Don’t Try This at Home


  • Chopsticks, skewers or dowels
  • Wire or string
  • Styrofoam


  1. Your elf will reach new heights as he or she tilts on mini stilts while decorating the tree, peeking onto a shelf or spying on you using this higher vantage point! First, they’ll need to find long sticks they can repurpose into stilts, like chopsticks.
  2. Using wire, your elf will tie their legs to the stilts at the knee. Both of your elf’s upper arms will also be secured to the chopsticks.
  3. So that they don’t topple over, your elf may punch the stilts into a piece of cardboard, or lean on a nearby object for support!
