Who is your favorite superhero?
Maybe you’re a Captain America fan or wish you had spider powers.
While superheroes are fun to watch in movies or read about in books, it can be even more fun to pretend to be your favorite superhero!
We know our friends at WinShape Camps for Boys at Cleveland LOVED to dress up as their favorite superheroes to help them prepare for Squad Wars every Thursday during summer 2016!
There’s no need to break the bank to get into the spirit of your favorite superhero — in fact, it only takes just a few household supplies and a few crafty items to make your very own superhero mask!
- Start by taking a paper plate and begin sketching a rough outline of the mask shape you want.
- Cut the plate into the desired shape.
- Paint the paper plate with whatever colors your superhero usually sports. This may take multiple coats to get the maximum color coverage.
- Hole punch one hole on each side of the mask and thread ribbon or string through to create ties to secure the mask.
- Go save the world!
We have included three templates you can use as an outline for your very own superhero masks!
Up up and away!
We used a bright red paint for the base coat, and sketched web lines using a pencil once the paint was dry. We finished by tracing the pencil lines with a black sharpie to make the web lines pop!
Pro tip: fold the paper plate in half when you cut to get the most symmetrical shape possible!

Feel free to get creative and make your own templates for other superheroes — or even create your own!
Know that in all situations, you have the opportunity to be like a fearless superhero through the power of Christ in us. Use His power — righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, gentleness, and so many more — to fight the good fight in all that you do.
“But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love,endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” 1 Timothy 6:11-12
