Time to raid your kids’ dress-up collection! For these superhero costumes, a mom of four daughters sewed the tutus and made the emblems, headbands and masks. We think your kiddo could look just as fabulous even if you can’t sew a stitch. Simply fashion an original superhero ensemble from items your kids already have in their dress-up collection. Make sure to search their dance gear for tights and leotards and tutus as well. You can make accessories such as cuffs, emblems and headbands from construction paper or print them onto photo paper off the computer and adhere them to shirts and capes. See how to make a quick and easy cape out of a T-shirt here.
