Create Yourself: Swing Making Kit

by The Oak & Rope Company



  • can be personalised

Great Father's Day Gift! Create your very own engraved oak swing. Great present for making for Sons and Fathers or Grandsons and Grandparents.

For centuries children have made their own swings out of whatever they had to hand, and driftwood planks attached to questionable pieces of string has provided hours of fun and created precious memories all over the world. However, you may not always have all the necessary pieces to hand, so we are here to help...

The most important skill I wish to pass on to my children is the joy of making things… Being able to make things with your own hands changes your outlook on life:1. You feel empowered by a sense of self-sufficiency2. You learn patience when you see how your perseverance pays off.3. You learn to appreciate the things made by other people when you see what goes into making something from scratch. This in turn teaches you respect for others.4. You can make useful and beautiful things you otherwise might not be able to afford.5. You see the possibilities of making improvements in the world around you.6. You learn to take pride in what you do.

There are probably dozens of additional benefits in learning how to make things, that I can’t think of at the moment, and please feel free to add them here.

We live by the motto #wemakethethingswewishexisted and have now made a kit that can help your children take the first step in making something they are truly proud of. What a great way to start the Summer holidays… and who knows what they will make next!
