Materials for the Wonder Woman Crown and Cuffs
- 2 paper plates (you might need 3 if your child is older)
- Yellow Marker
- Red Glitter
Directions for a Wonder Woman Crown and Cuffs
Draw the Wonder Woman crown shape onto the center of the paper plate.
On the second paper plate (and third, if need be), eyeball the width of about half of your child’s forearm and draw an outline of the cuffs onto the paper plate.
Color the cuffs and crown yellow, then cut out.
Draw a star onto the cuffs and crown with glue. Cover the glue in red glitter, then let dry.
Once the stars are dry, cut a hole into each corner of the cuffs, and on either side of the crown. (You can either use the scissors or a single hole puncher.)
Thread string through each of the holes, leaving enough to tie around the child’s wrist (for the cuffs) and head (for the crown).
Tie a knot in the strings to hold them in place.
Tie the accessories onto your child, and they are ready to go off and save the day!
If you want to make this sturdier, you can add a layer of tape around every hole and use elastic string instead of the regular string. This will make the cuffs and crown easier to remove and wear again later.
Your Child is a Super Hero!
As you can see, this Wonder Woman crown and cuffs craft idea is a great little project that any age can help you make. While a bit messy with glitter and paint, it isn’t too bad for younger kids to help make. It adds perfectly with a Wonder Woman Costume, or just for a fun afternoon play time with your kids. Add on a cute blue and red bathing suit or leotard, and you have a simple costume in no time!
