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.
- fabric paint
- paint brush or q-tip
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.
Tie capes onto stuffed animal or doll. Now, your superheroes are ready to save the day in style.
