We All Have A Little Superhero In Us

Imagine if you were a superhero for a day!!!

Imaginative play is one of the many areas of play that are critical to a child’s development. Infants, toddlers and young children acquire developmental skills like fine and gross motor abilities and hand-eye coordination through contact with the real world, when they move and interact with their environment. This week we imagined that we were superheroes. We talked about how their are real superheroes and how they could become one themselves.

Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Imagination is the door to possibilities. It is where creativity, ingenuity, and thinking outside the box begin for child development. Imaginative and creative play is how children learn about the world.

Their are ways we can teach our kids to be a superhero. Superheroes are known to hold great power and abilities and like that they can teach children to grow, learn and become better version of themselves. Teaching our kids to be kind, helpful and responsible are a great place to start.

This week we made a superhero cape, belt, shield, glasses and took a peek through a super strength magnifying glass to find secret codes.

It’s important to foster children’s imagination and take joy in their thoughts and acts. Experience Early Learning Curriculum is an amazing curriculum that helps me to foster imagination knowing that their activities are research based for their age!

SUPERHERO CAPES

The kids were able to design and paint or color their very own capes. This activity was their favorite this week. They were very proud of what they created and brought them back everyday!

SUPERHERO BELTS

I absolutely love the creativity they put into their belts. Each one is different than the other. But all of them are amazing.

MASKS

There is something about having a mask on! You almost feel invincible. They pretend to be able to see through things and have super strength.

SUPER SPY STRENGTH MAGNIFYING GLASS

This activity was great! We spend a great amount of time looking at each one of these to see if they had different codes. The kids were convinced that there was no way that they could be the same. Super cool activity, the kids really felt important when they were able to decode a message.

SHIELDS

Shields protect us from harm. And are also very fun to make. Hogan and Miller are a super duo brother and sister team!
