I love attending a course, conference or workshop where I meet others and learn new tricks. When I was on the International Skogsmulle course in August, I had one of those moments. The sort of moment where you are left wondering why on earth you hadn't thought of that before.
I used to make Tarzan type of swings with the rope attached to the centre of the swing. However do you see the simplicity of this swing? It's far easier to make and use. I leave the rope trailing from one end so that the children can use it to pull each other on the swing.
Now to add to the comfort levels, one child who used this decided it wasn't comfy enough and wrapped his red sit-upon seat (see yesterday's blog post) around the stick and then sat upon it.
The best ideas are definitely shared...
Just a test run
It is always better to use more simple things to make children smiling like the tree swing. Forget the newest Barbie, try to bring your child back to the nature.

Your blog is nice but its too short so please explain your blog more.
Hmmm... good point. This is just a wee blog on this website. My main blog is "I'm a teacher, get me OUTSIDE here!" reativestarlearning.blogspot.co.uk This little blog is simply to put a few short sweet thoughts and ideas on this website for those who cannot access my main blog.
Hope this helps.
Children don't need a lot of stuff to play, it's only a fact of consumerism. As you wrote it needs only a swing to entertain them an afternoon but families are often to lazy to get involved in these things so they just out sons in front of videogames. What a shame.
Some of my most vivid childhood memories are of making over-the-top rope swings and Tarzan-style rope swings from using the very method you suggest :) When I have children I shall pass the fun on to them :)
