Construction Crusaders!

It’s been raining a lot in Atlanta lately, and we were looking for a quick craft that could be done on a rainy day.  So, just like you did when you were a kid, we decided to make some superheroes of construction paper!

1. Here’s the template we made, which you’re welcome to download and use:

  • Cut out one head, body cape and cowl or domino mask (for secret identity of course!), one utility belt and one mouth
  • Cut out two hands, two eyes and two feet
  • Cut out four arms

2.After cutting the pieces out of construction paper, we used a glue stick to glue everything together.  We didn’t have any construction paper that was the flesh tone we wanted, so we took white construction paper and colored it with a colored pencil. We made Batman and Huntress!

  • Starting with the body, glue on the head
  • Glue the arms on in a heroic pose of your choice
  • Glue the cowl or domino mask onto the head
  • Glue the eyes on top of the cowl, and use a Sharpie to give the eyes pupils
  • Glue on the utility belt, and use a pen to draw on the pouches
  • Glue the hands on the ends of the arms
  • Glue on the feet
  • Glue the cape on the back of the body

That’s it! Enjoy your construction crusader, and maybe by the time you’re done, the rain will be gone!
