A bucket and a rope: this simple contraption has provided hundreds of hours of open-ended, imaginative, gross-motor fun (happy hooligans)

this was the hit of father's day. the link for instructions is posted next to this pin on the same board. I used 3/8" x 3' square dowels instead of the bamboo plant sticks. The bamboo did not work very well. My mother (89 years) and one of my grandsons (3 years) loved playing it. Have fun!
