DIY Super Hero Supply Kit

First off let me start by saying that I loved the way this turned out. This is going to be a Father's Day present for my dad since he is a superman FREAK!! He LOVES Superman, like I mean obsessed. He likes to consider himself Super Dad, so I decided to make my Super Dad a Super Hero Supply Kit. I seen this on alphamom.com. The FREE printable's can be found at that link. I was so excited to do this and again I love how it turned out. I filled it with all kind of treats that I just know my dad would love.

Printer & Paper (for the labels)
Wooden Box (found mine at Walmart for about $8)
Tape & Glue (i preferred tape)
Clear cellophane baggy's (I got a 40 pack for $1 at the Dollar Tree)
Snacks to fill bags (u can mix n match to fill with what you like)

 Check out this awesome wooden box I found in the craft section of Wal-Mart for 8 or 9 dollars. I love it!

Snacks consist of: Root Beer, Malted Milk Balls (aka Whoppers), Doritos, Slim Jims, M&Ms, Mentos (the chewy mint), Large Candy Bar, & Honey Bun. But you can change things out with whatever snacks you prefer.

The cellophane bags I got were actually loot bags found in the party section at the dollar tree, I just filled it with whatever I needed to and used tape to completely tape it closed.

1. First I picked snacks my dad would like & decided which label would represent each snack.
Hero Vitamin Pellets: M&Ms. 
Secret Identity Bar: King Size Chocolate Bar. 
Jerky: Slim Jims (my dad cant eat actual jerky so I assumed Slim Jim sticks would be easier to eat.) 
Hero Nosh: Honey Bun
Mints: Rainbow Mentos (my dad doesn't much like mints but I loved all the labels so I got Rainbow Mentos also known as "the chewy mint" & I think their fruity, he would like them much better then mints.)
Energy Chips: cool ranch Doritos.
X-Ray Vision Drops: Malted Milk Balls a.k.a. Whoppers (My dad loves these)
Hero Juice: A&W Root Beer (my dads favorite pop)

2. Next I cut out all the labels I printed. 

3. I started Labeling the empty bags, pop, candy bar, and box. I used tape to put the labels on the box so he could easily remove them and re-use the box for something else. 

I originally used glue stick to glue the labels to empty cellophane but once i filled them the labels started to pop off so I resorted to tape. 

I removed the label from the root beer and just stuck the new label on the white part that was left over on the bottle from the original label. I covered it in clear packaging tape to seal it on and make it waterproof.

I just taped the candy bar wrapper on top of the original wrapper.

4. Now its time to fill the backs with the snacks and tape the top of the bags closed.

YOUR DONE!! Now just fill the box with your bags of snacks and give it to that special super hero of yours!

I swear I love it, I know he's going to love it too. I hope you guys enjoy this!!!


  1. What a cute idea! I am sure he'll love it. Megan

    1. he did, we had to celebrate father's day yesterday because he works all weekend and I wouldn't see him, he literally was stunned. He thought I bought it he really loved it even more then i thought he would lol.

  2. Oh wow, I love this! I think my dad would like something like it too since he's a big Superman fan as well. Hmm...I wonder if I can find enough time to do this before Father's Day. I might have to wait for his birthday in August.


    1. picking & buying the supplies is the longest part. I thought it would be a long & hard project but once I had all the supplies together I sat down & had it done in about an hour. It was super simple & easy to make so i'm sure if you got the supplies together you definitely could have it done by fathers day! It's such an easy project and it turned out great! lol.
