Toy: Moon Crescent Swing (by TaffywDuck)

Moon Crescent Swing Toy

This is a little more complicated to build but fun none the less!

  • You need three strings of about 30-40 cm in length, 0.5 cm diameter, of twisted paper rope.
  • Put the three strings together to form a thicker twisted paper rope, and tape the ends so the three pieces hold together.
  • Cover the whole thing with twine, making sure to cover all the tape.
  • Once you have covered the rope with twine, leave about 10 to 15 cm of twine, on which you will string beads, rawide, wooden shapes, etc.
  • Tie the other end of the twine to the other end of the twisted paper rope, so that you now have a moon crescent (or half circle).
  • Add a quick link or a twine loop at the top of the swing to hang it.
  • Make sure that there are no strings hanging that the bird could get caught in.
