Superheroes & Heroines Workshop

May 31, 2011 at 5:36 pm Leave a comment

At the start of this workshop, I asked the kids to tell me what it meant to be a Superhero… I was a bit dismayed to hear them talk about how “they fight” and “use weapons”. It wasn’t until an older girl whispered in her little brothers’ ear that we talked about how “Superheroes help people in trouble”.

I grew up watching the Super Friends (1973-1986) who never seemed to use weapons against anyone. They even included safety/health tips, magic tricks, and craft segments during the later shows.

But I digress…. I suggested the kids start thinking about what their own super powers would be and then went off to make a mask, power bracelets, and a cape. When they finished, we put on our gear and sat down for a Superhero Story. We had lots of fun.  I was also very pleased to see several girls attend! 🙂
