Step 2: Leg Holes
For the 5-Gallon Bucket Swing, we will cut a similar shape.
To start with, lets cut the leg holes. In these photos, I used a black marker to show where to cut to make the directions easier to follow. For your project, you could use a pencil or other light markings, or simply freehand cut using my photos and drawings to work from.
The leg holes are two-part, a pair of "Mouse-Holes" in the front of the bucket, and cutting away part of the bottom of the bucket to match.
Please note that the distance from the back of the bucket to the bottom of the hole is the length of the child's rear-end and thigh. From the knee, the child's leg should hang straight down, with the front of the knee about even with the front of the bucket.
