Superhero Activities
*Created by Nancy Gillespie

1. Dress the Part: Trying on a Superman or Batman cape.

2. Create a Character: Drawing a picture of themselves as a superhero, including whether or not they can fly, the color and style of their costume, their special powers, and any symbol associated with their character.

3. Robin Tight Rope Walk: Children walk across a rope on the floor; can be straight across or curved.

4. More Powerful Than A Locomotive! Children see how many stuffed animals they can "rescue" (i.e. carry).

5. X-Ray Vision: Items in a cloth bag; children take turns guessing what they are.

Nancy also came up with some great Superhero mad libs, a matching game (superhero/secret identity; superhero/sidekick) and Superhero Twister!!
