How To Make Bucket Stilts

Difficulty: All Levels (with adult help)

Safety Warning: Adults need to supervise closely for this one – you’ll be using a drill, so take the lead! Always wear the correct protective equipment.

In How To Make Bucket Stilts, Alan shows you how to make your own bucket stilts using just a few household items. He talks you through what you’ll need and shows you step-by-step what to do.

If you don’t have old paint cans, get inventive – what else could you use? Just make sure you’ve chosen a sturdy base that’s the right size. Remember, it has to take the weight of the stilt walker!

Once you’ve made these, you can stomp around on your stilts like a circus pro.
