Making an Eskimo Yo-yo is really simple. You take two bean bags, rolled-up socks, hacky-sacks, or whatever (just make sure they weigh the same) and sew about 3-4 feet of string, leather, yarn, etc. to them. You have now completed your Eskimo yo-yo. The trick is to get it going.
You hold a point not quite in the exact center of the string. The object of the game is to get one bean bag spinning in a circle around your hand clockwise and get the other one to spin counter-clockwise at the same time. Good luck!
