Turn war into peace by converting a children’s action figure into a peace-loving bookend. Or if you don’t have a soldier, try using an old space ranger (you know the one I’m thinking of) or any other large toy figure.

The technique for turning your action figure into a bookend is slightly dependent on the type of action figure you have and the thickness of the shelf – so please treat the instructions below as a guide, and be prepared to improvise if necessary.
