The Hammer, known as Mjolnir...here's a tutorial on how to make your own!
And just like the hero, Thor, you can summon lightning too!
(If you have a child's imagination)
I have to work my genius magic and have them make something with supplies we already have.
Therefore, it's essentially free...you might have what it takes to make one too!
This is what my 8 year old daughter made for her 10 year old brother.
Here's the supply list:
18" to 20" PVC pipe
gray fabric (pillowcase in our case)
We began by rigging the PVC pipe so we could paint it.
Used the fan to help dry the paint!
Needs 2 coats for sure!
Then we took some gold cord and hot glued it inside the pvc...
Wrap it off and hot glue the ends...
it on twill tape to color it dark brown. Markers work too.
Threaded the twill tape up inside the pvc pipe and tied the end off at the top.
Tie the ends at the top...leaving a loop at the bottom for holding and swinging!
Now for the head of the hammer.
We took 3 layers of foam and cut them about 5 by 7" or so.
Then we wrapped them like a present in gray material.
We used an old pillowcase.
Wrap and hot glue as you go!
Try to make it symmetrical!
Fill the hole with hot glue and pound the pvc pipe into it!
Twist and push
Then trim and wrap up the fabric around the handle...glue in place.
don't have to tell anyone not to hit with it! It's fun to pound kids with this hammer!
