Avengers Bookmarks Craft for Kids

Avengers Bookmarks Craft for Kids

When Hunger Games came out, I neglected to make any crafts to celebrate its opening. So now that The Avengers is all the rage, I thought it would be fun to create something your kids, especially the boys, could make. We all know how important reading is, so bookmarks with some of their favorite Avenger super heroes on them is just the ticket.

Avengers Bookmarks Craft for KidsThe Avengers have quite a few super heroes, these bookmarks include The Hulk, Captain America and Iron Man. Get creative and make more of The Avenger super heroes!

Avengers Bookmarks Craft for KidsTo get started grab a few jumbo craft sticks and a pencil. You can free hand the characters, or use the pattern provided down in the printable instructions.

I used Craft Smart paint, which is great for kid’s crafts and is available at Michael’s. The colors that I used are Bright Red, Gold, Grass Green, Purple, Bright Blue, Coral, White, Black.

Avengers Bookmarks Craft for KidsYou’ll want to paint certain areas first on each super hero. For Iron Man, paint the gold sections, on The Hulk paint the green, and on Captain American paint the peach and the white section where the red & white stripes go.

After those have dried, paint the purple on The Hulk and the black for his hair. Paint the red stripes on Captain America, and paint the red section and the red helmet piece on Iron Man. Once Captain America’s stripes have dried, paint the blue areas.

Avengers Bookmarks Craft for KidsOnce all of that dries, use a white paint pen to add the following:

The Hulk – mouth and eyes
Iron Man – Unibeam (circle) and eyes
Captain America – Star, “A” on helmet and eyes

Use a black Sharpie to add The Hulk’s eyebrows and pupils. A ball point pen works well for the mouth outline and the teeth. A black Sharpie can be used to add Iron Man’s mouth and Captain America’s pupils.

Let everything dry well. Add a coat of paintable sealer or Mod Podge to give them a protective coating. Let dry overnight before using in a book.
