Crafty on a sunny afternoon……

Today we were fortunate enough to be invited to make homemade jump ropes. What a very cool experience, one that we spent hours watching others do, and then finally had a chance to make one ourselves!

The “rope maker” as technically referred to was made many years ago based on a concept that was seen in a 1960’s Boy Scout manual. It is a bit of physics, patience, and excitement all wrapped up in one fun craft!

I think I would have ropes all over the house if I had one of these in my own home……so much fun!

SO many color possibilities!!
