Your Kid Will Soar

Capes are where superheroes conceal their weapons and are a shield from villains. Have your child feeling like Thor or Storm with a DIY cape. You can use felt or a large T-shirt to create the cape and it can be made in many colors: blue, green, pink or purple so that everyone can feel like a hero.

Superheroes Eat, Too

Between flying and saving the world, superheroes need some time to eat and restore their strength! Though their diets may not be the best; Spiderman enjoys cherry pie, Thor often has a sweet tooth, Iron Man likes to chow down on burgers and Captain America loves some apple pie. The Super Berries Green Smoothie is a healthy snack that will give your little hero the strength to conquer the day. Source: thefrugalfoodiemama.com.
