Tin Can Stilts

  • 2 empty coffee tins
  • 2 lengths of rope (or skate laces, heavy-duty twine or string etc.)
  • electric drill
  • file or rasp (optional)

Make a set of tin can stilts with a couple of coffee cans and some rope. The kids will have fun walking around the yard on them.

Remove the labels from your coffee tins. Drill 2 holes, opposite each other, about an inch from the bottom of the tin. If the drill leaves any rough or sharp edges, you can smooth them quickly with a rasp or file. Thread a length of rope through the holes and knot each end tightly inside the tin, and voila! Stomp away!
