Thor Week - Kid's Craft - Thor Hammer - Mjolnir

We are all so excited that Thor 2 came out last weekend! We have taken the opportunity to make a few projects inspired by this beloved and immortal hero. We are going to share these projects with you this week! 

Today, I am going to show you a quick and easy kid's craft. Our participants were 7 and 4 years old. 

We began by gathering a few materials found around the house. This included Aluminum Foil, toiler paper rolls, scotch tape, empty tea boxes, gift wrap ribbon, and some glue and a hold punch (not pictured). 

I started by having the kids wrap the tea boxes (or any small box) with the aluminum foil. I had the not-so-shiny side showing so it seemed more like the metal in Thor's hammer. 

Next we cut a hole in the box and aluminum. We taped two toilet paper rolls together and added glue around the edge on the top. 

Hold the rolls down firmly and wait a minute for the glue to dry. 

Next, we used a hole punch to punch a hole at the bottom of the tube. We looped a ribbon into it to mimic the wrist loop on Thor's Hammer. Then we used the ribbon to wrap around the tube. 

Here is the completed project and happy kid who loves to play with his masterpieces. This was a fast project (15-20 minutes) that kept the boys busy and peaceful- bonus! 

We also had the kids do some coloring. Who doesn't love coloring?  They colored pictures of Thor that were printed from this website. They have a ton of great printables there!

Stay tuned for more Thor-inspired crafts this week as we celebrate the return of The Immortal Avenger in his sequel!
