Two Second Super Hero Cuffs

There is a wonderful thing going on over at Made. It is the month of the BOY. Ohhhh I love it. I don't often post the crafts I make with my boys, but believe me a lot of boy stuff goes down at the Crawford home! The tutorial I submitted was not selected (no biggie, have you SEEN the caliber of projects going on over there? Wow!) But I still wanted to share it because my boys LOVE them and I honestly think it is the easiest "craft" I have ever done, I honestly feel like I am cheating calling it a craft ha!
Sawyers school has a wonderful program where the parents bring in re-cycable materials and they let the children have free reign with tape, glue, markers, paint etc. and they make creations. The teacher will not allow toilet paper rolls though because of sanitation concerns. Well, that didn't stop me from saving them and I now had a mountain in our storage room and I had to come up with something to use them, hence the super hero cuffs.
It literally can take seconds to make! The boys were so excited with the ones they created for themselves I couldn't get them to hold still for a picture.
But then while they were sleeping I made MY super hero cuffs and all of a sudden they would pose it up if it meant they got a turn!
Sawyer got pretty creative with his saying that when slapped on a bad guys wrist they would take away his powers. Finn said that his made him fly and shot lazars
Excuse the hilarious face paint on the boys. Finn doesn't ever want to be a normal spiderman, he always wants to be a cooler spiderman with different powers. Like Orange Spiderman with red strips who has "poison in his teeth".... I guess he has a great imagination? I just had to share since it cost nothing, took barely anytime and was such a hit! Now head over to MADE to get some more fabulous boy ideas!
