Why has my son hauled an old tyre swing up our oak tree?

Ok….so, now he appears to be hanging it on a branch half way up.

Ahhhh, so he wants to fill it with water does he? That old bit of rope and a bucket should make it easier.

Hmmmm…that’s it. Now he has climbed the tree, reset the rope on a higher branch (after a quick discussion about forces and gravity), and can haul up whatever he likes!

What a great invention!

‘Mum-can we have a cup of tea and a biscuit in the tree?’

Absolutely! Freshly hauled by a simple pulley system.
