Summer is almost on, and we all spend time outdoors – having meals, reading, talking, sunbathing and swimming. Our kids are playing somewhere around, and of course they are having much fun. They can have even more fun if your outdoor space is kid-friendly, and a swing is the easiest way to make it like that. I’ve got some cute swing ideas that will excite your children, have a look at them and get inspired!
A usual swing is a super easy piece to make, all you need is a wooden plank with rope or chain – hang it to a tree or to some arch or in the porch, and voila! It can be doubled if needed, or even tripled if you have several small kids. You can make one or several swings of old chairs, just cut off the legs and suspend the chair where you need. If you have a small baby, a good idea is to make a fabric swing with a pillow to make sitting comfier or at least to add a front piece to a wooden one to make it safer.
Make a swing of a wooden slice and some thick rope, it may be used standing. There are eye-catchy platform and spiderweb swings that can accommodate several children, which is great if you have more than one. You can also find or make face to face swings for more communication or simple tire ones.
