This is a great craft to encourage kids to start saving their spare change. Get them to start saving early with these cute superhero coin banks. This DIY tutorial comes from the creative people at Fireflies + Mud pies.
For this project, you will need:
-- Quart glass jars (available online)
-- Coin bank mason jar caps (you can find these online)
-- X-acto knife
-- Yellow duct tape
-- Red duct tape
-- Blue spray paint
-- Black spray paint
You can find all of the paint and tape at a craft store.
Paint the glass jars
Spray paint the glass jars and caps in a well-ventilated area or outside. You may have to do two coats of paint to make it completely opaque. Let the paint completely dry before going to the next step.
Cut the duct tape
Draw out your designs on the duct tape. Then, use the X-acto knife to cut the duct tape around your designs, as shown in the picture. If you aren't good at free-handing the superhero designs, you can print them off of the internet and use them as a stencil.
Attach the duct tape to the jars
Once you have completely making your design, attach the duct tape to the glass jars.
Set out the superhero coin banks in a kid's room and allow them to enjoy saving money!
