All parents ASSEMBLE! Every kid loves Superheroes! What’s not to love, right?! They are super strong and fly and shoot webs from their wrists and pretty much always defeat the bad guys. If you have a Superhero-obsessed little boy (or girl) then your child needs a Superhero Kit complete with everything he or she needs to be ready for some action!
If you know of a little hero in the making who is having a birthday then a Superhero Kit would be the ultimate gift!
So I bet you’re wondering what is in the box?
Every superhero-in-training needs a cape and mask and personalized Superhero T-shirt. And since it’s summer, a superhero must have his own personalized Marvel Superhero Towel to take to the beach or pool…
And, finally after a long day of saving the world and fighting bad guys – every little superhero likes to cuddle up with his own personalized Marvel Superhero Pillow and personalized Spiderman Throw Blanket…
Today, I’ll be showing you how to make a Superhero Kit. It’s super easy and will make YOU “super mom” in the eyes of your kids.

Once you have your cape cut out, then you will need to attach the Velcro to the neck. I used iron-on Velcro, but if you have time — it is better to attach them with a few stitches by hand (it’s sturdier over time).
The last step is to decorate the back! A quick search online for superhero emblems (Spider Man, Thor, Superman, etc) will yield lots of results or you can simply use a simple star and shield. Once you find one you like, print, cut it out in felt, and attach to the back of the cape using hot glue or a heavy duty spray glue.
Felt Superhero Mask
