DIY Superhero Town

Super heroes are the latest and greatest obsession around our house. It seems like for boys there is a predictable order of toy facination. At the age of 2, my oldest started with cowboys. He then moved on to fireman, army men, and now...super heroes.


2x4's in various sizes
Sander (optional)
Spray paint (red, green, blue, black)
Colored tape


1. Cut 2x4 in various lengths to create your superhero buildings. I sanded the boards and edges down.

2. Spray paint your "buildings" in different colors.

3. Cut colored tape in various sizes and adhere to "buildings." We chose to make ours different lengths and to display the "windows" in an uneven fashion. This is a comic book town.

4. Let your little one play and have fun with their new town. The great part is these blocks are stackable. Buildings can be as tall as you would like and the kids totally love knocking them all down!


  1. Love the great ideas. Especially all the "boy" stuff. You have a new follower. Came over from For the Kids Fridays.

  2. What a simple clever idea! Love it!! Visiting from Momma's Kinda Crafty
