If I have time after my presentation with the kids, I do this quick project with them. Having these figure templates helps them get past whether or not they are good "draw-ers" and they can focus on the costume and ideas for the characters.
Each year I go to a number of schools, and often it has become a tradition with certain teachers that I come each year. My wife is an Elementary school teacher, which is partly what got me started doing this, but also what makes me appreciate how much it encourages the students.
Feel free to use these in anyway that you like, creating your own characters, or print them out for your kids to use. With templates like these, you're just limited to your imagination!

More cartoony than my typical style, but fun to change up proportions!
My more natural approach to superhero figures. I leave off the top of the head incase you want to draw some awesome heavy metal hair, or a wicked 90's ponytail on your character.
Here are my older templates so you don't have to go diggin' through my blog to find them.
