Instagram Giveaway, swing and spin backyard swing


I am teaming with Swings & Things, (a Kelowna BC Company!), to giveaway a Swing & Spin. Or should I say ‘A SWIIIIIIIIIIIIINNG & SPIIIIIIIIIIINN!’

Last year I received a large Swing & Spin from Swings & Things and reviewed it here. Since its been about a year with this swing I can tell you that this thing defines our yard. It is in use almost every single day.  I love it for so many reasons…..

backyard swing, family It is such a simple thing to do with the kids. We all pile on in a clump of legs and swing together. Or we lay back on it and look up at the trees… and I try to talk them into getting off and just gently rocking me.

When there are a herd tiny friends over they all stack onto the swing.  I can just watch them from my kitchen window….and all their noise is way over there. It’s working for me.


It’s also helped them grow in their physical self-confidence. I have seen my little girl go from cautious and hesitant on the swing, to standing up and pushing her bodyweight around to try and gain some air.  I watch my son twist the swing as high as his tiny biceps can shove, then jump on and whirl with the swing as it untwists.  They are becoming more fearless and it makes me so proud to hear them laughing like tiny maniacs as we push them as high as we can (obviously Dad does this way better than Mom).
