DIY monkey bars

Three summers ago, we added a slide to our back deck. Two summers ago, we built a wooden teeter totter. Last summer, we bought a secondhand play structure and the kids enjoyed the novelty of having their own swings.

But every time we went to a park or a school playground, they were completely obsessed with something we didn’t have: monkey bars.

I knew we needed to build our own, but it seemed . . . difficult. Where would we get the bars? How would we make sure they didn’t tip over? The local stores only seemed to sell swings, slides and climbing rope systems — no monkey bars to be found.

I was at the point when I thought it would be an impossible DIY when I saw a monkey bar kit on Pinterest — just six bars and a little bag of screws — for less than $40 CDN with free shipping on I ordered it when I was half-asleep one morning and almost forgot about it until they arrived three weeks later.

I wasn’t expecting the set to come with instructions — I just figured my handy husband would rig something up — but it did, and he followed them to a tee. (Not my style, but it works for him.)

Pin this idea for later!

My brother is about to be sentenced to 7-8 year in prison for a rape he did not commit, the target is a known compulsive liar that does not appreciate the severity of the charges she is lying about. The victim, my brother submitted to a test and passed. The target refused to take a rape test kit, because she was lying. Still as trial progresses it does not look good in his case. This Young man's life is about to be ruined. I am searching for some very skilled people who maybe able to access information that may clear his name or help his case. Please contact

I totally wanted an ethical hacker to help me spy on my husband and served as a personal investigator. Literally, I met him on a dating site and there used to be trust but now, he locks out his WhatsApp, PC and phone. So, there are trust issues. So, I wanted help to bypass his security and test his potency on trust. I got an hacker who helped me bypass his phone and got it cloned. I get access to activities like Facebook, Email, WhatsApp, calls, Skype and others. I'm sure someone out there is looking for how to solve his relationship problems, just contact

Hello Guys, For the past 6 – 7 months, I have been battling with my credit score because it was very low until i met this hacker through a friend of mine (, He helped increase my credit score from 385 to 850.
I was really surprised that he helped me do it in less than 72 hours hours, even though I doubted him at first because he told me to pay the service fee before any action can take place.
after i paid $850 , he got my report and in less than 64 hours my credit score increased.
I am absolutely sure he is not a scam. he is very trust worthy.
contact; , Line Chat ID: tedwil if you need help in increasing your score fast.

I was newly married and my husband and I intended on getting a house but our credit scores were low and I also had a few bank debts. I spoke to a friend about it who happens to be a tech guy and he introduced me to a hacker (blackbutcher). I contacted blackbutcher and he helped my husband and I boost our credit scores and he also helped me clear my bank debts. This hacker is a genius and comes highly recommended by a lot of people. He's affordable and genuine unlike a lot of fakes I saw on the internet. Contact him on his mail

I honestly can't believe what just happened.....A hacker just gave me full access to my children's phone calls, text messages and their social media accounts which means i can now monitor their daily activities and also be able to know when they are being misled by anyone. I am so happy about this because my kids mean the world to me and ever since the death of their mother, i have made a promise to always be there for them as a father and also as a mother...You can contact the brain behind the hack at for any problems you have that relates to hacking.
