If you are sick of the rain and every day being the ordinary, here is an idea that is simple, easy, and a lot of fun for your adventure seekers.
What you will need:
1 cape (tie, pin or use velcro on a blanky or piece of cloth. Or, using one of Dad’s old t-shirts cut off the sleeves and front (leaving the neck hole). All that is left of the shirt is the neck hole and the back flap of fabric. A perfect cape.)
1 bathing suit
1 pair of leggings/spandex/tights
1 belt accessorized with super hero logo (use felt or card stock to create logo)
1 mask (Cut two eye holes in felt or fabric. Stitch on elastic (use an old head elastic head band) or simply tie a longer piece of fabric around your child’s head.)
Assemble, decorate the accessories, and you have one totally awesome super hero to conquer your laundry piles or zap the weeds!!

Snacks to eat:
Lightning bolt carrots (cut carrots long ways with a crinkle cutter or add a few zig zags)
Super Hero Celery- stalks of celery with swiss cheese capes. Charge up the celery with dipping sauce.
Power to ya Smoothies- add your choice of fruit, yogurt, and ice. Mix away.
Super Hero’s are about helping others. Find ways around the house or outside to help mom, dad, or siblings. But make it fun!
For Example: Here’s a tip from my mom if you need to clean the kitchen floor: Barefoot or with shoes on allow your child to scrub the floor by skating around on wet rags. Rinse the rags periodically. A fun way to make your floor spick and span.
