Here are some instructions for how to make your very own superhero cuffs.  A fun craft with a materials you’ll probably already have on hand at home.

Mess: Moderate, Time: 10 Minutes plus drying time, Adult Assistance: Moderate

You will need:

  • Toilet paper tubes
  • Paint (metallic or glitter works great)
  • Paint brush
  • Scissors
  • Felt stars, foam shapes or stickers to decorate.

Gather your toilet pacuffs 001cuffs 004per rolls (as many as you’d like to make) and have an adult assistant cut a slip from top to bottom.   Round off the corners so there are no pointy corners.

Next (after you have protected your work surfaces) it’s time to paint!

We decided to use Crayola glitter paint in blue which worked really well. Metallic paint would look cool too or regular ol’ liquid paint would work too.  Paint your toilet paper rolls as desired. No paint? Coloring or decorating with crayon, markers or pencils would work well too!cuffs 007

Top tip: Try to paint the rolls as they stand up and try not to press them flat as then they are very hard to make back into a tube.  We also found that if we put too much paint on it also caused them to lose their tube shape so a few layers of paint may work better than one thick layer. 

 Once your paint is dry (which really didn’t take long at all), you can peel and stick on your decorations. If you signed up for a Bramble Box free trial superhero pretend play kit you will have plenty of sticky back felt stars to decorate your cuffs. Otherwise they could be decorated with foam shapes, card shapes or stickers. Decorate them as you wish!
