Superhero Handprint Coasters - a fun gift idea for a superdad!

Help the kids make their own handmade superhero coasters for dad this Father's Day to let him know he is their favourite superhero. Toddlers and preschoolers will love making superhero handprints and turning them into a useful handmade gift for dad. We made a spiderman handprint, hulk handprint, batman handprint and turtles handprint but this craft would work well for any superhero your child chooses. We even have a free printable gift tag that can be added saying 'You are my favourite superhero'.

Young children seem to love superheroes! If you have a toddler or preschooler that is a superhero fan make sure you take a look at our list of superhero crafts and activities. The superhero puppets are one of my favourite crafts as we have used the puppets so many times for so many activities. They encouraged my son to start reading more too!

If you are making these superhero handprint coasters as a handmade fathers day gift from the kids you might like to make a superhero card to go go with it! What dad wouldn't be thrilled to recieve a you are my favourite superhero card and matching handmade gift! 


To make the superhero handprints you will need:

  • paper or cardstock
  • Paint
  • Sharpies

Superhero Handprints 

Making the superhero handprints is really easy if you have an eager toddler or preschooler. Harry couldnt wait for us to turn his handprints into his favourite superheroes. I have added images of the superhero handprints we made below but for more details on how to make each of the handprints click on the images or links below. 

I would recommend making the handprints on cardstock over paper so you get a clearer print and you don't need to worry about the paper wrinkling. When making the handprints with your toddler or preschooler try to encourage them to open their fingers slightly and to press their hand firmly onto the cardstock.

How to make handmade handprint coasters

The best way that we found to turn our superhero art into coasters was to upload the images and send them of to a printing company. We used the truprint website and we were really pleased with the coasters we recieved from them. 

Once we had recieved our handmade handprint coasters we prepared to give them to dad as a Father's Day gift. To make the superhero coasters extra special we tied them together with a piece of string and added a gift tag that said 'Daddy, you are my favourite superhero.'
