Today’s steal isn’t the only way to get your child feeling like their favorite superhero! We’ve compiled a list of fun activities for the whole family so your little one can earn their cape.
Superhero Game Ideas for Kids
Super Runner. Make a game of Cops & Robbers even more fun by dressing the family up and playing Superheros & Villains!
Super Jumps. Help your hero leap over tall buildings by drawing a cityscape on cardboard boxes. Place them around the yard and create an obstacle course.
Super Strength. Tape up large moving boxes with a few pillows or books inside and write 1,000 lbs on them. Tell your kid that you need his or her super strength to move the boxes! For added fun, put the box on top of dad. Have your little kiddo come to the rescue!
Super Transformer. Separate the family or friends into two groups and give each group a suit, a shirt, and a pair of glasses. Time each child to see how fast they can take off the “normal” clothes to reveal their superhero costume underneath!
Super Smarts. Have them solve a mystery with their brains! Hide your “toy in distress” and take or draw a picture of where it is. Cut up into puzzle pieces and have them put the puzzle together to solve the riddle.
Super Service. Hide all of their stuff animals and/or toys in the living room. Tell them that a“villain” has let all the animals/toys loose and you need their help gathering them back before the “bomb goes off.” Set a timer (we found a good one here) for a reasonable amount of time and have them race around before it goes off. (This is also good way to make cleanup time more fun!)
Super Saver. Tape red crate paper streamers in a hallway to look like a laser security. Zig-zag high to low and make sure to put extra strips of lines straight across. Wrap yarn around a few toys to “tie them up” and place them on the other side. Tell them they have to cross the hall without touching the “lasers” in order to rescue the toys!
