the same way (and was fortunate enough to live around a lot of other kids who were); home video games were making their debut (Atari, Odyssey), but kids still loved to do things outside. If it wasn’t sports it was fishing or hiking in the NJ Meadowlands; at night it was manhunt or run-of-the-mill mischief (”ring-and-run”, pool-hopping, etc.).
