Balance Beam

So we needed to do the balance activities to finish the Running With The Pack adventure for Wolf, and while we could have just dropped a piece of wood on the floor I took the opportunity to make the balance beam that my kids have been asking for.

I took a 2x4 and cut it to 6' long, then cut three 1' sections for support and 2 lengths of 2x3 for additional support.  Glued and screwed everything together so that it would be nice and strong for a bunch of kids jumping around on it.

Painted the bottom blue to seal it.

Painted the top yellow.

Then masked off the yellow in the center and painted it blue to get a blue and gold striped effect.
