Bicycle Tube Bouncy Seat

Should take about 10-15 minutes at the most. (If you have all the materials.) My kid really liked this.

Step 1: Materials

First, get two stretchy bicycle tubes. You also need: scissors, and something to hang it from. (Monkey bars are the best-we used a wood ladder.)

Step 2: Cut!

Here is where you will use your scissors. First cut off the valves and discard.

Step 3: Tie!

Here's where the monkey bars come in. Here you have to tie a sturdy knot that will hold about 90 lbs if stretched.

Step 4: Enjoy!

    So cool! I'm sure more tubes could hold more weight. I love your ladder monkey bars.

    If anyone falls out,(this has happened to me before) they will probably only fall halfway out, meaning only one will break.
