Two used large juice or family sized cans
Thick yarn, twine, old shoes laces or other tough string-like material
Lever-type can/bottle opener
Turn your cans upside down so that the opening faces down. Puncture two holes opposite each other on top of each of the can, like this:
Then measure your string material so that it will reach from the can to the belly button of your child and back again. Cut it. Thread it through the tin can, like this:
Repeat for the second can. Now the stilts are ready for your children to have fun! My kids love these. They had some friends over the evening we made them and they were a hit with all ages.
