Who needs toys?!

Lately my oldest son has been searching for and cutting up any cardboard boxes he can find
and then confiscating all my duct tape to craft some weapons, both by himself and with his friend.
They owe me....

Here's how you make your own weapons.
Trace out your pattern on the cardboard and make at least 3 copies.

Layer them together, reinforcing them in key spots with craft sticks.
Then you start covering them with duct tape.

And more tape....

And more tape....until it is completely covered and durable.

Then add a little black electrical tape for the handle and some other embellishments

and you end up with quite the aresenal of weapons.   

Now little brother is getting in on the action.

Crafting his own little set of knives

Next on Z.'s project list:  Cut out and sew a cloak so that he can be a character from the Ranger's Apprentice series of books.  Think Medieval Warrior.

He's already got the weapons to go with the costume. 
We'll post his sewing project next week.


  1. Whoa, those boys mean business! Mr. Z has quite the collection of weaponry. :)
