Father's Day Super Hero Comic Book Picture Frame

Fathers, stop reading this post and step out of the room!  (Are they gone?  Good!) Now that they've left, let's talk Father's Day Crafts. Is there a guy in your life who is a super dad?  Um hmm..  Thought so.  And would you and the kids like to make him an awesome gift?  Yup.  Thought so too.  Well, you came to the right place.  My son and I L-O-V-E super hero crafts and recently whipped up this super hero comic inspired frame to give my husband for Father's Day.

(Shhh! Don't tell him!)

Cheap, Easy, and Creative Super Hero Party Ideas

A couple of weeks ago my son graduated from preschool.  I didn't think I would get emotional... but I did.  I felt kinda sad-happy realizing that he wasn't a baby anymore.  Oh boy, I'm starting to feel a bit emotional right now.  Yeesh... must.. toughen.. up.... Ahem.  Anyway, back to introducing today's post...

Our preschool celebrated with a super hero themed graduation party.  All the moms and dads came together to plan a really fun day for the kids. I was so impressed by everyone's creativity.  I just had to share the super hero-themed activities and crafts here because I know a ton of you probably have super hero loving kids at home too.

So put on your super hero capes and get ready for some...

Make a Knight Sword and Shield

Do knights, dragons, and castles stir up your child’s imagination?  I love how my preschooler is a big fan of all these things.   It's so neat to see little kids wrapped up in imaginary play.  To further grow his interest, I made this super easy cardboard shield and sword set awhile back.  After 6 months of intense imagining, rescuing, and fighting, they're still intact.  So, I figured I'd share this cute tried-and-true craft with y'all today!

Avengers Paper Plate Masks

One of the neatest things about being a mom is seeing my son bond with my husband.  Right now they both share a love for all things Lego and Super Hero.  While I enjoy Lego, I'm not a big super hero fan.  But I still tried to incorporate it into our crafting time as well.  Here are some Avengers Paper Plate Masks that we recently made together!

No-Sew Cloth Super Hero dolls!

Lately, my preschooler has really gotten into super heroes.   I find this pretty funny because we never watch any super hero shows on tv... yet somehow he knows characters like Batman, Wolvarine, Super Man, and Spiderman!  (Weird, right?)  So today I wanted to share this really easy, no-sew cloth super hero doll tutorial.  This quick and simple craft doesn't need any special items and you can make your very own dolls within minutes!

And if your kid loves super heroes too.... be sure to check out my other Super Hero Crafts!

Crayon Hugger Cards

This past week Chuck attended his friends' (twin boys) birthday party.   I was all set to have him cards for them.... but then we totally ran out of time.  (Does that ever happen to you?  It happens to me all. the. time.)  So the morning of the party, I came up with this really, really, REALLY easy set of birthday cards for the two boys.

Inspired by Lia Griffith's super cute Valentine's Candy Huggers (which by the way, you should totally check out because she includes free templates for them), I doodled up some crayon hugger cards.

DIY Bat Signal!

Does your child love superheros?  We've officially entered the superhero phase!  Yay!  Chuck was Super Man for Halloween.  Now he constantly requests to wear his favorite Batman shirt... with a clip on tie (go figure) and requests superhero books from the library.  I really wanted to encourage his imagination with a fun superhero craft, but wasn't sure what I could easily (and cheaply) make.

Awhile back I made him a no-sew Superhero cape that he still wears around the house.  But after remembering that I had a bunch of red contact paper lying around, I realized that I could also make him a DIY Bat Signal too!

DIY Bat Signal!  Ka pow!

5 Ways to Write Secret Messages

As a kid, I loved the idea of being a detective or a secret spy.  They got to wear cool clothes, go on adventures, and solve mysteries.  A couple of weeks ago I tried playing a detective game with Chuck.  I hid his favorite stuffed pig and then left 5 clues for him to follow.  The clues were all written as secret messages.  We had to do something to the paper to revel the hidden words.

Chuck was onboard with the game.   We've recently been gobbling up Nate the Great books from the library, so he really enjoyed being a detective and solving the case.

No Sew Super Hero Cape

I don't sew.  I tried, but it just never happened.  (And since we're disclosing dirty, crafty secrets, I'll also admit that I don't crochet and I'm a terrible knitter.)  Last week we saw a boy wearing a cape in the park.  Chuck loved it so much that he asked me to make him a cape too.  That's when I thought, "Uh oh.  I'm a terrible sewer... that might be a problem."  But then I thought about it and came up with this ridiculously easy, super quick, crazy cheap, no sew super hero cape.

This cape took only a couple of minutes to make... which was awesome because Chuck and piggy were too excited and trying their very best to wait patiently.   I almost didn't post this tutorial because it was ridiculously easy.  But the photos of Chuck wearing the cape were too cute to not share.  Let's get making!
