Comic Book Day

I tried to post this last week, but blogger was acting up! The last week of September, the group had a comic book day. The kids got to dress up as their favorite superheros, and join us at the library for a fun craft day. I had homemade comic books for the kids to make, banners to celebrate a superhero, and fun coloring pages. For a snack I made funfetti cupcakes, with funfetti frosting, and then made candy stars in superhero colors with candy melts to top them with.

It was just a half hour before we had to be at the event that I came up with some fun ideas that I just wish I had thought of earlier! One was to build a "brick" wall with these Melissa and Doug blocks for our heroes to punch through! Another one was to draw a building side on a large sheet of paper, lay it on the floor, and tape a rope to the top on the floor. Then take a picture of your hero climbing up the side of a building!

 Super B hard at work
 Super L very happy with his pictures
 Their best superhero poses!
 L's comic book that he drew all by himself. He can even tell you a story with it. Very cool!

Books we read:
Charlie's Superhero Underpants by Paul Bright
Super Friends: Flying High by Random House

What I cute idea!

While we don't have a group quite like that...I think I can totally swipe the "create your own comic book" idea!

LOVE! :)
