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!
