Simple craft project for older kids. Make stilts by taking two large coffee cans, poking two holes on each side, directly under the bottom of the can. String twine (or other tough string) through the holes and tie the ends together to create a rope handle. Might add a small four inch piece of garden hose or plastic pipe for softer handles. The rope handle should be long enough for the child to stand on the can and not have to hunch over.
