Are you looking for Superhero Day activity ideas for your school classroom or have children who love superheroes? Read on, because children are going to love the themed preschool homeschool lesson plan for this week. That’s because this week is Superhero week! We had a lot of fun putting together the superhero activity for this week. Primarily, because we are a household of three boys who are totally into superheroes. Also, it’s such a great week to truly put into the spotlight everyone on the front lines during COVID-19.
We know it’s not easy, but I hope you can find a few minutes this week to show essential workers appreciation. You can do this by carving out some time and create homemade thank you cards to show gratitude to the essential workers in your country ❤️.
Get your superhero capes out and your bodies warmed up. Because this week involves a lot of gross motor movement activities your superhero in training toddlers and preschoolers are sure to enjoy!
