Show your dad you think he’s a superhero with our Clothespin Super Dad Craft! He can then use the clothespins to hold together papers or as a bookmark. He could also use it to hold up his favorite picture with his trusty sidekick either along string or attach a magnet to the back.
This is another fun Father’s Day craft where you can make the superhero resemble your own dad. Use different color paper for the skin, pick your hair color and style, too. And while our superheroes are for Father’s Day, superheroes are such a great craft idea all year long!

To make our Clothespin Super Dad Craft you will need wood clothespins, assorted color markers, assorted color cardstock, 1.5” circle paper punch, small googly eyes, a glue stick, and scissors.
Clothespin Super Dad Craft
- Wood clothespins
- Markers – black, assorted colors
- Cardstock – brown, yellow, grey, assorted colors
- 1.5” circle paper punch
- Googly eyes, small
- Glue stick
Begin by coloring the clothespin.
You can use paint. We used markers instead, so there is no drying time and no mess. Plus, we already had our markers out. Color whatever color you’d like his superhero outfit to be.
Now, use a corresponding color of cardstock for the cape and mask. For this, simply cut a triangle from the cardstock and use the 1.5” punch to get a circle. This craft really uses nothing but your basic shapes!
Then trim out a strip just big enough for the eyes from the circle.
Adhere small googly eyes to the strip.
Also punch out the same size circle from the brown cardstock, or whatever color you’re using for skin, as well as hair color.
Glue the strip to the skin circle.
Cut the hair color piece in half. Then form in dad’s hairstyle. Or leave bald.
Now on the end that you pinch to open, adhere the head piece. And draw a simple mouth with the black marker. Also glue the cape to the back of the clothespin.
Now cut a small square out of another piece of cardstock. Turn it like a diamond and draw a D for dad.
And glue over the metal piece of the clothespin.
Your superheroes are ready for saving the day! Like any good dad does in so many little ways!
Circles, a triangle, and a square! Such a fun way to work on shapes, too, while celebrating dad! Be sure to check out more of our Father’s Day crafts at Our Kid Things!
