Here’s a different spin on a Rainbow Loom project – an action figure that flies off your finger!
These superhero flingers are a lot of fun. They work like a slingshot – pull it back and let it go! And since they’re made out of rubber bands, nothing gets broken, which is always a plus. 🙂
Owen (5) and Jonathan (almost 3) love shooting these. It was difficult for Jonathan at first, but he was determined to figure it out.
These flingers might make a good gift for an older kid to make for a younger one!
Aidan came up with this design for building an action figure with a cape. He was inspired by a baseball player tutorial that used this same technique to put a bill on a hat.
The hands are c-clipped together. He also made the arms longer than a regular action figure to give them additional stretch.
The design above is Superman. He has also made this Batman style figure. The video shows how to make a superhero with colors the opposite of Superman – red body and blue cape.
Here’s how to make one:
Note: This is not a beginner project. To simplify, leave off the cape. If you have any questions, just ask and we will do our best to answer them!
