Here is the second activity we did in Creative Remix at the Roundhouse Centre… The Flying Superheroes.
To create your superhero follow these steps:
Create your superhero identity and origin story
Here is a fun guide to making your own superhero name that I found on-line.
Here is a sample of a template for writing a Superhero Identity and Origin Story. There are many on-line, here is one that simpler ones I found.
2. Colour and cut template. Template inspired by the Free Flying Superhero Father’s Day Craft on kidscraftroom
Notice there are two options for the cape.
Check out the beautiful color combinations of double-sided origami paper.
3. Glue front and back pieces together, leaving enough room in the middle to fit straw hero launcher. Then adhere cape over the shoulders.
4. Insert straw. Allow to dry. And launch your Superhero!
Here is a sample made by my son – he calls this “Lava Boy”
Ready, set, fly, my hero! *use whatever straw you have- paper, stainless steel or bamboo, perhaps.
I think the double-sided Origami cape really makes the costume more interesting. And you know how kids are – they love colors. It’s like choosing crayons or frozen yogurt toppings just in paper form, hahaha
