hula hoop supplies from the hardware store: PVC piping 3/4 inch or 1 inch (cut to the length desired I did 8,9, and 10 feet for 4-6 grade students), double ended connector pieces (same size as your tubing) Hot water and container (to warm the ends of the tubing to fit the connector piece into both ends of the tube) electrical tape (variety of colors) some of the students also wrapped their hula hoop with yarn, you could also paint them if you primed it first.
