Captain Hook's hook, recycling kids craft

Captain Hook's hook

Do you buy every toy you child wants to play with? Even if you know it won't last long? I don't think so. I'll show you how to make Captain Hook's hook in 5 minutes, if your kids are playing pirates.

  1. You will need a disposable cup, preferably a paper one.
  2. You will need also a piece of cardboard, for example a used box.
  3. Fold the cardboard in two and cut a hook out of it.
  4. Glue the two halves of the hook together, leaving approx. 2 cm (3/4 inch) unglued at its bottom end.
  5. Fold those unglued ends outward, you will glue them to the cup later on.
  6. Wrap the hook in aluminum kitchen foil and attach it to the cup, gluing the flaps you made in the previous step to its bottom.
  7. Make holes in the cup for better ventilation. Let's play now!
  8. You may also paint the cup according to your (i.e. your child's) taste.
