superhero craft made from craft sticks


When The Avengers came out and was all the rage, I thought it would be fun to create something your kids could make. We all know how important reading is, so bookmarks with some of their favorite Avenger superheroes on them is just the ticket. That’s when I made these Avengers Bookmarks.

How to make Avengers Bookmarks

To get started, grab a few jumbo craft sticks and a pencil. You can freehand the characters, or use the pattern provided down in the printable instructions.

You’ll want to paint certain areas first on each superhero. 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.

Once 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 ballpoint 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.
