Silly Family Super Straws

Captain Underpants isn't your typical superhero. He's slightly dimwitted and sometimes disastrous, but he fights against evil with a huge heart and seriously silly pranks. Oh, and he's sporting underpants under that cape. Which is precisely why everyone in our home loves him!

After years of success in book form, Captain Underpants came to the big screen on June 2nd in Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie! And in celebration of their partnership with DreamWorks Captain Underpants, Tampico is giving away awesome prizes and hosting super fun games to help you and your kids #UnbottleLaffter. Follow Tampico on Facebook so you don't miss any of the fun.

We decided to celebrate the new Captain Underpants movie and #UnbottleLaffter, too, with a Silly Family Superhero Puppets Straw Craft to drink our Tampico Beverages with.

Silly Family Superhero Puppets Straw Craft

You can make these silly puppets on craft sticks if you'd like, but I'd highly recommend doing this straw craft with paper drinking straws so you can use them to drink your yummy Tampico beverage of choice. Plus, they help everyone know whose drink belongs to who!

Materials:

  • paper straws or craft sticks
  • tissue paper or felt
  • glue gun and glue sticks or craft glue
  • scissors
  • star stickers
  • construction paper
  • pictures of family members' faces

  

Steps:

Assemble all of your craft materials. Plug in your hot glue gun if you're using that type of glue. (Hot glue is easier if using felt for the cape.)

Trace a small circular object (like a bottle cap) over the faces in the family pictures to ensure that they are all even, perfect circles. Cut out circles.

Cut out squares of the tissue paper or felt. Fold the squares in half and temper the edges to form an exaggerated A-shape for the cape.

Place a small line of glue 2/3 of the way up on the straw or craft stick. Wrap the top, smallest edge of the cape around the line of glue.

Add an extra dab or line of glue to the front top third of the straw and place the photo circle on top of the glue.

To add more "superhero powers" use stickers, construction paper, and glue to add superhero emblems just under the faces.

Repeat with all straws or craft sticks. 

Let the glue dry fully before using straw crafts with your drinks!
