The biggest benefits of hammocking so far have been: Fellowship. The Boys LOVE hammocking and will spend hours together “hanging” out. Relaxing. Nothing defines chilling out better than a hammock. Reading. This one caught me by surprise. The hammock has become the favorite reading spot at home. Big brother has turned it into special cozy and read-aloud time too. My husband has hooked the boys up with Special gear to make their hammocks easy to hang. Here’s his gear list so far: The Ultimate Hang (book- Because we homeschool… There’s a book for everything:)) Hammocks- Hennessey Hammock Expedition Asym Straps- To extend the distance between trees Carabiner hooks Snake Skins– These make set up a synch! For kicks and giggles, you can enjoy all about hammocking with our favorite hammocking YouTuber Shug Emery. Former Ringling Brother Clown and all around funny guy, he loves to share all about the art of hammocking. So if you, like me, are always on the lookout for new ways to encourage reading, I would suggest looking into getting a hammock for your kids. What a fun, quiet place to curl up with a great book!
