Before we composed our stories and before a super can be a hero they must first train!
For training I set up an obstacle course.
Step 1: For the first obstacle I set up two boxes, the second box a bit bigger then the first. We called this jumping over cars. Superheroes need to jump over many obstacles but cars was the first thing that came to mind.
Step 2: Two hula hoops were set up across from each other. The point was to jump from one hoop into the second. I moved the hoops according to the child's ability. This was called jumping from building top to building top, which supers do in like every movie.
Step 3: I removed all of the spider web tape from the floor and rolled it up into 3 different 'sticky' balls. I liked that they were still sticky because Little Dragon felt like spider man flinging his webs when throwing them. Summer Dragon and Doll Dragon both gave the balls different power names.
The Dragons used these balls to throw them at the 'villain' (our tall vertical box.) This was one of the favorites because they were able to throw the balls really hard and it made a loud 'thwack!' noise when it hit the box.
Step 4: I put down a few blankets a large layer of plastic bags then some pillows in front of the chair.
This obstacle was by far the favorite. I called it jumping from high heights. All supers have to be brave and make jumps from high places. I couldn't really have them fly, but this worked out perfectly!
Setting up an obstacle course outside would be great too, but it was raining, so we kept it indoors.
The Dragons did this course over and over again until they had to stop for lunch.
By the end they all said they were trained and ready to fight!
