Hula-Hoop History

Posted by lindamartinandersen on March 5, 2013


“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.
