Box Stilts

Here's a fun little craft the kids can help make and even play with outside too.

All the supplies needed: 2 Juice cartons, string, a pen or pencil, newspaper, scissors, and tape.

Start by punching a hole on the side near the top with your pen or pencil. Make another hole on the other side. Then string a string through the holes and tie (should be about child's waist height).

Stuff the box full of newspaper. The more you put in the better. After it was finished we had to reopen one box to put more newspaper in.

Tape the ends closed and ta da he is now four inches taller.
