Skateboard Swing

27 October 2014 | By

skateswingHere’s a fun DIY project that’ll earn you major cool points with your kids–turn an old skateboard into a backyard tree swing! And it’s super easy, too!

Here’s what you’ll need:

-old skateboard
-two pieces of rope (at least 20 feet in length)

So this is really simple. First, choose which tree you’re going to hang the swing from–and make sure it has very sturdy branches. Next, take your skateboard and thread each piece of rope through the holes above the wheels. Tie the ropes to the thickest, most sturdy-looking branch on your chosen tree.

And voilà!
