Making a Rope

On Saturday we went to Five Medals and made a rope. It was easy, once we learned how.

Audrey, Megan, and I made the rope. There were two crank machines. They were a board nailed to another board that we stood on, the cranks are attached to hooks with some string on it. There was also a thing that looks like a mallet with four valleys. First Audrey cranked her crank, it had four hooks on it. I think it was to twist the string, then once that was done Megan took the mallet and walked slowly while I turned the rope. My thing had one hook and was to twist all of them together. When we where done they took small pieces and tied it so it would not fall apart.

We had a lot of fun at Five Medals, I hope to go again next year!

  1. It was fun! I wonder where they get those first strings/ I wonder if they make them too? Maybe next year we can ask. I didn’t think about it earlier.
