Challenge kids to write and draw their own comic strip! This fun activity makes a fabulous boredom buster, and can also be a valuable writing lesson. Kids who don’t love to write may really enjoy creating their own comic strip!
Print the templates from this post. It will be so much easier for elementary aged kids to make their own comic strip when the boxes are already drawn. These comic strip templates have a fun superhero theme, but I have also included some completely blank templates so that kids can write about any topic.
This FREE printable pack includes:
- 4 pages of superhero themed comic strip templates – choose either boy or girl images and different skin tones
- 2 pages of completely blank templates (no theme). One has a title box and the other does not.
- 4 story starter comic strip templates
Superhero Story Starters
My 2nd and 5th graders LOVED drawing comic strips! This is definitely a high-interest writing activity. Sometimes, though, kids may be really interested in writing a comic strip but may not know what to write about or how to get started, so I’ve included four story starter pages in this printable pack. The first box in each template has the beginning of an exciting story – kids can choose the story they like best!
My 2nd grader (entering 2nd grade in the fall) really loved this! He asked me how to spell several words and phrases, so I’m thinking that the next printable I’ll offer will be a superhero themed word bank/spelling guide. Leave me a comment if you could use something like that!
