Looking for the perfect movie night activity while you and your fam watch your favorite heroes saving the day? We’ve got you covered! For this heroic craft project, we’ll show you how to create paper superhero crowns using nothing but paper! Brit Morin here, Founder and CEO of Brit + Co, mom to two creative kiddos, and avid paper crafter. I’ve teamed up with DQ® to share some of my favorite kid-friendly projects — perfect for making before, during or after watching a flick with the fam.
Armed with a stack of brightly colored construction paper and card stock, I’m here to show you how to make a fancy paper crown, fit for even the littlest superhero. It’s the perfect activity to do before or even during your next movie night.
Materials and tools:
- Construction paper
- Metallic paper
- Card stock
- Glue stick
- Glitter glue
1. Have your kid pick their favorite color paper. Begin by drawing the front shape of your crown on the color they picked.
2. Cut the shape out. Then cut a strip of paper using the same color extend the edges of the crown so fits perfectly on your kid’s head.
3. Work with your kiddo to cut a few shapes out to attach to the crown. Trace stars and lightning bolts! Cut out stripes and accordion fold them to create pop-out dimension.
4. Use hot glue or a stapler to attach the two ends of the crown together. Ta-dah!
Who doesn’t feel like a total boss wearing a crown? Maybe this is something we grown-ups should incorporate into our video calls! ;)
We featured a planet Earth crown, lighting bolt crown and star crown, but you can choose any design you like. Have fun with this project and don’t be surprised when your little one requests a crown for every movie night.
