My 9yr old son using crutches.

Does anyone have any ideas what I can put on the bottom of the crutches while we are walking in dirt? We are going to a farm and my son is on crutches, I don't know what to put on the bottom so they dont sink in the dirt. Please offer advise we are going tomorrow. Thank you in advance for your help!

  • I was on crutches for a couple of months recently. I never found anything I could put on the bottom to keep them from sinking. I found the best thing to do was test the ground before I put my full weight on the crutches. I hope someone else has a suggestion, but that's the best I've got!

  • Take a tennis ball and cut a slit on the top and put that on it.
