“Hula-Hoop History” by Linda Martin Andersen
“A Writer’s Playground”–A place to find wordplay, writing, and monthly calendar activities for kids and those young at heart.
Hula-Hoop History…read all about it.
Joyce Hostetter, a historical novel author and friend, introduced me to www.history.com. If you haven’t checked it out, today’s an extra fun day to do so. I subscribe to their e-newsletter that spotlights things that happened this day in history. Today’s news headline caught my attention. I hope it catches yours too. Hula-Hoop–give it a whirl, at home, on the playground, even at work.
Thanks to Wham-O, who brought us all the Hula-Hoop. Please share your favorite Hula-Hoop story or other comments. What other famous toy did Wham-O develop? Read to see. Just for fun, how many hyphens do you see here?
Thanks for visiting “A Writer’s Playground.” Come again soon. Bring a friend.
