  • 2. Craft glue
  • 3. Sharpie
  • 4. Pencil

Instructions

Step 1:

Select a colored craft paper for the skin tone of the Superman puppet and then select blue, red, black and yellow colored craft papers for the rest of the patterns.

Trace the body base and arm patterns on blue colored paper; trace the belt and logo base on yellow colored paper; trace the cape, shoes and pant patterns on red colored craft paper; and trace the head and hand patterns on the paper selected for the skin and the hair pattern on black or dark brown paper.

Cut out the traced patterns using scissors. I always encourage my kids to do this part to improve their hand eye coordination.

Step 2:

Glue the hand cutouts to the arm cutouts and the shoe pieces to the bottom ends of the body base pattern.

Cut a slit along the yellow marked line inside the hair pattern; slide the top end of the head cutout under the slit to attach the hair pattern with the head cutout.

Step 3:

Attach the belt and the trouser pattern cutouts to the body base pattern.

Step 4:

Trim the both sides of the belt and the trouser patterns if necessary to make them fit.

Attach the arm patterns on both sides of the body base pattern.

Things you can do with your Superman Paper Craft

You can stick a popsicle stick on the back of these and use them as puppets for story telling or pretend play. The addition of a popsicle stick also enables you to use this as a cool bookmark. If you want a small corner bookmark instead you might want to make my Avengers craft instead

Why not stick these onto the front of a Birthday card or even a Father’s Day card for your Superhero Dad. If you need a special card for Dad this year you can always make my Dinosaur Pop Up Card

Another great idea is to stick a magnet on the back and attach these to your fridge.
