We had a rainy Sunday last weekend – which was good for my garden and lawn – but put a damper on any outdoor creativity.

Fortunately, we have Father’s Day coming up soon (June 21st), so it gave me both the opportunity and excuse to go down to my little craft studio and putter.

Hubby and I went and saw the Avengers movie a few weeks ago (it was good, but I prefer X-Men if we’re going sci-fi), and ever since I’ve been tossing around the idea of incorporating super hero into a Father’s Day craft.

I started with Superman’s colours and puttered with shapes.

Finally think I’ve got it!

The triangles from Superman’s chest crest, but laid out differently.

Batman?

Cutting wings would have been too obvious, I want to go with the idea of superheroes without actually replicating their exact logo.

Not sure I nailed the Hulk though…

I was going for gradual transitioning.

Captain America was easy.

Finally, Ironman:

What do you think?

Think Daddy will understand that he’s our hero?

The shapes on these cards are very simple – rectangles, circles, triangles – so kids could easily replicate or create their own versions of these.

Now I need to come up with gift ideas to follow the theme?

Yikes!

Have a great one!
Too funny:  Should I tell him?
