Making Hula Hoops

Garden reticulation pipe

Cut to size

Correct sized joiner
A single marble popped inside to maintain momentum
(for those of us not too experienced at the twirling of a plastic hoop around
our hips ~ this step helps keep the hoop 'Up'!)

Close both ends of the hoop around the join
Cover the entire hoop with electrical tape.
So 1. it's no longer black!
and 2. the join is covered
Add some Bling!
Little fingers may able to help with this

Ready to take for a spin!

  8. I would say it took less than an hour to create a couple of hula hoops, with my little guys helping. So I agree, a Hula Hoop making party would work well!

  9. Thanks for popping over Sunshine Mama! I spoke to several talented Mamas before we 'tried this at home'. One of them was a gymnast who gave me the marble trick. It works well for me (I need it too!)
