The Hoop Horse – Basketball Net For The Kids

hoop_horse_netting

Our little boy has shown an interest in basketball, which is great, but Fernie doesn’t have a sports store and I couldn’t find a basketball net anywhere, especially one for toddlers. We needed to create one ourselves. It’s a good thing we found basketball netting at Canadian Tire, at least, so that made it a little quicker to put together. Rod found scraps of wood around the house to create a net that is adjustable as they grow and he also found a wheel rim in a trash bin for the net. We thought about putting the net alone on a fence post but we also liked the idea of it being portable. Then we saw the sawhorse. It all came together so well. I’m sure one day this backboard will have a horse head painted on it but that might be a rainy day activity and we haven’t had a rainy day in a while.
