With just a few hours to go before the deadline, I decided to enter the Tots100/Plum Baby Mighty Moments Challenge. The idea is to get your pre-schooler to design a healthy superhero. Both health and superhero’s have been prominent areas of discussion these last few days. Friday was Lewis’ pre-school sports day, where the emphasis was on healthy lifestyle choices. Sunday was Father’s Day and Mr C was presented with his very own set of SuperDad pyjamas. Lewis and Aaron thought these were great and wanted to grow up to be SuperDad’s themselves some day!
I apologise for the quality, these photo’s are a little fuzzy, but Superhero’s are just so fast! The real SuperDad was so fast I didn’t manage any decent photo’s of him at all!
So when I asked Lewis if he wanted to make a healthy Superhero he was very keen on the idea. We discussed what healthy meant, and Lewis said it was eating fruit and running, and it makes you big and strong. I translated this to mean healthy on the inside and the outside!
Being such a lovely day I really wanted to spend some time outside, so we went into the garden to look for Superhero inspiration. Lewis agreed it would be a good idea to turn one of our raspberry bushes into a superhero.
After a bit of trial and effort, trying different items we finally had a Superhero to be proud of! Lewis named him ZaZa and a very healthy superhero he is! Just look at his stats!
Of course it is very important to be healthy, but to be a superhero you need to have special powers! I asked Lewis and Aaron what superpowers they thought ZaZa had and you can watch a little video of that here. To summarize, they are:
– a very snazzy dancer
– he jumps out unexpectedly
– he can run very fast
– he is very good at hiding
– he can be really noisy
For two little pre-schoolers I think my boys did a great job on this challenge. They will always be my little superheros!
