superhero cuffs

By Nicole.

I think it’s been mentioned a time or two before on Small Fry, but my Dash truly believes he is a super hero. (Find a couple different ways I organize all his personas here and here.) It is evident always in his talk and play. I wanted to come up with a way for him to bring a little Superhero with him wherever he goes, especially now that costumes have been all we talk about lately with Halloween. If he needs to feel brave, or take care of a friend in need, even if he can’t wear the whole uniform, he can always look down and remember how super he is! Here’s how you can whip these up at your house:

Superhero Cuffs

All you need is empty toilet paper rolls or a paper towel roll cut into halves! Depending on the size of your heroes wrists you can cut a slit up the middle so it’s a true cuff style, or even tape it to be a smaller cylinder.

We’ve found the best way to cut precise shapes with duct tape is to cut a strip and lay it down on a Self-Healing Cutting Mat. Cut out your shape with an exacto knife and then remove it from the mat! No more sticky scissors!

    SO cute!! I will have to do Wonder Woman ones for my daughter! She helped me make her a crown out of a toilet paper roll last week, and she loved it. LOVE finding creative inexpensive fun crafts!

    Thanks for the idea!!
