I grew up with a comic book loving dad. I think his regularly for instilling this love into me and I’m so happy to be passing it on to my children as well and I have to say (pats self on back) that I am pretty proud of myself for raising them right. That’s my super family is full of Avengers fans and we aren’t afraid to admit or show the world in all our wild and wacky glory.

We have been talking about and celebrating the upcoming release of MARVEL’S The Avengers: Age of Ultron and have plans to see it this weekend. The kids have been running around sporting some new MARVEL’S The Avengers: Age of Ultron toys that I got for them. I decided they each need to look the part of their favorite character so we got some dress up play items and they have been having a blast!

Luke – Iron Man

Luke loves Iron Man and it’s no wonder why. He is our little technical genius in-house who picked up I.T. from his parents at a young age and it’s currently teaching himself programming at the ripe old age of 10. Not bad for a child who was just integrated back into our home school district from a special needs one due to being on the Autism Spectrum. Definitely someone this super momma is proud to call her son!

Jackson – The Hulk

Jackson is my emotionally sensitive child and also on the Autism Spectrum and I think he gravitates towards The Hulk for that reason. He gets the highs and lows he goes through but beneath it all has a good heart and lots of caring. He loves helping and taking care of others. Those are fine traits this super momma is so proud her son has!

Ellie – (Ms.) Captain America

Ellie is my only daughter and the baby and loves all things pretty, shiny and/or sparkly. She’s our own in-house fashionista who has a funky and eclectic style. She loves Captain America because he has the prettiest outfit according to her. She likes to refer to herself as Ms. Captain America and adds a little sass to her play costume with a tutu and matching leggings. This super momma loves that I’m raising a daughter that knows a girl can be more than a princess and can be the hero that saves the day all on her own!

Mom – Super MARVEL fan

I love all things MARVEL and am so excited about this movie that I decided that I needed to take my super crafty skills and make myself something fun and funky for seeing the movie and to go with my MARVEL’S The Avengers t-shirt. That’s how I came up with this adorable Captain America’s shield hair clip

SUPPLIES

red, white and blue peel and stick glitter foam

alligator clip

low heat hot glue gun and stick

DIRECTIONS

Using objects of various circular sizes (I used biscuit cutters) place them on the back of the peel and stick foam and trace. You will need two large about 3.5″ across in red, one white circle in about 2.5″, one red circle about 1.5″, a blue circle about 1″ and a white star about 1″. For the star I just free hand drew one. If you can find pre-done stars you can buy those but I wasn’t able to find any.

Peel the backing off of the two large red circles and match up the sticky sides together so it is now glittery looking on both front and back. Next, peel off the back on the white and center it onto the large red circle. Follow next with the small red circle on the white and then the blue circle onto the small red circle. Finally peel the backing from the star and attach it to the blue circle.

Using a low heat hot glue gun place glue onto the flat side of the alligator clip and firmly press onto the back of the shield. Let the glue set and then you are ready to use.

After all of my crafting and the kids role-playing we definitely need to refuel with some snacks. Luckily, Walmart has all of the specially marked The Avengers: Age of Ultron specially marked packages of Kellogg’s Fruit Snacks and Cheez-It baked snack crackers. Which the kids just love! For us adults though I grabbed some of the specially marked Doritos and Dr. Pepper.

    I love that hair clip! I don’t have time to make one, so I’m going to need for you to make one for me and send it my way, mmmkay? 🙂 That pic of your kids is awesome, I love how sassy your daughter is with her tutu and Captain America costume! And your boys look absolutely awesome. I wouldn’t mind having a little Thor in my life, but I guess role playing kids will do for now. 🙂 #client
