Yo-yo's are fun for everyone. Whether you're just learning or a master full of tricks, yo-yo's put smiles on peoples faces around the world. But wouldn't it be awesome to make one yourself? In this Instructable you will learn how to make one using pop cans and hot glue.
Two pop cans
Hot glue gun and lots of glue
Roughly 4 feet of string
Some sort of heavy duty cutter to cut pencil (I used hedge clippers)
Step 1: Cleaning & Cutting
First, clean out the pop cans. It's simple, just run 'em under water. Once clean, you need to cut the tops off. To do so, puncture the pop can with one blade of your scissors. Then cut around the can using the hole to start cutting. Once you cut all the way around, you may want to trim the edge. Then do the same process to the other can. Once you have both can tops cut clean, push the drinking hole thingy so it's kinda sealed again. This is so no hot glue gets out. Now take your pencil and cut it so there is a piece that is about 2 inches long. Then set it between the two pop tops so you can make sure that the gap between the tops is ideal. (about 1cm) If not shorten by cutting more. If its not long enough, (though it shouldn't because 2 inches is generally longer) make another that's longer.
