Indy Crafting (Indiana Jones, that is)

diy indiana jones whip

My sons have been introduced to Indiana Jones via the Lego Indiana Jones games (they’re still too young for the movies), and they like to play Indiana Jones (when my 2 year-old was a bit younger, he would say “I’m Andy Dones!”). I made them each a special Indiana Jones cross-shoulder man bag (what would Indy call that? I don’t know), and I found a couple other cool Indiana Jones Crafts around the internet to share with you.

Whip: First up, the DIY Indiana Jones Bullwhip made out of duct tape, by Skip to My Lou. (See at the top of the post) This one is semi-serious (as in, it could hurt people if used improperly), so save it for the bigger boys. If you have little boys (or girls) who want a whip, try this one:

Play Whip: This whip by Pin and Paper is made of flannel fabric, and is softer and more appropriate for pre-schoolers! Instructions for play whip here, found via One Pretty Thing.

Satchel: Oh, satchel is a more manly name for it! I made this Indiana Jones satchel out of a panel of a leather skirt (thrifted). It came together in about 15 minutes. Instructions for how to make an Indiana Jones bag are at my other site, Dollar Store Crafts.

Hat: These felt hats are amazing! They were made by Anjanette at Roots and Wings Co. and she made up the pattern herself! I wish she would share the pattern! Go check out her amazing Lego Indiana Jones Party and comment to beg for instructions!
