Introduction: Turn Crutches Into Stilts

Are you short? Ever wanted to be as tall as everyone else? Well, now you can!  You can now feel tall, important, and awesomely-epic! 

Step 1: What You Need

Materials-

1 old pair of crutches 

Step 2: Handle

Move the handle bars on your crutches up so that it is on the highest notch.  If your crutches cannot be adjusted, then just leave it.  This is where you will place your feet.

Step 3: Pegs

At the bottom of your crutches, you will see notches so that you can adjust the hight of your crutches.  Make sure your crutches are on the lowest notch so that they are the tallest they can be.   The pegs that stick out will be your handle bars.

Step 4: How to Use Your New Stilts

Place your feet where you would place your hands when you are using your crutches properly.  Place your hands on the pegs of your crutches.  The crutches should be upside down.  If you are having trouble getting onto your stilts, practice by using a wall and slowly taking a few steps forward.  I suggest using shoes when using your stilts so that your feet won't hurt after a while.  Wear safety equipment and be safe.

would be ironic if you break your leg using this xD

If you have enough crutches of the same height you could also make a crutch tripod.

Yeah, this is cool, but you can always donate them back to the hospital or healthcare assiciated stuff with crutches... but this ible makes that out of the question...
