What kind of super hero will you be? Children look up to super heroes. From Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, there may even be a few who look up to Aqua-Man and Atom Ant.
Discuss with children what super heroes do. The common answer will be they help people. Super heroes are a great tool to teach children about kindness and compassion. Ask the children what it means to be kind or helpful. How does it make them feel when someone does something nice for them? Or when they do some thing nice for someone else?
To help the children get into the part create your very own super hero masks or capes. I used construction paper, gift tissue, as well as recycled packaging from a double pack of lemon juice.
