My girls LOVE all things Super Heroes. DC and MARVEL, we don’t discriminate. Geek parenting at its finest. My husband and I are so proud. So I was excited to share not only this awesome Super Hero Headband for girls but also some of the great LEGO® Super Heroes sets we have been playing with. Because let’s face it, girls love the kick-butt action of Wonder Woman, Super Girl, Cat Woman, and Hawk Girl.
First, you’re going to need to download this template.
4-6 inches of 1 /2 inch elastic
1/8 yard fabric (2 coordinating patterns) Coordinating thread
1. Select 2 fabrics and cut one of each, on fold.
2. Pin the 2 fabrics right sides together.
3. Pin one end of elastic between.
4. Start at the end of one long side and stitch around headband with a 1/4 inch seam, leaving the narrow end without the elastic open. Backstitch over the elastic for extra strength.
5. Turn headband right side out and press flat.
6. Tuck ends of the open narrow ends inside and insert the other end of the elastic. Pin in place.
7. Topstitch around edges of entire headband making sure to backstitch over the newly inserted elastic for reinforcement
Placing a different fabric on the inside makes these fun headbands reversible. So you can have your MARVEL on one side and DC Universe on the other!
Aren’t they awesome?!
The girls were so excited to get these awesome LEGO Super Heroes sets to build. We took a video of them building their LEGO® DUPLO® set because it had Wonder Woman, Batman and Superman in it, and a kitty! If you have girls, you know cats are where it’s at, even if you don’t have your own. It’s totally a girl thing.
LEGO® has three different playsets for every age. It starts in the DUPLO world for ages 1 1/2-5, then JUNIORS 4+, and finally the general sets 5+. So we’ve been building LEGO sets from a young age. Our LEGO building station has run out of storage.
The girls even put on their Super Hero costumes during their build. They like to reenact scenes from some of the shows. When I ask them their favorite, Super Hero it changes. There are so many great ones to choose from after all. When we are done building we play but then we can break it all down and create something else. I’m working on creating little Master Builders.
JaMonkey is hooked on the Justice League right now so she fills me in on the plot lines and parallel universes that are constantly plaguing the DC Universe.
