How to Make a Lasso for Children
This lasso is great for kids! ( Images)

Cowboys and Indians has been a popular children's game for decades, but as time moves on, fewer and fewer kids go outside and play. This lasso can be a great way to get your kids to turn off the TV and run around outside. Use it as a game for birthday parties, teach your kids about eye-hand coordination or just get them ready for the real thing. This lasso is simple and small enough for your little cowpoke.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

Things you need

  • Stiff rope, about 20 to 25 feet long

  1. 1

    Tie an overhand knot at one end of rope. To tie an overhand knot, make a loop with your rope and pull the end of rope through the loop. Make sure it is tight and secure.

  2. 2

    Make another overhand knot below the first one, but keep it loose and open.

  3. 3

    Take the knotted end and bring it around and back through the loop. Imagine as if you are tying a normal overhand knot, but you are looping it twice before you tighten the knot. Keep it loose.

  4. 4

    Take hold of the second loop around from the above overhand knot and pull the remaining length of rope taut. You should be left with a small loop.

  5. 5

    Take the other end of rope and thread it through the loop you just made and you have your lasso.
