What is Superheroes Day?
Superheroes Day is an annual event celebrated on October 30th, which was created to honor the fictional superheroes from comic books, TV shows, and movies. It is a day for children to dress up as their favorite superhero and partake in a variety of activities.
This event was started by two parents who wanted to give their children the opportunity to celebrate their favorite superheroes in a fun way.
What does a superhero mean to a child?
The term “superhero” can refer to any fictional character that has extraordinary or superhuman abilities and uses these powers either to fight evil or to accomplish heroic feats. The term is also used in other ways, such as when referring to those who possess extraordinary abilities of an ordinary person, like the protagonist of the novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

Check out this sorting activity from @childrenjustwannahavefun. She included real fruit to have kids sort between the ‘healthy’ food and the ‘unhealthy’ food.
