Grab your cape and mask and get exploring! What does a superchicken sound like? Find out! You may need it to combat your archenemy. Share your completed activities with a sidekick or take them to your summer hero headquarters—your local library!

  • Be a superscientist! With the help of a grown-up, try a science experiment from the American Chemical Society.
  • Gather together "junk". Make a sculpture with your found art pieces.
  • Create your own superchicken sound with household items. Follow the instructions here.
  • Save some toilet paper rolls and create your own super hero cuffs from them.
  • Make your own superhero thaumatrope. Follow the instructions here, and download the blank template to create your own design:
  • Collect flowers or leaves and press them between the pages of a heavy catalog.
  • Put your superspy skills to the test and check out the FBI kid's website.
  • Create your own laser field in the backyard or in your house. Take crepe paper streamers or string and criss-cross it at varying heights and lengths in a room or part of your yard. Test your superhero skills and see if you can make it through the streamer/string "lasers" without touching any.
  • Every superhero needs a theme song. Write your own! Need help? Check out a song writing book from the library.
It had been startling and disappointing to me to find out that story books had been written by people,
that books were not natural wonders, coming up of themselves like grass.
