Indulge me for a minute and take a trip down memory lane to the playground of your childhood years. What was your favorite thing to play on? The slide? The swings? How about the see-saw? My favorite was a tie between the swings and the see-saw. There was something about the rush of gravity and tickle it created in my stomach that made these two activities irresistible to my younger self, and if they made adult-sized playgrounds, I’d still be all over those.
One of my fondest childhood memories is going on the see-saw with my dad when I was really little. My dad was careful enough not to let the weight difference cause any accidents, but when he put his weight down, I felt like I was flying. It might not sound like much, but it’s a memory I’ll cherish forever.
In an effort to give his own kids a fun see-saw memory, Rob Palmer from Better Homes and Gardens decided to make a DIY see-saw for them to enjoy. It’s super easy to make, and best of all, it costs less than $50! The rocking base is made from a rubber tire cut in half, and, by the looks of it, his kids have given it the official seal of approval!
