Even though outdoor play areas have gotten elaborate, kids still love the most basic piece of equipment—the swing. Oscillating like a pendulum while suspended above ground has given kids hours of enjoyment for generations. All it took was a tree, a rope, and a plank or log slice…..but that has evolved to into some really unique outdoor swing seats.
Found items recycled, whimsical kid inspired designs, hand-carved wood or molded metal when attached to dangling ropes can put a smile on any kids’ face! Look at these and you ‘ll see what I mean about unique…..
|Simple seats but something you can’t find in a store….rounds painted in fun colors kids love.|
Doesn’t really matter if it’s a unique seat or simple plank, kids can enjoy fresh air during any season of the year if you provide them a rope, a tree, and a yard….then they can enjoy the essence of swinging just like Robert Louis Stevenson said in his poem…..
How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!
Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
River and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside–
Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown–
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down!
