Bam! Pow! Crash! The sound of a Superhero saving the world! Every caped crusader needs a shield to defeat evil! Help the Superhero in your life complete this super easy craft!

What you will need:

  • Cardboard large enough to cut out 2 circles (size optional). We use 2 circles of cardboard to strengthen the superhero shield.
  • Red craft paint & paint brush, scissors, elastic or string, craft glue. We used some glitter and glitter foam for our additional look.

Step 1

Cut 2 circles from the cardboard. We used a dinner plate for our circle templates, approximately 11” diameter. The size of the shield is optional depending on the size and preference of your little superhero. Paint one side of each of the superhero shield circles.

Allow Paint to dry and then make 4 small incisions in the cardboard circles that you will use for the back of your superhero craft shield. Cut 2 pieces of elastic or string, approximately 15 inches each for the 11” shield. Feed the elastic through the incisions and tie to secure. You have now made the arm straps for your superhero craft shield.

Step 2

Decorate one side of the shield however you like. You can use felt, glitter, or whatever comes to hand. Be creative and maybe add your little superhero’s name. The options are super endless.

Step 3

Place craft glue liberally on both the non-painted sides of the circle shield. Press together the back and front of the non-painted sides of your superhero shield. Wait until the glue has dried and the front and back of the shield are secure to each other.

It’s now time for your little superhero to create many super adventures.
