Do the kids want a swing at home? You don’t have to buy a swing set, just a used skateboard!

DIY Skateboard Swing Main Image

Who says you need to spend a fortune to provide the little ones with fun outdoor play equipment? This DIY skateboard swing is a great alternative which is just as fun (maybe even more).

Skateboards are sure cheaper than a swing set, and you can get one at an even lower price if you try the thrift store! And while you’re there, you might as well look for a broom stick or any wooden rod that you can use for this project.

This DIY project only takes around 20 minutes to complete. Just perfect for kids who can’t wait to have their very own swing!
