Have some Super Hero Super Fun with our 5 Super Hero activities and projects!

#1. Superhero Bookmarks

avengers bookmarksThese Avengers Bookmarks from Crafts by Amanda are made from some jumbo craft sticks and paint.

You can draw the characters free hand or there are printable instructions too.

Choose from The Hulk, Captain America and Iron Man or make all 3!

(and if you like other super heroes better, you can always adapt the instructions for your favourite Superhero)

#2. Superhero masks

Next up, make a cool superhero mask! We found 2 great places with easy instructions to make your masks.

The first is a set of 4 different supermask printables from Firstpalette.com.

All you have to do is download, print, colour, punch holes and add some elastic. 

Or if you want something a bit more substantial why not try this cute felt mask from Hazelnutgirl.

You'll need some felt and to do a bit of sewing but a great project for kids to practise sewing. (You can buy HeatnBond instead of the WonderUnder that is mentioned in the project, available from Craftersbasket.com in Sligo)

#3. Superhero cuffs

super hero cuffsMake yourself some superhero superpower cuffs out of some simple materials including a toilet paper roll, paint and glitter.

These easy instructions for fun super hero cuffs are on the No Time for Flashcards website.

And don’t forget to decide what superpower you have to magic into your cuffs! 

#4. Superhero identity card

Who is the real person behind your Superhero persona?!

Fill out our Superhero identity card so we can find out more about the powers you have and the villain you fight! 

#5. Superhero photo booth picture

Get the paints out and make yourself a Superhero cut out picture! Here's a cute example we found on Flikr (eatprayparty). 

We’re going to have lots of fun with this in a few weeks, so once you have created your Superhero cutout picture, put it aside along with the rest of these fun items that you made for a special project in a few weeks' time so watch this space for more fun to have with them!

 Craft making is thirsty work, so time for a glass of nice cool super milk!smiley
