We’re a superhero kind of family. My kids love to read about them, watch them, and, of course, pretend to be them! We’ve got an enormous bin full of superhero dress up clothes in their room so it’s never a surprise when Batman or Captain America shows up for dinner. That’s why, when I saw the HID Card Labels over at OnlineLabels.com, I knew that I wanted to turn them into superhero identification badges for kids. Fun for everyday imaginative play or for a special occasion such as a birthday party. Who wouldn’t love to fill out their own superhero ID badge?!
To make these badges, all you need is a sheet of ID labels from OnlineLabels.com and the free printable file found below. If you really want to make your id badges stand out, order some of the labels in clear gloss as well to go over the badges once the child has filled it out. Even superheroes need to protect the ID cards!
Once the file has been printed on the labels, just have the kids fill out all the spaces found on the badge. There’s a blank section that the child can either draw his or her likeness or you could go all out and print their photographs to glue in this space. Totally up to you and your free time.
The final pièce de résistance was the addition of the protective plastic covering once my son had filled in all the spaces. He was so excited to add this final piece!
You can either buy some inexpensive clips to attach the ID badges to your kids costumes or, if you’re short on time, just use a piece of ribbon to tie around their neck. We doubled the fun of making these superhero badges by sticking two the labels together and filling out both sides. Now the kids can choose which superhero they feel like being on any given day. Hope you all enjoy making these as much as we did!
