Introduction: Tin Family

--Purchase (or find in your closet) grey sweatpants and sweatshirt.
--At hardware store, find flexible / expandable metal tubing.  Cut to fit on arms and legs, and tape edges with silver tape.
--Silver tape can be applied directly to clothes...just don't put it on too tightly, otherwise shirt and pants will be too small to fit.  Can fill with foam noodles, tightly packed newspaper, or even a very patient kid.
--Chest and back plates found at Home Depot.  Secure shoulders and sides together with flexible wire.
--Add silver face paint, funnel taped with silver tape, red lipstick, red felt hearts, and sliver beads for tin girls, and silver bowtie for tin boys.
