Super Hero Arm bands - a DIY

Who can say no to that face?
Apparently, C knows what super heros are.  All day yesterday he was wearing an empty Crayola crayon box on his arm and using his Super Powers!  After MUCH convincing, I got the box off his arm and put the crayons back in it.

From the moment he woke up all he wanted to do was get his powers back.  No idea where he gets these things, but I love it :)  C repeatedly asked me to make him some powers, and breakfast didn't count. So, having finished off a roll of paper towels, I got some inspiration.


  • 1 empty paper towel roll
  • Spray paint
  • elastic
  • tin foil
  • needle and thread or sewing machine
  • craft glue
How to:

Photo Steps. Sorry about the flash.

  • Cut open the paper towel tube and press flatish
  • Spray paint the paper towel tube
  • Wait... play Ring Around the Rosie, answer the question "Powers done yet?" about 5 billion times
  • Once done, cut tube to size
  • Figure out how much elastic you need and sew that on to the painted tube.
  • Cut out a bazillion little tin foil shapes until you get the right one
  • Glue said shape onto the tube and let dry while child destroys house
TADA! Done.
One happy little boy :)
