A few weeks ago I hosted a playdate where 10 of my daughters' friends got together to craft. This was no ordinary crafting playdate - this one was connected to a purpose where we all made unique and bright superhero capes for two amazing organizations Craft Hope and Enchanted Makeovers.
As a part of this special playdate we worked with FamilyFun magazine to create capes. The reason for the capes is that Enchanted Makeovers founder, Terry Grahl, explains that its not just because they lend themselves to imaginative play, but also because they remind kids that they dont have to wait for a superhero...they can be one!
The kids had so much fun using supplies like dots, markers, stickers, paint, shiny decals and more as they made hand-crafted capes to give back to kids. This program is designed to provide empowerment and confidence to those that need it the most and through this my daughters' friends learned about giving back in something so meaningful as creating and crafting.
You can also join in on the fun by making your own cape! Check out the step-by-step guide to get involved and show your kids the value of giving back.
How you can help:
- Make a cape, or several, following these directions or any other cape pattern you can find.
