It’s so easy for kids to get wrapped up in the super heroes they see on TV. The real heroes are people who walk amongst us and this past week we celebrated National Superhero Day with a trip to the New York City Fire Museum. PJ Masks was the theme, since kids can easily relate to the colorful animated characters who are real kids during the day and fight kiddie-crime at night.
I have to admit- although I heard of PJ Masks because my kids watch it all the time, I’ve never sat down to watch an episode with them. So my oldest gave me a quick synopsis and then I realized what made PJ Masks so intriguing. Her eyes lit up as she told me the tales of Owlette, Gekko, and Cat Boy. The villains are always the same- Luna Girl, Night Ninja and Romeo. The consistency of the characters makes it easy for younger kids like my 4 year old become familiar with and really grow with the characters. Even my little guy stops and listens to the opening credits with the catchy PJ Masks theme song.
This is a great weekend to celebrate Superheroes with your kids! Head over to PJ Masks to download a printable Superhero party kit where you can make masks with your kids and even get ideas of a superhero birthday party! We had a great time exploring the NYC Fire Museum with the kids and explaining the important role the day to day superheroes have in our lives.
Thanks so much to the NYC Fire Museum and PJ Masks for hosting such a fun event for families!
