Toy Stories: Traction Man Action Figure

Traction Man

The picture book series following Traction Man and his trusty sidekick, Scrubbing Brush, is filled with adventure and rescue missions. Here’s a craft that requires a little prep work, but will be a hit with early elementary aged children.

You’ll Need:

a manila folder

Traction Man (copied on light brown paper)

Traction Man Action Figure (copied on white card stock)

colored pencils

glue

scissors

sandwich size baggies

tape

Directions:

For adult: Cut one Traction Man sheet in half and glue to a manila folder. Cut out the rectangle above the lightning bolt.

For children: Color Traction Man using colored pencils. Cut out the action figure pieces.

Back of Traction Man

Tape the sandwich baggie to the back of the rectangle, leaving the top layer of the closure open so you can open and close the baggie. Traction Man and all of his pieces will fit for storage. (Plus, this craft looks like the action figure box!)
