The Superhero Craft Book is perfect for bringing your little superheros to life. The award winning Little Button diaries bloggers Laura Minter and Tia Williams do it again with another book of fabulous crafts.

First Impressions

I’ve reviewed Little Button Diaries craft books before, My Little Man has sailed away with The Pirate Craft Book and explored the outer realms with The Space Craft Book.

The Superhero Craft book has to my favourite yet. Who doesn’t have a child that wants to be a superhero? The book contains 15 projects to make and is aimed at children aged three and over. As before, the book is filled with bright glossy photos and easy to follow step-by-step instructions.

The Blurb

These pages have all the items your little superheroes will need to keep their secret identities hidden and help them save the day! Containing 15 super-themed projects to make, The Superhero Craft Book will get your little super-defenders crafting and creating in no time.

So suit up young caped crusaders, strap on  our utility belt and jet pack or don your cape and cowl and with the Superhero Craft book your little crime-fighters will be ready for any supervillain who comes their way!

I love this activity, my kids are big fans of story stones and here you can learn how to make your own superhero story stones and bag to keep them in.

My Verdict

Of course The Little Man just wants me to make everything. I’m not the craftiest of people, you won’t find me wallowing in glitter with a glue gun. But I do like helping my kids to make things, even if they never really turn out quite as fabulous as what other mum’s can produce. Having tried these books before I have to confess that some of the projects are beyond my talents, but it doesn’t mean I can’t have a try (and I’ve had a fair bit of success with the cakes!)

The crafts are intended for mums to make for their little superheroes. Fabulous additions to the dressing up box, or toy cupboard. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow and a lot of the stuff you need can be found around the house. However, I do tend to skip pass anything that requires a sewing machine. That’s just not my thing. A few things I really love in this book are, the superhero masks (yes, they require sewing by hand, but I can manage that,) the duck tape shield, and the bat night light. The latter may be a little over my skill set, but I really love it and so want to have a go. Also, on my to do list is the cake (you have to make the cake) and the supersonic car. The car, won’t, of course, look anything like the one in the book, but who can resist making things out of cardboard boxes?

These books always have some great ideas for parties and this one is no exception, kryptonite jelly anyone?

You can buy The Superhero Craft Book from the GMC Group for just £5.99

    What a lovely book for little ones, looks like you’ll have hours of fun with that! I can remember quite well having to save up cardboard tubes and boxes etc for crafty sessions 🙂

    I do miss those ‘crafty’ days Anne. Story stones work oh so well and getting the children involved is a big bonus.

    I love the images 🙂
