Stilts are simple to make and a lot of fun! These stilts have adjustable foot rests and can be used by kids aged from around 8 years to adults.
They are a great tool to improve a kids balance and coordination.
Most kids learn to master the art of walking on stilts in no time at all – some tend to get it straight away while others take a little longer.
If you are going to make a pair, you will probably benefit by making at least two pair at the same time.
I certainly found that to be the case with my grandkids.

Footrest option #1 – each footrest is fixed to the leg with two bolts.
Footrest option #2 – each footrest is fixed with one bolts and a metal ‘A cover or protection such as a building paper that envelops the exterior walls or roof frame prior to the cladding being fixed.

The latter is faster for adjusting the height of the footrest and is great if the kid wants to continually change the height of the footrests.
