VARIETY OF TOYS MADE FROM COFFEE CANS
A can opener and some straps are all that are required to turn empty coffee cans into toys. A drum is made by cutting two slots in the side of a can to take a neck band, as shown. The lid is secured with a drop or two of solder. The clackers or can-walkers are prepared by making two slots diametrically opposed in the bottom of a can to receive the strap for the foot.
The loose or false rims inside the modern type of coffee can are easily removed and make excellent toy embroidery hoops
without alteration.â€”D. A. Butler.
