Hoop

Materials: a stick, a strip cut from an old tyre tub or other types of strings.
Construction: Bend a stick to make a circle, overlap the two ends of a stick to make a joint. Tie the overlapped part securely with a strip cut from an old tyre tube or other types of strings. Cover the overlapped edges of the Hoop well. The edges can hurt children if not well covered.
Use of hoop: Children put hoops around the waist. The hoop rotates around the waist as the children twist their bodies at a speed rate.
