22 Awesome Superhero Crafts

Ever since planning a joint superhero birthday party for my son and his almost-birthday-twin, I’ve had superhero crafts on the brain.

You could consider the list below a decorating and favor list for a superhero birthday party or just choose your favorite superhero crafts on this list to do yourself or with your kids on a rainy day. We’ve got superhero crafts for pretty much any skill- and age-level.

Some of these craft ideas do call for cutting up old comic books, which I know might upset some folks. My suggestion is to choose comics that are in bad shape – stained, torn, falling apart. I also always recommend doing a little research before cutting into any book, comic or otherwise. If you’d rather not cut up old comic books, don’t worry. We have plenty of projects that stay away from your prized collection.

  1. Thanks for linking to my Comic Book Dresser! What a cool list of comic projects! We did use old comics that already had torn pages or weren’t in great shape.
