Build a Homemade Pitching Machine

Build a Homemade Pitching Machine Have you ever wondered what you could do with an old leaf blower? Sometimes DIYers just get the urge to build something. Anything. If you have a child that has an interest in baseball you will love this project. The do-it-yourself leaf blower pitch machine is a great project for a Saturday afternoon. This machine was designed for children in little league. While this pitch machine isn't as fancy as a Jug's pitching machine you can assemble it from parts you probably have lying around. Once you finish using it as a pitch machine it can return to it's former glory as a leaf blower. Building this slow pitch machine is a great way to have fun with your kids. Dig that leaf blower out of the garage and let your little one bat like the pro's. For this project you will need some spare 2x4's, a leaf blower, 3 inch PVC pipe, (3 foot), bi-metal hole saw, extension cord, and a 5 gallon bucket of wiffle balls. The 2x4's are optional. You can choose to build a stand for your new pitching machine or use something 3 foot tall that you already own. If you really want to get crazy consider making the pitch machine sit flush on the stand. Little hands could load it easier and you wouldn't have to worry about vibrations from the motor knocking it off.[read the rest]

5 Ways I Got My Kids To Go Green

5 Ways I Got My Kids To Go GreenMy children are not so different from any other across the country. They like out door sports, they like shows on television, they have a Wii. Just like adults they like to see some tangible reward for their efforts. When we began to go green as a family it was hard to convince the kids that it was worth it. While they don't understand any impact our lifestyle has to a global community, they do understand the concept of money. We knew as parents that if we wanted to make big changes there must be some goal to work towards, and a prize for reaching that goal. We are good stewards of the land. Our family enjoys several camping, rafting and hiking trips a year. The children know that trash doesn't belong in animal habitats and when they see it they pick it up. The same goes for our community. When we are out on evening walks we make sure to pick up after ourselves and others. Through this experiment we were able to teach the children the importance of recycling. In their own way they know that, if everyone recycles, there will be more coloring pages to color. They also know that if you collect enough aluminum cans, you can take a family of 8 to Six Flags for the weekend. [read the rest]
