They can make the playing board, and then spend hours challenging each other to a superhero battle of the wits. This is one of the simplest DIY board games for kids to make. Boys will especially love this superhero craft idea, and will have so much fun making this easy indoor kids' game. Kids love checkers, and they are sure to love it even more if Batman and Superman are involved.
