I had no idea it would be such a hit! The boys loved their new capes which cost me approximately zero dollars and zero cents. The next day we took a trip to the mall and several moms stopped me to say they loved the capes! Little boys were following Batman and Superman around the playarea, pointing and yelling "LOOK MOM! Its SUPERMAN!!"
So here's how to make your little person a superhero in 5 minutes or less for $0
Grab an old kids T-shirt (sorry Uncle Matt, but my Solon Rec T-shirts worked perfectly)
Cut off the sleeves
Then cut up the sides and open up so it lays like this
Cut around the neck
Flip over and draw the emblem of your choice!
And here is the red cape I made last night in action. (Yes, I'm aware I'm not the best artist... but hey it worked).
They took off yelling "Lets fight bad guys!!"
