While we’ve moved to a WFH schedule to accommodate our new normal of social distancing, we’re always on the hunt for new activities that will keep the whole family engaged. DC is here to help with a superhero-sized twist.
The comic book company launched a new DC Kids Camp program today with a full slate of exciting, at-home activities for families. The new program is curated by DC’s own middle-grade authors and artists, including Shannon Hale, Gene Luen Yang, Meg Cabot, Ridley Pearson, and Kirk Scroggs.
The database of downloadable, superhero-themed activity kits, middle-grade graphic novel previews, and interactive author and artist videos can be accessed from DC Kids’ social media profiles or through the DC Family newsletter each Monday and Friday.
Through the new program, fans can learn to draw their favorite DC superheroes and even discover new skills to make their own comics with easy, how-to, draw-along videos with artists, such as Agnes Garbowska (DC Super Hero Girls). More videos include tutorials for superhero-themed crafts, including a Green Lantern ring and Superman origami. (Um, yes please, you had me at crafting!) Additional activity sheets, coloring pages, and blank comic book pages will also be available to download.
DC Kids will share its exclusive craft projects on Twitter and Instagram daily at 10 a.m. PST, when DC authors and artists will demonstrate how it’s done in easy-to-follow videos.
Keep your eyes peeled here later today for today’s craft: A DIY Green Lantern Ring with Minh Lê (and I already know what I’m doing on my lunch break)!
