Look, it’s a ridiculously slow news week, ok? You’re probably home from work, in a house full of kids who have been out of school for two weeks, and there just isn’t a lot of news floating around the internet to keep you busy…. Or maybe that’s just me.
So, why not kill some time making some craft projects from Tron: Legacy? While Disney is fabulous at getting people to buy things related to their films that they absolutely do not need (I write, while looking at my Identity Disc toy), they’re also good at giving away free trinkets and craft projects to keep the mind busy. If you head to Disney’s Family.com page, you’ll find a whole host of easy-to-do craft projects, all related to the latest releases from Disney.
Why does this matter to us geeks? Why, because they have Tron: Legacy papercrafts. That’s right, you can make your very own paper Light Cycles and Recognizer.
But wait, there’s more! Also on the page you’ll find a fun game in the form of the Identity Disc Toss, the opportunity to make your own Tron Party Invitations, entertain the little ones with a Tron Coloring Page and the papercraft Tron Playset, and give slightly older kids a craft in the form of Tron Shrink Charms. If you want your experience with the Grid to be edible, they also have directions to make Tron Light Cycle Wheelie Pies and a Tron Light Cycle Cake. Finally, if you need some privacy to play with your new craft projects, they have a Tron Door Hanger.
It’s all ridiculously silly, but they also look like fun crafts for a snowed-in afternoon.
