Mastery children’s swing do it yourself


What to do baby swing do it yourself? Construct children’s swing from improvised materials. The easiest option of the swing is a model on a tree branch. We are building children’s swing balancing

If you have a baby and you want to diversify it leisure, then try to make children’s pendant swings. For children, and even adults, it is guaranteed to bring a sea of ​​pleasure. All you need in this matter – a little loose place in the country or in the courtyard, the desire to make such fun, a simple tool and the material itself.


Mastery children's swing do it yourselfThe strongest structures, of course, metal, but since each dad has access to the welding machine, you can make children’s street swings from wood. Therefore, when choosing a material, guided first of all with your capabilities. From these same considerations, choose what to take for supports – metal pipes or wooden bars.

It is from the material that it depends, how much time will serve you and the family built by your own children’s swings. If it is a tree, then it should be dry. It is worth choosing wood coniferous rocks, as it is stronger. And of course it is worth heating to the means from rotting and insects.

When building a swing with your own hands, you should also consider for children, what age is the construction. If for small, then you can put single pillars. And if there are older children or adults to swing, then the supports are made in the form of a triangle of two pillars and a connecting porchosk-crossbar between them. The buried part of the beams is deceived by hot tar and rest over the rubberoid.


So, it was determined with the material, now we proceed to the construction of the design itself:

  • Processing pillars. At the ends of the pillars that will be our top, cut out the grooves in which the pole crown will be inserted. Reception is made strictly under the size of the crossbar, whether it is a pipe or log. Poles for the support need to take at least half the meter longer than the height that was originally planned for swing. At these half-meter, the poles will be buried to the ground;
  • Drop the pillars for pillars. If the support is single, then the fifth will be two if the triangle is four. Before the post put in the hole, first we fall asleep in her crushed stone or broken brick and thoroughly trambam. The pillars supplied, for the greater fortress, are filled with concrete on top;
  • We make crossbars. If you use a log as a crossbar, then you first need to strengthen the hooks for which the rope will hang around. Fastening under the rope in this case it is better to make through so that they pass through the entire diameter of the crossbar. After all, in the process of use, the hooker will put down the force, multiplied by fluctuations, and in response they will try «jump out» From the crossbar. To avoid this, fasten the hook on the other side of the crossbar. Instead of hooks, you can also use special carbines capable of withstanding total weight up to 300-500 kilograms. If you do baby swing from metal, instead of rope you can use a metal rod. But it is impossible to use the cable, since in the case of a break even one thread, it can be very effortful;
  • Choose the seat. It should not be too massive. Everyone knows that little children sometimes rock on the swings of their dolls and plush bears. If the seat is heavy, or God forbid, with metal corners, then such games may be injured by the baby. Everything is suitable for the seat, a few knocked wooden boards, a piece of durable plastic, a skateboard board, a car tire, a seat from the old armchair. Extensive field for creative fantasy.
