What you will need to make them:

- Electrical tape
- Bubble wrap (small bubbles)
- A friend
- Find a pair of gloves that fit your hand snug. Use the scissors to cut the finger and thumbs out to just below the middle knuckle. Make sure the gloves come to just beneath your worst bone. Do not use mittens for this.
- Use the scissors again to cut a piece of bubble wrap. The bubble wrap should be wide enough to fully cover your knuckles and wrap around your hand no less than four times.
- Have your friend use the electrical tape to tape the bubble wrap in place. Tape only the inside part of the palm. Make sure the tape is smooth and flat as not to cause injury with an open palm.
