In celebration, we went to our local hardware store to get the items required for super-awesome hula hoops. Here is how we did it, step-by-step. It is so easy even kids can do it!!

|These are the 1" couplings and dish soap. I put some dish soap on each end, so that they were slick.|
|After the tubing is soft, and the coupling is slick, the whole mess slides together easily, making these:|
|This is our finished project. |

|Here are the happy kids. |
They had a competition to see who could do it the longest, then they tried some fancy moves.
