The Nanaimo Community Home Learners group usually does a craft before the weekly gym time. This week there was also a meeting in place for the parents. It was so great to meet more parents and the gym/playground was filled with kids that don’t always come on a regular basis. One of the parents put together the making of Hula Hoops this week. This craft was really fun! I thought I’d share how to do it:
There were a number of samples to try to find the right size for each hula hoop maker. Once we picked the size we liked the hose was cut to match. Next we fit a small corrugated connector in one end of the tube. This took some muscle to twist in and using the hairdryer to heat and expand the hose helped. Lily and Leif both put beads in her hose before I fit the second side of the hose onto the connector.
All that needed to be done then was to decorate! There were so many different colour combinations used. Lily opted for the simple pink hockey tape and red electrical tape.
