Games for 6 - 10yrs Hoola Hoop fun
You will need to make a trip to a hardware store in order to get all the bits but it is well worth the effort.
You will need poly irrigation tubing (just ask - the people at the shop will know what it is) for children you need 100psi/3/4inch diametre tubing. 100 feet will make 8 hoops!
You will also need conectors for the tubing, a Ratcheting pvc cutter (or a strong stanley knife at home should do it). A hair dryer and some colourful electrical insulation tape.
The size of the hoop depends on the size of the child. It comes in a big coil, ideally when rested on the floor the hoop should come up to your waist. This will probably equate to about 8 foot in length.
You then need to soften the ends of the tubing with a hair dryer, insert a connector so the length of tubing becomes a hoop. Then put some masking tape over the join.
Once that is done you can wrap around the electrical insulation tape round the hoop to decorate it. The website below goes has some pictures for ideas.
All that is left to do is to get hooping!! It is a great way for kids to stay active!!
