These popsicle stick superhero puppets are a great summer craft project for kids.

I love these little super hero stick puppets.  I made them for Marisol and Flynn to give to their friends at school as a Valentine's Day gift.

What you  need:

  • Wood stick people (available at craft stores)
  • Paint – in a variety of colors
  • No-sew fabric such as Spandex that doesn't fray
  • Silver glitter glue (optional if you want to add a sparkly buckle)

Begin by painting a super hero costume on your wood stick puppet.

Once you have finished painting both sides of your wood super hero, cut out a cape from the spandex.  I didn't measure, or use a stencil, I just took a wild guess and started cutting.  This is the basic shape I came up with though.

And there you have it, adorable super hero stick puppets; perfect for Valentine's Day or Friendship Day so kids can let their friends know they think they're super.

Don't forget a little gift tag if you are giving these out.  I found these little tags at Michael's in the $1 section this week and simply stamped a little message on them.

So glad I was able to remind you, normally I'm the one in need of reminding.  I have a tendency to leave things until the last minute normally :).
