Here’s a fun superhero craft for kids – turn plastic cups into arm cuffs that can be taken on and off!

Duct Tape Velcro Superhero Cuffs - They can be taken off and on

This craft was Jonathan’s idea (age 3)! The boys were cutting up plastic cups for something, and he took a cup with the bottom cut off and stuck it on his arm and asked me to make him, “those things I put on my arms and I can fly!”

We ended up making a set for Owen and Jonathan both, and I added strips of peel and stick velcro so that they can come off and on.

To make them, you will need:

  • Plastic cups
  • Duct tape
  • Peel and stick velcro
  • Scissors
  • Baby wipes – wipe off the blades of your scissors, and they will slice right through the duct tape!

Cut the bottom off of each cup. The boys’ arms are so tiny that I cut out a chunk of the cup as well. Even if you don’t reduce the size of the cup, cut it open lengthwise.
