So, as most of you know, I’m a huge fan of superheroes and comic books. Being a former teacher, I’ve also got a love of things which are both entertaining and educational in nature.
Call it edutainment if you like.
So a couple of years ago I came up with an idea for an activity for elementary kids that would work on reading and writing skills as well as be a whole lot of fun.
Naturally, it centers around superheroes 🙂
What it is is a superhero kit in a box, which I call MyHero. It allows a child to construct their own superhero “avatar”. The child, with the help of an adult or older sibling, will actually come up with their own unique superhero origin story, then design the look of the hero and ultimately create their superhero mask with a unique reusable fabric mask.
If you want to check it out, you can see it at the official MyHero website.
MyHero is patent pending.
