Here's a rope tree swing with a twist . . . or a flip trick! You (and your kids) will be able to pull some sweet aerials with this rope swing. (Yes, I had to Google "skateboarding tricks" on Wikipedia to make sure that I used the correct "street talk" in writing this post.)
I'm going to state the obvious . . . but those of you who are like me and need a little step by step, I'm here for you:
1- Find an old skateboard deck
2- Drill a hole through the middle with a a 3/4 inch or a 1 inch paddle bit. (My husband did this, he won't let me operate the drill for the safety of our family)
3- Get a sturdy rope
4- Find a sturdy tree
5- Google some skateboard tricks
6- Attempt a Method Air Grab, a Rock and Roll, or a Stalefish with a Goofy Grab on your Toe Edge. Boom.
While you're at it, play "Pumped Up Kicks" while you swing. It will make you happy.
