WE’RE A SWINGIN’ GROUP

I made a new toy this week. I don’t know who has more fun with my toys… The kids playing on them or me watching them.

Take an ordinary tire…

Love it! My girls would go crazy over one of these... might have to drag one of the tyres I made hubs keep from my car's last tyre change out of the shed and give this a burl!

How has the spray paint held up? It is really cute but I was afraid the paint would wear off quickly and onto the kids clothes!

I also have paint worries. How does the paint hold up to the elements?

Aussie readers... remember to always paint the inside of the tyre white to prevent red back spiders.

Yellow jackets love to build in old tires. Use spray foam inside the tire and sand around the edges easily to avoid them

Life is like a battle, if you don't know how to defend yourself then you'll end up being a loser. So, better take any challenges as your stepping stone to become a better person. Have fun, explore and make a lot of memories.
