Taking These Superhero Coloring Pages for Kids to Infinity and Beyond!
As always, you don’t want to let your child color their little coloring sheet in silence for too long. Correcting social isolation in a preschooler can be a challenging task, to say the least. With that in mind, our goal should always be to create a deeper connection with our babies. So how can we use superheroes to achieve that?
Well, for one, we can always use age-appropriate comic books and movies, as well as cartoons like The Powerpuff Girls, Teen Titans Go!, and Ultimate Spider-Man, among others. The key is to engage with our children, though, not just let them watch TV without talking. Ask them what’s happening on screen and how they would solve the situations the heroes are getting into. Similarly, you can ask them what’s happening on the coloring page they’re doing.
If you ever run out of things to discuss — which would be pretty impossible, in our experience — turn to the internet. You’ll find plenty of “would you rather” questions about superheroes on there. Or you can just make your own questions based on the illustrations we’ve collected:
- Would you rather shoot lasers out of your hands or be able to control water?
- Would you rather be able to fly or run so fast no one can see you?
- What would your superhero costume look like? Would you want to wear a mask and cape or not?
Speaking of your kids’ costumes, that’s another way to take this exercise into the real world. Create the outfit they envisioned for themselves by buying or making the pieces from scratch. Then you can take it out for a spin, for good measure. We’ve always thought that being on a swing set feels just like flying!
More Superhero Coloring Pages for Kids
If your toddlers are big fans of superheroes, they’ll probably work through our illustrations pretty quickly. Here are a few other sources you can use if that happens.
For instance, Cool2BKids has a coloring page for everyone. There are several cute versions of superheroes for young children as well as more serious images for kindergartners who are definitely not babies anymore. Similarly, Just Color and Coloring Home have plenty of printable sheets that look just like the comics! And the illustrations on Mom Junction are a pleasing middle ground between those two styles.
Lastly, we also wanted to mention the DC Super Hero Girls coloring pages from ColoringPages101. The superhero genre often feels like it’s just for boys — but we should do our best to include our daughters in this fantasy. And that’s the whole idea behind DC Super Hero Girls — letting girls see themselves reflected in comics and superhero shows.
