My nephew is turning nine and just joined the cub scouts. He loves playing outdoors. I made him a gathered end hammock last year, but he lost it somewhere.
So, for this birthday I made him a complete setup with 10x10' tarp, gathered end hammock, tree straps, and whoopie slings. I bought cinch buckles, but they did not arrive in time to include them in the set up.
We had to go setup the stuff in a playground. He has no trees that work in his yard. Bummer. I live in a different state, but I promised we would do a camping trip before long.
Note: the tarp is not pulled evenly because a pole was in the way.
Have a good 'un,
