Imaginative Play with Kids: DIY Wonder Woman Tiara and Bracelets
Have a little Wonder Woman fan? Little Sister has taken a huge interest in the Amazonian princess this year! Since imaginative play is one of her favorite things to do, we made a Wonder Woman tiara and bracelets craft for her to wear with her Wonder Woman nightgown (affiliate link). They are easy to make and a great way to recycle a cereal box into something useful and fun.

How to make the Wonder Woman Pretend Play Crafts
- paper towel tube or toilet paper tubes
- empty cereal box
- printable superhero tiara templates
- metallic red and yellow paint – or use regular paint
DIY Wonder Woman Tiara Craft
Print the tiara template in the black and white option. Cut around the 3 pieces.
Cut the front (or back) off from a cereal box. Place the template on the cardboard, trace, and then cut it out.
Paint the cut cereal box with the metallic yellow paint. Gold glitter glue would be a fun option to paint on afterwards if using regular yellow paint. The metallic paint set is awesome! Ours came in 6 different colors. We did a couple coats with drying time in between.
Paint a red star on or use red glitter glue for extra fun! Alternatively, cut a red star from construction paper and glue in place.
Tape the 3 pieces together on the backside – 1 long stip on each side of the crown part with the star. Wrap the strips around the child’s head to get the correct fitting for crown. Add tape accordingly. Now it’s ready to be worn!
How to make Wonder Woman Bracelets
Paint the cardboard tube with the metallic yellow paint. Do 2-3 coats with drying time in between. Once dry, cut the cardboard tube in half. Then cut the cardboard tube lengthwise. We actually only used half of the paper towel tube and are saving the other half for a different craft. It just depends on how big you want them to be. Little Sister is 4 so small bracelets are perfect.
She put on her Wonder Woman nightgown, the tiara, and bracelet cuffs then pretended to lasso us and her stuffed animals with a jump rope. If not familiar, the Lasso of Truth is one main weapons. It’s a great way to start a conversation about the importance of telling the truth.
