recycled tree swing
Last summer, we made a trade with a friend. A groovy shirt for a handmade wood swing to hang in the big maple tree in our front yard. It was something I had wanted for a while. Little f loves it and swings on it daily. He has now taken to doing tricks on it, standing up, moving to one rope, hanging off the back and more. Luckily, he has his father's agility!
It is made from an old piece of barnwood, shaped to be large enough for an adult and fairly thick. The rope is still rigged in there, until we get up into the tree to fasten in properly. Then we can hook up the bottom and tie it properly. But it works for now and we love it!
