Our easy outdoor superhero activities for kids is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods, Inc. All opinions are ours and we think these activities are some of the most fun we’ve had all summer! Just proof that you can have a blast and go one adventures without having to do a lot of prep or go very far from home!
Easy Outdoor Superhero Activities for Kids
When it comes to my kids, they’re a lot like other kids. They love playing outside, using their imaginations to create games, and they love superheros! We’ve been working on planning some family adventures for this summer, but Grambo and I found ourselves trying to figure out how to turn our ordinary days at home into more adventurous experiences for the kids.
Easy outdoor superhero activities became the plan for one of our days when the kids didn’t have any activities scheduled! With just a few supplies, we turned an ordinary afternoon into a creative adventure as they honed their superhero skills!
Plan Your Own Outdoor Superhero Activities
Getting started doesn’t have to take a lot of money or planning. Look through your outdoor toys to see what you have. You’d be surprised how easily some common toys can be turned into superhero challenges. Here are some of our favorite things to use:
- Water Balloons
- Squirt Guns
- Plastic Cups
- Water Hose
And that’s just beginning. If you put your thinking cap on, you’ll probably be able to turn anything into some great outdoor superhero activities for your kids. Check out what we did!
Web Shooting Skills
For older kids, pickup a few cheap cans of silly string and let them test their web shooting skills. Give each person a different color. You could see who can spray the furthest or try to hit targets for accuracy practice.
Superhero Shield Quesadilla
Hillshire Farm® Lunchmeat is always part of our lunches during the week. To fit out superhero theme, we headed to Kroger to pick up everything we needed to make Superhero Quesadilla Shields for lunch!
When we’re going out and about we often do meat and cheese roll ups because they are easy to make, pack, and eat while on the go.
Hillshire Farm® Lunchmeat is the perfect addition to the roll ups because all of the varsities pack great flavor! And they’re great because the kids will eat them and adults enjoy them too!
Since we were staying home to have a superhero adventure right in our own yard, I could ramp it up a little bit! Here’s all you need to make your own superhero shields that you can eat!
- Two tortillas (per quesadilla)
- 2 slices of cheese (we use thin slice for best melting)
- 2 slices Hillshire Farm® Lunchmeat
- Star shaped cookie cutter
Cut a star shape in one tortilla. Then lay the cheese slices on top of the other tortilla, layer the lunch meat on top, and then top with the star tortilla. Microwave for 30-45 seconds or until your cheese is melted and you have a Superhero Shield Quesadilla!
After you eat you’ll be ready to get back to developing more superhero skills outside!
Grab your toys that shoot water and some plastic cups to set up a target practice for your little superheroes.
You can use any toys that shoot water and anything to build targets. Older kids can stand further back while the younger ones can get up close. Carrigan decided that she needed to be nice and close. Not sure accuracy in target practice is her superpower but she was having a blast!
Superheroes must be quick and agile. Break out your sprinkler and have the kids do some agility practice with it! See who can jump highest over the water. Or start them out dry and see who stays the driest as the run through and try to avoid the spray.
You can also get out the water hose and do activities like limbo to see who is the most flexible and could possible sneak into tight places. There are all sorts of superpowers to be honed while playing in the water!
Blow Away the Competition
Turn the bubble blowing your kids love to do into part of your superhero adventure as they train to have super bubble blowing strength. This is where imaginations definitely get going! Challenge your kids to think about how big of a bubble they could blow if they were superheros. Who would they capture or protect with that bubble?
Almost any outdoor activity can be given a superhero twist!
