Superhero Capes for Toys

Thursday, November 17, 2011

Most of Miss E's day involves imaginative play with her stuffed animals particularly her set of Backyardigans.  There is often a superhero involved, and we sometimes use old bibs as capes.  The other day we decorated the capes.

Materials
  • Bib
  • fabric paint
  • paint brush or q-tip
  • pen
Directions

Write the first initial of the toy's name onto the back of a bib.


Trace the initial with fabric paint using a q-tip or paintbrush.



Decorate the cape with more paint.  Miss E wanted to keep decor to a minimum.  Perhaps, she thought it would ruin a superhero's tough image with a fancy cape.


Allow capes to dry for a day.



Tie capes onto stuffed animal or doll.  Now, your superheroes are ready to save the day in style.



This activity facilitates letter identification, sound recognition, and handwriting.
