If your kids’ favorite superhero is Batman and you want to pair a Batman book or movie with a fun activity or you’re looking for easy batman crafts for kids to celebrate Batman Day, this article is for you!
When my boys were little and they were going through the super hero phase I found it hard at times to connect with them. Batman and Superman didn’t interest me much, so playing superheroes was so boring to me.
Superhero crafts was where my boys and I could meet halfway and all have a good time.
My youngest was obsessed with Batman and because he’s so passionate about everything that interests him, we ended up making more Batman crafts than Spiderman crafts – my other son was into Spiderman.
Sometimes we managed to squeeze both superheroes into one crafting session, like we did with these superhero grass pots.
