Make the Craft


  • Toilet Paper Rolls  
  • Coloured Paper
  • Glue Sticks
  • Scissors


Step 1:  Cover the paper toilet rolls in black or blue paper.

Step 2:  Cut out a yellow circle or a yellow triangle and paste it to the paper toilet rolls with the glue stick.

Step 3:  Make your symbols. Draw a shape on a black piece of paper (like a bat) or a letter (“S” for super) on a red piece of paper. 

Step 4: Cut your symbols out carefully using the scissors and paste them over the yellow circle or yellow triangle with the glue stick.

Step 5: Once the cuffs dry, cut the paper toilet rolls down the back so they can be easily slipped onto your arms. They are finished!
