Learn how to make Super Simple & Spooky DIY Halloween Yard Ghosts. Fun for the…
I’ve always been a big fan of Wonder Woman. When I was little, I would spin around my house in my Wonder Woman underroos, twirling from plain Diana Prince into Amazon glambot and saver-of-the-world, Wonder Woman. So when my daughter insisted on dressing up as Wonder Woman for Super Hero Day at camp, I was pretty excited. She put her outfit together all by herself, not wanting any help from Mom until crisis struck! She didn’t have any Wonder Woman bracelets!!! Super Wonder Woman Mom to the rescue….
“No problem,” I said. “We’ll just make some!” And I gathered up the following materials:
- Two toilet paper rolls
- Glitter -preferably red and gold
- (But if your daughter decides to go with just pink and red like mine, that’s ok too-it’s all about having fun).
- 1 piece of construction paper (red is more authentic, but we used yellow)
- Hole punch
Step 1: Take the toilet paper roll and cut it into two pieces, each about a thumbs-width wide. Honestly, I just eyeballed it. Cut it as wide as you’d like, depending on how wider your superhero’s wrist is.
Step 2: Take each toilet paper piece and cut a straight line, so the toilet paper “bracelet” now becomes an open “cuff.”
Step 3: Punch a hole on each end of the cuff (where the ends meet). When you are done decorating, you’ll feed the ribbon through the hole so you can tie it.
Step 4: DECORATE and HAVE FUN
As you would with any glitter project, lay down the glue in whatever shape/pattern you want, then cover it in glitter, and shake off. Voila! Your glitter design is revealed!
We decorated with two glitter stripes and a gold star (made out of construction paper) in the middle. Technically, Wonder Woman has a stripe of tiny red stars and a red star in the middle, but we took some creative license.
TIP: I put our glue in little cups and let my girls use a Q-Tip as a brush. This helped them have more control and cut down on the mess.
Step 5: Let the glitter dry then carefully tie a ribbon through the holes. Now you have a Wonder Woman cuff that will stay put all day through all of your little super hero’s busy activities.
Zap! Pow! Bam! Enjoy!
Looking for more fun Wonder Woman kid-crafts?
Make a Wonder Woman Glitter Jar! (This post was written for a red, white, and blue patriotic jar but it will also work for Wonder Woman!) Plus–it’s super calming when you’re super hero gets tired.
Or Try a Water Bead Sensory Bin. The bin in this post was made with rainbow colors but you could definitely swap it for red and gold/yellow like Wonder Woman.
Or help your Mini Super Hero make a Thrill Chart of all their special adventures! This post was inspired by a Judy Moody book and it’s a favorite among mom-groups.
