Superhero City Small World

Pin It
SUPERHERO SMALL WORLD

So I mentioned earlier this week how Vin is starting to get into superheroes - I picked up these little Spiderman and Hulk figures from a bunch of kids selling their stuff on a table in their front garden and I knew the first thing I wanted to do with them was build a city for them to save.

SUPERHERO PRETEND PLAY


I covered some mini-cereal boxes in newspaper and stuck on black squares for windows, then I strung some string from the tops of the buildings for Spiderman's web...

PRESCHOOL SUPERHERO PLAY

A little phonebooth for quick civilian to caped crusader costume changes (don't mention that red phonebooths don't exist anywhere outside of London or that it was only Superman who used one and all the rest of our figures are Marvel heroes - my geek husband already pointed that out!)

I made some speech bubbles to go with the whole comic book theme - if you're doing this with older kids you could give them blank speech bubbles and get them to write their own plotlines.


MARVEL HEROS PLAYTIME

A toxic chemical spill to fall into and gain radioactive powers - plus a play food tin can with the label torn off

DIY SUPERHERO WORLD

I tried to  be clever with the Bat Signal - my idea was to make something that could slip over the end of a torch and project onto a wall - it didn't really work how I wanted it to, but it still looks cool at the top of our crackerbox skyscraper!

I printed these 'bang' 'kapow' signs forever ago when I was planning a superhero party for Vinnie's second birthday (my idea got usurped in favour of a dinosaur theme) I love the pop-art look - I think I might just throw a little superhero party for no reason (maybe a half birthday party?)

PRESCHOOL CITY PLAY

I have learnt from several lessons past and set up this playscene during naptime, took my photos then moved it all down within reach for little villains to come and attempt to take over the world.

I'm on the hunt for some more heroes to add to our playtime - we definitely need some supervillains to even things out!

  4. Awesome. Just awesome. That is some next level super hero playtime. I love the sound effects and especially the bat signal in addition to the radness that is your knowledge of Marvel / DC universes. Nice!

  6. Visiting from The Weekly Kids' Co-op. I saw Wolverine in the thumbnail of your post and I had to click. Such a great small world! My boys would adore this. Can't believe you scored those figurines in a yard sale. What a score! Captain America is so cute!
