Free Superhero Printables- Superhero Printable Bus and City Craft
This week’s Friday Freebie is a perfect craft for kids. It is all about my son’s favorite things: superheroes, cars, and knocking things over! I am sure he is no different than millions of other boys out there, dreaming of being a superhero and fighting supervillains! Given that there is a new Marvel superhero movie released every 2 minutes these days, superheroes are everywhere! This DIY craft all about brings the fun of superheroes into something homemade. Something that the kids will love, but doesn’t cost a bomb, and may provide hours of homemade entertainment. Today’s free superhero printables are a bus filled with your little one’s favorite superheroes (and driven by Batman) and a set of buildings for your superhero bus to knock down. This is a set that your little hero will surely love. If you’re not a crafter, worry not, all of the templates are included for free! All you need is a standard printer, some basic supplies and a little bit of time.
This craft was created using the Superhero clip art set from Creative Fabrica. If you are interested in adding to your superhero city or are having a superhero party want to create some decor the set is available for purchase individually or as a part of their monthly subscription bundles. Below the craft instructions, you will find some additional Superhero Party Printables available for download.
Kids can help in making this project but supervision of an adult is important especially when using sharp tools like a cutter.
Ready? Let’s gather the supplies now.
Superhero Printables – Supplies for Bus and Building Craft
Here is what you will need for this project:
- Superhero Bus and building printable templates
- Cardstock (You can print on regular printer paper, but the bus will be flimsy and not great for playing)
- Cutter or x-acto knife
Free Superhero Printables – Superhero Printable Bus Instructions
Step 1: Download and print the free template. Templates are available for download at the bottom of this post.
Step 2: Cut out the printable.
Step 3: Cut the wheels out using a cutter or x-acto knife. Trace along the broken red lines seen in the picture.
Step 4: Fold the lines. Make sure you make a proper crease so it stays folded when you glue it.
Step 5: Glue the flaps down to form the Bus.
That’s it. Your bus is now complete! Your finished bus should look like this
Free Superhero Printables – Printable Buildings Instructions

Step 2: Cut it out the template. Note – each building is made up for two pages.
Step 3: Fold the lines on the templates
Step 4: Glue page 1 and page 2 together, use the flap on page 1 to attach to page 2.
The printable should look like this after being glued together.

Well done, your bus and buildings are ready to go! You may have noticed within the building template there are three different colored buildings available. You can make a few different buildings colors available to enable you to build a minicity for your child to play. Kids love buses, and what could be cooler than a bus driven by Batman carrying all of his superhero mates!
I hope you have loved this set as much as I have. I am already thinking of ways to add to the collection, maybe a supervillain bus or cop cars or perhaps some different building types? The possibilities are endless. Let me know in the comments below what additions you would like made to the set. I would love to hear your ideas.

Free Superhero Printables – Superhero Themed birthday party
I didn’t make the bus for a birthday party, but I thought that it could be a super cool superhero birthday party favor box. I thought that you could leave the back flap of the bus unglued and maybe add a little piece of ribbon to it so it could be easily opened. You could also replace the word “Gotham” on the front of the bus with each child’s name.
I also thought that the set would make some charming table decorations or accents. What do you think? I hope you have enjoyed all of these superhero printables; I’d love to see what you create with the templates, please let me know via the comments below. Happy Crafting!
