Day 157: Wooden Stilt Walking

Day 157 of #365 Creative #Ideas to do with your kids: Can your kids walk on stilts? Kids learn the finer points of balance and coordination with these tall balancing stilts. Help your kids to mount the stilts and get their balance first, and once they are walking safely on the stilts, they can even play games like ‘last man standing’ or you can make a simple obstacle course for them to negotiate. Stilts are not hard to use and take little time to master. Stilts don’t only build balance and endurance skills, they are also good for developing determination to learn. This is a great parent and child wood working project – build your own or find branches with smaller side branches in the right position to use as stilts. Your kids will love being much taller and having a different view of the world!
