Are you ready to teach your kids how to make a superhero mask?! I’ve created these templates in association with Belling, helping families create tasty, nutritious meals since 1912.
Belling have been kind enough to develop this campaign to help you keep your kids entertained during the holiday period. You can print out cape templates for the kids to colour and even grab a recipe book jam-packed full of Superhero recipes!
Because Superheroes are often seen eating less-than-nutritious meals on-screen, Belling has created some healthy alternatives for your little heroes to stay healthy.
How To Make A Superhero Mask + 1 Printable Template
Before We Get Started, Have You Taken The Customised Craft Furniture Quiz?
When it comes to anything related to me, it has to be pastel or have the ability to fit into my colour palette.
It’s how I decorate, dress and it’s definitely a way of life. So, of course, I had to get girly on my Superhero masks. This is where we make girls the heroes.
Pro Tip: Use all of the resources from this post to host a superhero party with your kids. You could make superhero recipes, design capes and make some pretty fabulous masks.
Supplies Needed To Make A Superhero Mask:
- Mask Template
- Disappearing Marker
- Wide Packing or Tape (if you are using felt)
- Slice Precision Blade Cutter
- Felt, glitter card, any stiff material
- Aleene’s Tacky Glue
- Brush For Glue
How To Make A Superhero Mask:
Step 1: Print your mask template on white cardstock and use scissors to cut out the shapes. You will then need to use the Slice precision blade cutter to remove the eyes.
This was my first time using that craft knife and I found it much easier to use than standard x-acto blades!
Step 2: Gather the fabric you will use for your mask and use the disappearing marker that quilter’s use to mark out the shapes on the fabric.
If you are using felt that isn’t super stiff, you will need to either add packing tape to the back and trace the shapes onto the tape to cut Or something called Fusible Interfacing. Otherwise, you’ll have a floppy, fluffy, useless mask.
I cut out lots of different shapes in different materials so I could swap any and just piece the masks together.
Step 3: When you have pieced your masks together, use Aleene’s tacky glue to attach and allow ample time to dry.
Step 4: When the masks are drying, you can stretch the elastic around your kids heads to see how long it should be.
Cut the appropriate length and make sure that it isn’t too taught. You must measure from temple to temple, with a little stretch that will be comfortable on a head and won’t cut the ears or dig in.
When you are happy with the length of elastic, and your masks are dry, staple the elastic to the mid-section on each side.
Making superhero masks is so easy and I had so much fun. Me and my Gal pal here (the frame) felt so empowered when wearing these.
Staying at home with the kids for extended lengths of time, especially with the world we live in now. Having a fun activity you can do with your kids that could entertain them for hours to come.
Get Your Kids To Take It Further And Stretch Their Imagination
You could print out the masks and cape printable from Belling as well as that incredible recipe book packed full of nutritious treats. When decorating the masks and eating their snacks, they could use colouring pencils, watercolours, paint or even pasting paper shapes to decorate.
Belling makes everyday family life easier, from superhero capes to beautiful kitchen appliances. Every summer they host a marvellous event to the keep the kids busy when at home and this year is lots of fun!
Who doesn’t enjoy being a super hero?!
There are a lot of different supplies that they could use for different activities. You could also just use them as colouring pages, to begin with, if you don’t have time to teach them how to make a superhero mask with you.
