Your Superhero Fans Will Love These Cute Crafts
Do your kids love superheroes? If so, you’re going to LOVE these frugal and fun crafts.
Superhero characters are popular figures for kids of all ages. These types of figures have supernatural powers that are appealing for a variety of reasons.
It can be fun to fantasize about having super powers! When you let your imagination go, the ability to fly or have extreme strength opens up so many possibilities. And the biggest bonus would be the ability to help people in need.
Over the years, my 5 boys have been enthusiastic about superheroes. They read books, watch movies, and have toys to act out all the amazing adventures.
In the past year or so, my boys have also really got into perler beads. They love using these small plastic beads (also called Hama beads, fuse beads, or melty beads) to make all sorts of cute creatures, critters, and characters. The boys turn these DIY creations into little toys, keychains, and adorable decor.
Of course, I wanted to combine these interests into some fun activities that we can use in a variety of ways. The boys have been busy using these printable patterns of superhero perler beads (and our other free patterns, like Minecraft, Pokemon, and Super Mario) to create awesome crafts. Some different ways to use these superhero crafts are:
- Superhero party
- rainy day fun
- brain breaks
- boredom busters
- library craft
- templates for other fun crafts
- frugal gifts
- just because

How to Create and Enjoy This Type of Perler Bead Art
To make it easy on your and your kids to create these superhero perler bead crafts, I recommend have all your supplies ready and organized.
I bought a huge canister of perler beads and perler bead pegboards that attach (in case the boys want to make big characters!). Also, I got a plastic craft organizer so the boys could sort the perler beads by colors.
Some kids like to use perler beads tweezer tools. These tools are optional – my boys prefer using their fingers.
Place your perler bead creation on a flat surface.
The perler bead pegboards set that I purchased has reusable ironing paper. This paper is placed upon your completed creation.
You’ll need an iron to fuse your perler beads. I usually set my iron at a medium heat. When your iron is warm, press firmly on the ironing paper and slowly move around. I check the perler bead creation about every 30 seconds to see how well the beads are melting together.
As far as making these superhero perler bead crafts, I suggest going through each template and having your child pick a favorite one to start with. My boys cut out the perler bead pattern cards and placed next to their pegboards. They find it easier to make their crafts this way.
If you don’t have the exact colors, absolutely no worries! Use what you have and enjoy your special designs 😊
Creative Ways to Enjoy Superhero Perler Beads
Brainstorm ways to enjoy and share your superhero perler bead crafts.
Your children may want to start a collection of perler bead crafts. My boys put their crafts in their bedrooms, as well as decorate our bookcases with them.
You can also leave a space or hole near the top of your perler bead craft. Attach a key chain ring or loose binder ring. Use to hold your keys, decorate party gift bags (super cute gift tags!), and as party favors.
My boys also use their perler bead crafts for creative play. It’s so much fun watching them reenact different scenarios from one of their favorite video games.
