LEGO Capes for Minifigures (with pattern)

 Let’s learn how to make Duck (or Duct Tape) LEGO capes!  Your child’s minifigures can never have too many accessories.  Even a knight, policeman, or princess can use a cape!
You can even make the capes reversible!  See the guy on the right?  He has fire on the front and red on the back.  Cool!


Fold a piece of duck tape in half, trace around pattern (see below for printable), cut, and punch holes.  Voila!  If you want to make a reversible cape, put two different types of duck tape together first and then cut.

The holes may be a little tight. Just wiggle them over the body pegs and stick the head back on.  The holes will stretch out over time.


Note:  We used a small hole punch that we already owned.  Larger punches would work too.

If you need a pattern, Mr. Busy Kids, made one that you can print out {here}.  Re-size it to fit your duck tape.  Our entire cape was about 1 3/4 inches wide and tall.  We used an actual LEGO cape to make the pattern.

You’re a rock star mom!
