Make Your Own Superhero!

Updated: Aug 13

Making a superhero with notebook paper is a great activity for older preschool age children, and school age children to be creative and use their imagination! Older preschoolers are starting to work on fine motor skills like holding the markers or crayons. Parental help will be needed when using the scissors and glue. School age children are able to complete this activity independently! They can also write all about their superhero characteristics! Each superhero will be out of this world, individualized and unique for each child!


What you need:

  • Notebook paper

  • Colored paper (Different colors)

  • Scissors

  • Markers, colored pencils, or crayons

  • Black marker

  • Glue (Glue stick/Regular Glue)

Instructions:

First gather all your supplies

Next take your scissors and cut out a circle from notebook paper (You could trace a circle onto the paper before you begin to cut)


Then take your scissors and cut out two squares from notebook paper (You could also cut out a rectangle from the notebook paper, fold it in half, and then take your scissors and cut on the folded line)

Take your scissors and cut out a triangle from notebook paper









Next pick out your piece of colored paper

Place the circle near the top of the paper, toward the right side of the paper

Then place a square underneath the circle, leaving a gap

Next place the other square underneath the square, leaving a gap

Place the top of the triangle underneath the top square

Color the triangle which becomes the cape






Then glue each shape down to the colored piece of paper

Next cut out a rectangle from notebook paper that is wider than the circle, then color the rectangle, then glue the rectangle onto the circle to make the face mask

Then draw on some eyes, nose, mouth, arms, hands, and hair

Write the alphabet letter your name starts with on the top square

Lastly on a separate piece of paper write the superhero name, superpower, weaknesses, and sidekick then glue on the back of the colored paper with your superhero
