Superhero Mask-erade

When my (about to be 5) niece mentioned that she wanted "boy stuff" for her birthday this year, I jumped with both feet into a project for her.  While I take issue with her assertion that superheros and comic book stuff is "boy stuff", I relished this little project  because it was just so much fun.  Also - - because I have loved superhero stuff since I was a kid too.

Sidebar:  Did anyone else watch Superman so many times growing up that they know what this line is referring to?:

I like pink very much, Lois.
Anyway, so boy stuff.  Superhero stuff.  What have you.  I had been sitting on this pin for a little while because I was planning on making these for my own kids (which . . . once they test-drove these for me after I finished them, I'm pretty sure it is mandatory that I do now).  They are so so so very easy and fun to make (which, if you don't have lots of time - hello, you me with the 3 kids who sometimes feel like there are 15 of them).

Superhero Masks


The payoff when the kids get their hands on them is the best too.  :)

I didn't have any flesh-y colored felt on hand, so I left off Thor.  Little did I know that Thor is her *favorite* and she is planning on being him for Halloween.  :P

Superhero Masks with Book


I tossed in a giant superhero sticker book for good measure . . . because what kid doesn't love stickers?

The masks went over much better than the Wookie Bunny.  Thank goodness.  I still feel bad for that poor thing.



**If you missed the Superman reference above, he's talking about underwear.  Lois's pink underwear.  Which he can see through her dress.  Aye chee mama.

@Kathy - I knew you would love these! The kids had a great time with them at the party. I'm sure they would be a hit for any kid who likes to play superheroes OR dressup!
