Make Superhero Capes to Donate to Capes for Kids

Capes for Kids from Enchanted Makeovers provides capes for children living in shelters. They feel capes are a symbol that remind children to call on their own strength. 

When you make superhero capes to donate you are giving children an opportunity to explore creative play. Dress-up play isn’t just fun, it’s a learning activity where children can use their imaginations and build vocabulary skills. Dressing up as a superhero will help children in transition gain confidence during an emotionally difficult time.

Capes are often considered one size fits all which makes it easy to give any child a cape but you might also want to consider making toddler and even teen size capes.
