It's almost here! The movie my family and I have been waiting patiently for for the last three years for: MARVEL's The Avengers: Age of Ultron!!! As you know, we are HUGE Marvel fans in our home and we are ready for the movie's release on Friday, May 1st. Actually, we will be watching the movie on our cruise!! While we have been waiting for the second movie, we have been playing with our action figures, watching and re-watching The Avengers and creating fun crafts like these DIY Avengers Masks!
I first made these masks for Adrian's 6th birthday party and decided that they needed a reboot now that The Avengers: Age of Ultron is about to come out. This is an easy craft and so fun to make. You just need a couple items, kids and imagination.
DIY Avengers Masks
2 sheets of felt
(royal blue and white for Captain America, red and yellow for Iron-Man and dark green and black for Hulk)
Patterns (download here)
Let's start with Captain America! Place your pattern over the felt and trace with a sharpie. Cut around your tracing.
NOTE: These patterns are sized for 7-8 year olds.
Cut out an A from the white felt and glue to the middle of the Captain America mask. To measure the elastic: grab the elastic and wrap around the back of your child's head from temple to temple. Cut about 1/2 inch shorter than what you measured. (All kid's head sizes are different so I suggest you measure each child.)
Flip the mask around and glue the elastic to the edges right by the eye holes and VOILA! you have your mask! Told you it was easy!
Each mask is going to have different features. The Hulk mask is going to need a strip of black felt on top for hair and 2 smaller strips for eyebrows.
Iron Man is two separate patterns that need to be traced and cut out. Glue the yellow felt on top of the red felt.
Here are my Avengers in action sporting their new masks! Yes, even JC gets in on the fun!
I am loving all the new merchandise available in store. While I was at Walmart the other day, I picked up Avengers t-shirts for the boys and the Hulk and Iron-Man hands.
They also had the Avengers on the kids favorite treats. Of course, I bought them and they have been included in daily lunchbox packing!!
I have my very own Hulk and Iron-Man!
Of course, you can't buy giant hands and make superhero masks and not expect this:
I purchased all the supplies for the masks, the treats, shirts and giant hands at Walmart! Be on the lookout, The Avengers are all over the store!!
