We are back with more LEGO® mosaic building cards, and this time they have a superhero theme! Last month I posted animal building cards, and immediately thought of all kinds of ideas for more. Mosaics are really fun to build!
Just like the animal mosaics, kids can either build these superhero patterns from the photos in the post, or from the printable building cards that are available at the bottom of the page.
We’ve got both DC and Marvel designs. I may add more superhero designs if these seem to be popular!
The great thing about mosaics is that they are very flexible. Kids can create the exact same design that we built, but with different sizes of bricks. As long as they cover the same area, it will look the same! Also, encourage kids to modify the design or change the color scheme a little if they don’t have the exact bricks or colors shown.
After building these designs, they’ll probably want to come up with their own superhero patterns!
To build these, kids will need a good supply of basic bricks. No complicated pieces here!
All of the mosaics are built on 16 x 16 plates, but kids can also use the large baseplates. You can also connect two 8 x 16 plates to create a 16 x 16 surface for building.
I recommend printing the building cards on either good quality paper or card stock. I laminated ours for durability and put them on a ring.
If you’re planning to build these LEGO® superhero patterns with a class or group of kids, you may want to skip putting them on a ring – if they are separate, kids can easily grab which one they want.
Ready to build? Here are the superhero LEGO® patterns!
I have no idea which version of Batman this is, because I don’t keep up with the movies! But here you go. I think this one turned out pretty well!
Building the “A” and the star was challenging on this scale, but it’s definitely possible!
CAPTAIN AMERICA’S SHIELD
These two patterns look good side by side.
The hair can definitely be modified, depending on availability of black bricks.
If kids don’t have the light blue that is used in the eyes, they can easily substitute white.
My boys complained that Thor doesn’t have a beard, but the classic comic book version doesn’t! If your kids want him to look like Thor in the recent movies, they can add a beard. 🙂
Build the classic logo! Kids can also modify the Thor design to make Superman’s face. Leave off the helmet and build black hair instead of blonde.
THE INCREDIBLE HULK
I learned while completing this project that Hulk is a good guy. (Yes, I’m very superhero illiterate!) Interesting!
