Royal and Baloo naturally love Superheroes. I mean, it’s so cliché, but they are such boys. I’ve been meaning to make them Superhero capes for awhile. They love to tie blankets around their necks and run around, but that just doesn’t always work well. I also wanted to make something that wasn’t a choking hazard. Tying things around necks does not make me feel safe! So I bought 2 shirts at Micheals and set out to transform them!
I wanted to paint a decal on the back for them, and this sounded like the perfect project for freezer paper stenciling. I had never done it before but it sounded easy enough!!
I designed these little decals on the computer, and printed them out! (I made a set for every letter in the alphabet available for download at the end of the post!). Freezer paper is thin enough that I could trace the lines right onto it. You’ll want to trace on the papery side, not the smooth side.
I got the idea to use sarah wrap instead of paint brushes from I Am Momma Hear Me Roar. I decided to do that partly because we don’t have paintbrushes, but mostly because I liked the effect.
And of course you’ll need some fun educational activities to go with your new capes!! Check out my Superhero PreK pack and Kindergarten Math Pack!
