Here’s a way to provide some cheap entertainment to a child! The folks over at EcoProjecteer have developed what they call the “bucket swing” using a cut-up 5 gallon bucket.
Most 5 gallon buckets are made with very heavy duty plastic, but I would still consider reinforcing the eye holes the ropes are threaded through. I have had buckets split on me, and I would hate for that to happen to one of these swings.
