and not the old tire planters. check it out! how fun
for your little ones!

It's a little tire teeter totter! I would probably cut into the sides of the wood a little to contour it so it might feel better for the little one!

Here is a link that might be useful: another use of ran old tire!

I am not sure that would be an easy thing to do. There are steel belts running through tires now and most folks would not have the equipment to cut them. If you still had some old polyglass tires you might could do it but I am not sure about the steel belted radial tires.

It is a very cute idea though.

Very cute, but I would do what was suggested above & add a couple of rope holds(just large enough to get hands in it), 1 on each end between the bolts or little ones might be afraid of falling off. Would also only use it on the grass not a patio. Much softer landing!! Great color & looks like a cute little worm! Jan

I don't read French, but it looks to me more like a balance board than a teeter totter. No matter what it is, it's cute. I'd be tempted to make one, but with the amount of stuff we have in our yard for my 1 child, people probably think I run a day care center!
