Have you ever dreamed of being really tall? Walking on stilts
is a fun and adventurous sport. But where are you going to
get a decent-priced pair of stilts to try for your first time?
With these instructions, you can add as much height as you want
and not hurt your wallet in the meantime. All you need is the know-
how to use some simple tools — or a friend who can help!
Building your own pair of stilts ensures that they’re made just for
your body, and when you’re done you’ve learned another crafty
skill. Then all you’ll need is someone to help you learn to walk tall
— and also how to fall. It’s a blast and we highly recommend it.
Stilt walking can be as easy as it looks.
