How To Make A Super Dad Gift
Here’s a short video so you can see the superhero craft in action and how we made it. Full written instructions are below and the template is available at the bottom. Have fun!
Step 1 – Print your superhero craft template (See bottom of post) and colour it in. I find it much easier for children to colour it before cutting it out. We used pencil crayons but you could use paint or felt marker pens if you prefer.
Step 2 – We think it’s fun to decorate the face and hair to match your dad’s.
Step 3 – Write your own personal message in the box provided.
Step 4 – Carefully cut out all of the Father’s Day craft pieces.
Step 5 – To make your flying superhero turn the back of your Super Dad piece over. Draw a line of glue around its edge avoiding the middle and the bottom edge. Attach the front of the Super Dad. You want to make a little closed top tube to put the straw in.
Step 6 – Add a dab of glue to the neck line corners of the superhero cape. Fold them over Super Dad’s shoulders and push into place.
Step 7 – Flip your Superhero craft over and glue your special message onto the back of the cape.
Step 8 – Insert a flexible drinking straw into the superhero. Blow and watch your superhero craft whizz through the air!
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s SUPER DAD!
This interactive superhero craft is such a fun Father’s Day gift idea. Every dad will love to know you think of them as your superhero!
