Well, as you know… we are very excited about the free Kodak Avengers printables  available out there.. we have already had a great session with little friends printing out lots of masks and then again making some superhero puppets as a playdate activity.

UPDATE: since this post was first written, Kodak has taken the printables down from their site. I still have a copy that I used to make my notes books – you can download them here: Avenger’s Notebook Printables

This week I decided to get crafty and decorate some little notebooks for Red Ted. As you may know, he started school for the VERY FIRST time this year and in Austria, new school starters get a Schultuete. As we live in the UK I made him a Schultute (see the Schultuete How To) and now had to fill it with goodies.

The idea is you fill it with sweets and stationary. We went all superhero on the stationary – Red Ted got a new Spiderman pencil case and a Spiderman water bottle. I then thought that the Kodak printables would be fabulous addition to his pack. They were so easy to make and I kid you not – a HUGE hit. The notebooks + a 10 coloured biro were his favourite items and he was using them both every day for a week. Result.

 

Materials: inexpensive notebooks (I found 4 for £1 in poundland), Kodak Avengers Printables, scissors and decoupage glue (I used mod podge)

1) Print your superheros and some name tags (they make for a good place for you child to add their name to the book)

2) Cut out. Add decoupage glue to the underneath.

3) Place on notebook and press firmly down. Then add another layer on top to give it a nice seal. Whilst drying, gently poke down any “ends that curl” up with a pair of scissors or similar.

4) Add the name tag on the inside and done.
Simple, no?

  1. What a great way to customize a journal! We would have to have Ruff Ruffman on JDaniel’s. He is not a superhero, but he is loved at my house.

    My little guy picked out Captain America for his Halloween Costume yesterday & doesn’t want to take it off…lol! I was wondering when he was going to enter that stage :) He wants to wear it to the park later too. I didn’t know about the free printables- awesome!

    Oh yes they are so handy for us mums with superhero mad kids!!!!

    Awesome. My little man isn’t too in to superhero’s yet. Although he does like wearing his SuperMan pjs and running around pointing at his tummy yelling “I’m THE Man!”. I should do something like this for my daughter though, she’d love the personalized touch.

  6. I love it – original notebooks

  7. good idea! very cute and lovely that he liked them so much!

    These Avenger printables are so cute but they aren’t available on the Kodak page any longer. Did you happen to save them? I’d really love them for my grandson. Thank you so much for reading my question! Dawn : )
