We get these awesome cardboard tubes from my mother-in-law. We’ve made all sorts of things with the tubes, and I really, really wanted to make a chair with our last batch.
I made the mistake of involving the kids in the research process. Luke came across a cardboard tube Superman, and it was over. Ben wanted a cardboard Batman, so we decided to make the Justice League.
I traced the different parts on construction paper and the boys cut them out while I hot glued them into place. They all look really good. I was going to wait to blog about them I until we had more cardboard tubes to finish the Justice League, but the superheros took a real beating under Ben’s creativity. Flash came down with a bad case of the “alphabet sticker bumps”.
We’ve since finished Martian Manhunter (the green tube with a red X on him) and now we have a fresh set of tubes to finish Wonder Woman and Hawk Girl.
My cardboard furniture will have to wait.
