Captain America Coin Bank DIY Easy to do. Most of the kids, especially the boys, love superheroes. Classic superheroes include Superman, Batman, Spiderman and the like. The movies, the toys and even the clothes that involve superheroes on it lure kids to buy or support it. On the other hand, there are also adults that love collecting these items.
Coin banks are a great way of saving money. Those who have spare coins can just put it in a coin bank. The piggy bank is the traditional version of the coin container that is normally used by children to save money. In general, these are made from ceramic and porcelain that can be easily broken whenever the owner decides to take the money from it. As the time goes by and the technology developed, little by the little, the piggy banks are becoming obsolete. But to make it more interesting, the piggy bank evolved into different forms and materials like plastic.
There is a saying that, “You better start saving while you are young,” thus, we must educate and expose our kids as early as they could grasp the general idea of saving. This tutorial is a great way to start. And beyond learning, we must also try to upcycle materials in our own home, as what this tutorial is teaching us. So if you are ready to explore then let us begin! Making this Captain America Coin Bank.
Gather all the materials needed for this tutorial:
- red, white and blue sponge paper
- an empty plastic bottle
- a cutter
- a hot glue
- a pair of scissors
Step 1: Remove the bottom lock of the plastic bottle cap using a sharp cutter.
Step 2: Cut a strip of red and blue sponge paper. The width of these strips should cover the half body of the plastic bottle.
Step 3: Glue one end of the blue sponge strip on the upper portion of the plastic bottle.
Step 4: Carefully stretch the blue sponge paper to get the form of the plastic bottle’s body. Hot glue the free end of the blue strip to the bottle’s body.
Step 5: Hot glue one end of the red sponge strip on the lower half of the plastic bottle.
Step 6: Do the same process for the red strip to get the shape of the bottle. Hot glue the free end of the red sponge paper on the bottle.
Step 7: Cut a strip of white sponge paper that is at least 1.5 to 2-centimeter in width.
Step 8: Vertically place and glue the white strip sponge on the red area of the plastic bottle. Make sure that this covers the extreme top and bottom area of it. Cut the excess white strip afterwards.
Step 9: Continue placing the white strips vertically on the sides of the first strip until you cover the whole bottom of the bottle. Make sure to place spaces in between the white strips that are the same as the width of the strips.
Step 10: Cut a star from the white sponge paper. The size of the start should be scaled in reference to the size of your coin bank.
Step 11: Hot glue the white star in the middle of the blue sponge area on top of the bottle.
Step 12: Create a slit on the cap of the plastic bottle. Make sure that the width and the length of the slit can accommodate the thickness and the diameter of the biggest coin you’d probably drop here.
Step 13: Close the coin bank by placing the cap with a slit on top.
