Printable Superhero Puppet Craft (with Video)

| | | |

Years ago, I shared our Wonder Woman cuffs craft and so many families have enjoyed making that craft with their children, so I wanted to add another superhero craft to our collection: DC Superhero Popsicle Stick Puppets!

Kids can put on their own Superhero Puppet Shows after making this super simple DC Superhero Craft. Includes a free printable to make these Popsicle Stick Puppets

Superhero Puppet Craft

These superhero puppets are super easy to make thanks to our free printable template, which you can download below.

You could make these popsicle stick puppets as a gift, or make them with your children. (You may want to pre-cut out the pieces if making these with young children.)

I love these as a fun screen-free way to indulge your child’s superhero obsession. They can act out their favorite scenes from the comics or the movies, or make up their own fun superhero stories!

(You could even make our Shoebox Puppet Theatre to make their theatrical productions even more fun!)

These paper puppets are a cheap alternative to superhero figures, and you can adjust our template to make just about any super hero with a few simple alterations.

To make these popsicle stick puppets last even longer, you can laminate the paper puppets before gluing to your popsicle sticks. This will allow them to withstand more wear and tear. This is the laminator I use, and I just buy the super cheap packages of laminate sheets from Amazon. It costs about 13 cents a sheet to laminate which lets us get so much use out of any activity we print out.

For a fun personal twist, you can print out pictures your kids’ faces and use them in place of the superhero faces, like we did for our mermaid puppets.

These popsicle stick puppets would also make super cute Superhero bookmarks!

A simple step-by-step tutorial (plus free printable template) to make your own Wonder Woman Popsicle Stick Puppet

How to Make Popsicle Stick Superheroes

Let’s start our craft with the Wonder Woman paper-craft puppet. Select cream, blue, red, yellow and black craft papers for the Wonder Woman paper-craft. Trace the patterns on the selected craft papers as noted with each pattern. 

Cut a slit along the marked yellow line on the hair pattern. 

Insert the head part of the puppet base through the slit from the bottom side of the hair pattern. Apply glue on the back side to attach the paper hair pattern with the puppet base. 

Attach the boots, skirt and top patterns on the Wonder Woman puppet base. 

Attach the crown on the hair part of the puppet.

Attach the rest of the patterns on the puppet to complete the Wonder Woman paper-craft puppet. Use a black sharpie to draw the eyes, nose and mouth of the puppet. 

Attach the Wonder Woman paper-craft on a popsicle stick. 

Similarly, craft the rest of the DC Superhero characters.
