Introduction: Hidden Rope Swing in Your Room

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Tools, Materials, and Location
i realize this is not an option for a lot of people but for those of us lucky enough to have removable ceiling tiles, well here's what you'l need:
- drill and a bit big enough to put the rope through
Step 2: Drill and Hang
go ahead and drill through the floor support beams about 3 inches from the edge, if your worried about compromising the structural integrity of them don't be, standard home construction calls for many of these holes to be made to run wires around as shown in the second picture
Step 3: The Seat
in the center of the board drill either one big hole that the rope can go through twice or tow small holes that it can pass through once, tie a loop in the rope and put a stick of PVC, re-barb, dowel, or any other strong item should work
Step 4: Done
when your done swinging simply put the swing up on the panel next to it and replace the other pannel
