Avengers for a Day

Marvel

Avengers! It’s time to assemble! Get ready to spend the day just like Captain America, Thor, and Spider-Man. With this activity guide, kids can get a little taste of what it feels like to be a superhero for the day — uniform included. Don’t worry, you’ll be done defending truth and justice by bedtime!

A Message From Nick Fury

Cutesy Crafts

You’ve been called by S.H.I.E.L.D., but before you make your way to headquarters, you’ve got a few important decisions to make. Which superhero do you want to be for the day? Suit up as Ironman, Black Widow, Hulk, Spider-Man, or your favorite Marvel superhero with these felt masks

Official Intel

Once you’re suited up and ready to go, it's time to get an official briefing. Dim the lights, find the perfect seat on the couch and watch The Avengers get to work. Luckily for you, there is no shortage of Marvel content on the Disney+ app. Pick your favorite Marvel movie, start with Phase One, watch them in chronological order, or check out one Marvel superfan's curated MCU movie binge playlist. If you’re a seasoned pro and want to relive the ultimate highpoint of the series, I would definitely suggest rewatching Avengers: Infinity War — it’s much less stressful the second time around, I promise.

Time For a Shawarma Break

Take a break from all of the action — but don’t think about moving before those post-credit stingers — and give yourself a chance to refuel. To keep the hype up, go over to Spotify and hit play on this Marvel playlist, which features theme songs for every main character. It will be sure to keep your motivation up as you devise a plan to fight Thanos and find the Infinity Stones. 

All right, back to the snacks. Test your worth (and strength) and see if you can measure up to Thor with these bite-sized hammer pops. If the hammer isn’t budging, refuel with some Black Panther Vibranium popcorn. Still need more fuel before the next mission? Check out these Infinity Stone cupcakes. They might be a little intricate to make, but who knows, maybe you’ll be able to save everyone from the Snap by just eating all of the infinity stone. It’s definitely worth a shot!

An Upgrade From Mr. Stark

Before you head back to watch the next movie, you may want to check your messages, as it looks like you have an incoming notification from Mr. Stark himself. He's sent over some classified material regarding new superhero cuffs for your suit upgrade. He says the cuffs can pretty much do anything you want them to. You can tell them to shoot out webs like Spider-Man, or make you grow or shrink like Ant-Man. The choice is yours.

Hey, Let's Make Stuff

It’s time for the final showdown. Buckle in and get ready to finish the wild ride that is Avengers: Endgame, or stay frosty with these printable activities while your favorite Avenger movies play in the background. Check out the word scramble and see how many Avengers you can find or just go with the coloring pages and give some of the Avengers uniforms a makeover (between me and you, some of them definitely need it!).

We Are Groot!

Time to relax and refuel with a craft break. Make your very own version of the Infinity Gauntlet to ensure Thanos can never get his hands on the stones again. To make your very own version, you’ll need some gold card stock and a few plastic gems. 

If you are inspired by the movies and want to start reading the comics, you are probably going to want to craft these Avengers bookmarks. The nifty popsicle stick bookmarks will keep your place in the comic books no matter how deep you are diving into the stories. 

If you haven’t picked a favorite Avenger by now, might I suggest Groot? This unusual superhero always shows up right where you need him and is extra fun, even in paper plate form. To make Groot out of a paper plate, paint a paper plate brown and use construction paper and markers to fill in the details. 

Prepare for Phase Four

The work of an Avenger doesn’t stop just because the movies are over. See how you can recreate some of the teamwork of the Avengers with the LEGO Avengers Ultimate Quinjet. If you want to make a good impression on Stark Industries, you are going to want to check out the Avengers Hero Inventor Kit. It will be a great tool to keep in your back pocket for your future with the Avengers.
