Aluminum can stilts

Time needed: 15 minutes
Skills needed: hammering
Materials needed:
  • 2 clean cans
  • scissors
  • string
  • hammer 
  • nail

This is a classic. Aluminum can stilts. So classic, they were once tin can stilts. start with 2 large cans. Since these are for my preschooler, I didn't use the really big number 10 cans, but I used some canned peach cans. Using a hammer and nail, poke a hole on each side of each can near the top. Loop strings through the holes and tie the string in a knot.
Make sure each string is the same length. Then, let them enjoy it! My daughter loved these stilts!
