What to do when you’ve promised your kid that you’d make him wings for his hand-me-down Buzz Lightyear costume, but a snowstorm keeps you from getting out for supplies?
If you’re a Lazy Mom who doesn’t want to get messy with paint, you manage to convince your Buzz-loving-son that a jet pack would be a better idea in case of too much wind. It turned out pretty well, and it only took about an hour or so.
We scrounged around and got a glue stick, the last of the construction paper, a cardboard box, packing tape, and some of a used-on-one-side paper roll. And then we went at it. The one trouble spot was figuring out how to attach the jet-pack (oops!), but I think it worked out well also.
