Create Your Own Superhero Cape
Superhero costumes are often colorful so that they look cool and fun and are made to match the superhero’s name and theme. For example, Batman’s costume looks like a large bat and Spider-Man’s looks like a big, oversized spider web pattern. And almost all superhero’s have a cape to call their own. Why not try making your own?
Tie Dye Socks – What an Idea!
My sons have been pegged the Mismatch Twins at school because they have been wearing different socks all year long. Some battles with six year old twin boys just aren’t worth fighting and matching socks has been one of them.
Everyone loves a good mummy! And here’s a Halloween craft that’ s not only a cinch to make, but teaches your child great hand dexterity skills. Because it’s made from pipecleaners they’re easy to bend and play with. Maybe they’ll get so good at wrapping you can have them help you wrap Christmas presents this year!
