Spring break has sprung and since we aren’t going to Disney until tomorrow (will do a nice wrap-up on that, don’t you worry), the kids and I were stuck at home in some icky weather. So, it’s craft time!!
I’ve mentioned previously that I’m BAD at crafts. I don’t mean this in a self-depricating manner. I am seriously horrible at crafting. And yet, my kids love to do it. So, knowing I had to find something easy for a 4 and 2 year old that would also keep their interest, I googled Superhero crafts and found a few easy options that actually worked.
Thanks to other bloggers who are much more crafty than I, I found some really great options. Granted I ended up doing a lot of the work (um, sewing?), but the kids were happy painting and making a mess and playing with the final product. So, it’s a win in the end.
Avenger bookmarks from Crafts by Amanda – GREAT, easy, inexpensive supply list. The kids kind of painted their own thing and we didn’t use these as bookmarks, but they loved fighting with them when a few were done!
Next, we worked on Suphero capes on Lollipops from Little Bit Funky. I (as usual) did some short cuts and didn’t use the print-out/cut outs. We just did capes, punched a hole, and stuck them on lolls. My older guy wanted to create his own superhero, which was great. And the kids of course needed a lolly treat in the mix.
Last were our superhero masks, courtesy of Cutesy Crafts. I definitely did some serious shortcutting here – only one layer, and quickly sewed the elastic to the edges. Doesn’t look perfect but the kids wanted them fast and wore them the rest of the day, so I don’t think they minded.
Our finished products….
