hey guy, it's Kristin.
So in today's video I"m going to show you how to makethis tetherball set.
It was actually prettyfast and easy to do.
It only took about an hourwith the exception of letting the concrete setso this is a cool little project you can do with the kids, and it keeps them entertainedif they're kind of boredor maybe they're sitting inside olaying on those electronics.
get them outsideand get them to play with this, it's so much funso now I"m going to show you what you need and how to build itfor this project, you will need a tire and some plastic.
you will also need a drill and a trowel, some wiresome wire cuttersand about 160 lbs of concrete , a tetherballa bucket, a pole that's about 8ft long and a piece of woodthis is also all listed in the video descriptionstart by placing the piece of wood on the ground then placethe plastic over that and then set your tire on topthe next thing we'll do is mix up the concretejust follow the directions on the back of the bagthen you will begin by placing the concrete on the inner partof the tire.
We really want to make surethat we start on the inner part of the tire and then fill it inso that when we're done, the concrete doesn't slip through the holedepending on the size tire you have160 lbs should be plenty but you may needa little bit more so it will just depend on the sizetire you havethe next thing we're going to do is drill3 holes into the poleYou'll want 2 at the bottom and 1 at the topyour going to want to make sure when you drill the hole, it goes all the way throughso you're going to have it big enough to fit the rebar into itonce you have the first hole in, you'regoing to do the other hole on the opposite side of the poleand about 1 inch above it.
This is so that therebar can kind of crisscross.
Once you have all 3 holesdrilled you will want to put in your eyeboltat the very top of the poleand this is where the tetherball is going to be connected toat the bottom of the pole, once you've insertedthe rebar, you're going to take some of your wireand start twisting it around your rebarbecause we don't want it to move around, we want it to be held in placeso just make sure you do one piece for thebottom part of the rebar and one for the top so that they don't movethen you're going to insert this into the concretenow we do recommend that you just kind of placeit in there gently then take the back ofyour trowell or hammer or just something and sort of tap itinto the concretethis way we can make sure it's sitting leveland is completely flat and as far downinto that tire as we can get itthe next step is somewhat optional, you can use some woodand some clamps to hold the pole in place but if your concreteis thick enough and it set a little bit, the pole should stayin place until it hardensand that's it, once the concrete is dry, you can connectthat tetherball and the kdisand everyone can start playing wit it.
This is sucha fun game.
