Keeping your eye on a few children can be difficult and watching a whole day care full of kids can be a real task. Walking from one place to another with a lot of children has just been made easier with the invention of the walking rope. Each child has his own loop to hold onto, with two loops in the front and the back for the adults to use. This allows everyone to be holding on to something, so everyone can stay together as a group.

  1. 1

    Cut two pieces of fabric, 4 inches by 45 inches, and cut 12 straps, 2 inches by 6 inches. Increase the length of the long fabric and add additional straps to make a longer walking rope.

  2. 2

    Lay one long piece of fabric face up on a flat surface. Fold each strap in half and line the edge of the straps up with the edge of the fabric, so they lie towards the centre of the fabric, and pin them in place. The straps should be 6 inches apart and alternate from side to side. Go around the entire rectangle, so there is one loop at each end of the walking rope.

  3. 3

    Lay the other long piece of fabric face down directly on top of the other piece and pin it in place. Sew the pieces together along the two longest sides and one of the short sides, at least half an inch inside the fabric. Remove the pins as you sew.

  4. 4

    Turn the fabric right side out, so the straps now point away from the centre of the walking rope. Fill the rope with cotton stuffing until it is completely packed.

  5. 5

    Sew the last side together, folding the edges inward so the seam looks neat.
