I believe in the power of play: to nurture children, help them learn, encourage them when they need it, lift spirits and sometimes bring healing. If you’re a regular reader of NurtureStore I know you’re as passionate about giving children plenty of time and opportunity for being creative, using their imaginations and learning through play.
Here’s a tutorial that shows you how to make an easy super hero cape that your children can use for lots of pretend play – but also an invitation to send the power of play to another child who could really do with a super hero boost, joining in with the amazing I Am Super Capes appeal.
