I've been meaning to share this idea for a while, and what time is better than football season?
My father-in- law last year made a large version goalpost for my son. He LOVED it! So much, that for Christmas, my husband made two on a smaller scale. Simply using PVC pipe cut into smaller pieces, and the following for each goalpost:
1 2.5 pound circular weight
2 Elbow joints
1 Collar piece to fit post into weight
We purchased a rug from Amazon that looks like a football field (we found it in the Kids Rugs section) for $40 and voila- football field! My son loves making touchdowns, field goals and even setting up his Fisher Price people to make a game complete with narration (Maybe he's a budding ESPN reporter?)
