Our neighbor (a psychologist who has taught scores of preschoolers) recently shared a great idea that her teaching team had for creative play. In response to parental concerns about the violence and marketing of some commercial characters, “Be Your Own Superhero” time was created, during which the kids developed imaginative characters with amazing powers (I especially love “Bionic Dinosaur”). The kids enthusiastically latched onto the power and creativity of this game, carrying it through the entire school year.
Great minds apparently think alike, and thanks to Little Capers, your little superhero can get into character in comfort. Little Capers offers colorful, boldly designed 100% cotton short and long sleeved superhero shirts made in a non-sweatshop environment. Shirts for the 2-8 year old crowd come with cool, detachable contrast capes; cape-free shirts are available in 6-24 months. We love that this non-commercial super gear offers inspiration for both girls and boys, while being practicable and comfortable on the playground.
