Valentine Superhero Lollipops


This time every year, the stores are filled with the latest Valentines.  About 5 years ago, I decided to start the tradition to make all of our Valentines instead of buying them.  Especially having boys, this holiday is usually geared towards us girls, (hey I’m not complaining).   I make these super hero lollipops for my boys to take to school which usually ends up being a big hit with the boys AND girls.  All of the supplies are already in my house and it’s a lot to make than you may think. 

Here is what you need to make Super Hero Lollipops:

  • A bag of lollipops.  You can pick any lollipops you like. I like these because they are big enough for a mask and I don’t have to worry about little ones chocking on a tiny lollipop.  And truthfully, I end up eating half the bag. #win.
  • A few pieces construction paper.  
  • A glue stick
  • A pair of scissors
  • A pencil and marker
  • Tape

I first made the  cape.  I drew one then cut it out, but freehand it if you’re good like that.  I cut out a little heart in a different color and glued it on.  Then I cut out a mask.  Took a few tries at first to get it to look just right.  Add eyes with black marker to the mask.   I added a message on the cape.  I wrote, “you are a super friend” on the ones for the kiddos, but these also make a great treat for teachers and mama friends #spreadthelove.

Poke a hole with scissors at the top of the cape and slid the lollipop in.  I glued on the mask and added tape in the back to keep it secure while it dried.  And boom you’re done!  See, told you it was easy peasy!  I completed a half dozen in about 30 minutes.  And if you’re kids are cool with scissors and can help, or can help you assemble, you could probably tackle these even faster!  I liked changing out the colors for a variety.  My boys are are always wanting black and blue capes.  But I thought all the pink and purple ones were pretty cute.  Girls are super heroes too!
