Popsicle Stick Superhero’s




About: I work in the mental health field as a community based clinician in both outpatient setting and mobile crisis. I also have a duel career in health and wellness doing massage and personal exercise training. ...

Today we are making popsicle stick superhero’s. This is by no means an original idea but one worth sharing on instructables.com

I did this today as part of a Superhero Therapy group. What you can do is limited only by your imagination. I did no licensed properties today but there is no reason not to make your favorite superhero or any other hero you can come up with.


For this you will need:

-Craft sticks (popsicle sticks)
-brushes (or something else to apply paint)
-construction paper (or fabric or felt)
-your creativity
-googly eyes (optional)

Paint your sticks front, back and on the side. Start with one to three solid colors. You can add small details after.

Glue the capes in to one side and the mask on to to the other.

    You can dress them up anyway. could use foam board or actual fabric for the capes. Plush different shapes. I made a Batman one with the kids and he had a sleeker perferated at the bottom cape.

    Thanks. You can really embellish them with fabric or felt or foam too.

    They are not that aerodynamic. But could make some modification to make them projectiles. If you make that into an instructable let me know!
