If you're looking for a fun and quirky craft to try out at home, these easy superheroes made out of lollipop sticks could be your new favourite.
Most of us are looking for some crafts to do with the kids that don't require fancy craft materials and huge amounts of effort (we would love to all be the mums with endless time and craft supplies but we're just not, are we?).
These little lollipop stick superheroes are right up our street. They're super easy, fun and are made from leftover lollipop sticks as well as other materials you most likely already have at home.
We were inspired by this idea from the wonderful MakingLifeBlissful, and they could not be easier to make.
You will need (per superhero):
- 1 lollipop stick
- 1 muffin case
- Small googly eyes
- Star stickers (optional)
How to make easy superheroes out of lollipop sticks:
Draw the superhero costume onto the stick.
Use markers to draw a simple superhero costume on the stick, leaving roughly an inch and a half at the top. You can use the photo above as a guide for the shape of the costume, but you can choose whatever colours, design or stickers you like.
Add the hair and eyes.
Using another marker, draw the hair at the top of the lollipop stick. Glue on the small googly eyes under the hair, and draw on a smile.
Make the cape out of the muffin case.
Take a muffin case that matches your superhero's costume and fold it about a third of the way down. Glue it to the back of the lollipop stick so that it looks like a superhero cape.
And there you have it! A super cool, super easy superhero from MakingLifeBlissful. Using the same materials, there are endless possibilities, such as this beautiful ballerina:
With a little bit of creativity (and lollipop sticks) anything is possible!
