Editor’s Note: We are SO excited about this weekend’s Superhero Social! Get a jumpstart on the fun by making these easy Superhero Cuffs (which originally appeared on (cool) progeny last spring).

Kids love to transform into superheroes and with today’s super easy superhero craft, they can do just that in a few short minutes! Making lightening bolt superhero cuffs (out of glitter paper) will not only provide your little one with awesome imaginary powers, but will give you some real quality, one-on-one time!
