SUPER CUTE (AND SUPER GREEN) ADVENTURE BELT
This idea came from Our Big Earth. I love how the "dad of the house" got involved in the crafting process and came up with this adventure/tool belt. Your little guy can fill it with his favorite tools or use it as his collect all for pebbles (rather than his pants pocket - amen!). Made out of recyclables and duct tape, both of which most people have on hand! The tut can be found here. And while you are over there, check out their very creative, very awesome Space Robot tutorial! Wow.
Here is another great costume/dress-up idea for our little men - Body Armor from Some of a Kind. Great for role playing out in the back yard. There are also great tuts for a shield and sword to complete the look.
