Ashley Learns How to Make a Hoola-Hoop

Have you ever made your own custom hoola-hoop?

Ashley went to a class where she learned how to make her very own hoola-hoop, custom-made just for her height.

Made from black plastic garden tubing, first they measured the size that would be best for her. Then they used tubing connectors to connect the ends together.

They heated up the tubing with a hair dryer to make the plastic shrink tightly around the connectors.

Once the hoop itself was complete, Ashley got to decorate her hoop with colorful electrical tape, wrapping it around and around and around.

After making her custom hoola-hoop, she even got a lesson on how to use it!

What a great idea that was tons of fun!!!
