My kids are ALL into superheroes right now. I have on that alternates between Superman and Spiderman pajamas and if both are unavailable…watch out! We’re chugging along in the school year and most weeks have some sort of unit or theme idea, but I’m all for doing what they are interested in learning about!
Here are some fun ways we’ve found to incorporate superheroes!
Superhero arts and crafts
We did this one around Father’s Day and it was a hit. They asked to do it again so we made some cards to send over to our friends! Check out the original craft article I found here! Check out some other fun preschool superhero crafts!
These cards are also fantastic for early writing! Your child can practice writing his name, or writing a simple message to whoever the card is going to!
Ten frame Superhero counting
Grab this ten frame printable here. You can either print multiple, laminate it or put it in a plastic sleeve and use dry-erase markers so you can reuse it. Put a number in the box under the mistake and have your preschooler fill-up the frame with the correct number. Check out this quick video of me using this with one of my boys!
Additionally, you can have your child work backward, by putting an assortment of markers on the ten frame. Have them count, and write the correct number in the box below the mask. You can use any small object for the ten frames. We used some manipulatives we found on Amazon.
Lately, the kids have been begging for me to read Superhero Baby multiple times a day! This book is way too cute and so much fun! If your kiddos love superheroes as much as mine, check out these fantastic books!
This was a fun one and involves minimal prep. I quickly drew (and I am a terrible artist) a cape on a piece of paper and told them to decorate their own cape. You could give them markers, stickers, daubers, whatever you want.
Want to spice it up? This takes a bit more prep but you can draw shapes on the cape. And either have some shapes pre-cut out for them, have them cut out, find items around the house, etc and have them match the item to the cape shape!
Superhero X-Ray vision:
Grab some lunch bags, lunch box or anything closed and not see-through. Fill it with some of your kids’ favorite foods, apples, bananas, fruit snacks, etc. Then have them use their X-Ray vision to guess what’s inside of it!
