My kiddos are in the middle of working on this one, and it has been FUN!! You start out by giving your kiddos a blank piece of paper with two sets of eyes glued on. I was inspired by this picture from House of Baby Piranha.

Kiddos get to draw two characters....the only rule is one must be a superhero. The other character can be a superhero, villain, monster, alien, puppy, kitten, even themselves!

Aren't these adorable?!

After drawing their characters, they start thinking about the story...and are asked to draw in the background.....wherever their story is happening....in the sky, outerspace, city...the sky's the limit! Literally!

After the picture (but before coloring), I gave them a planning sheet that asked for their characters & setting, the problem, and the solution. Then we got busy writing!! They've already been writing on these stories for two days! I can't wait to share the finished products with you!!
