Club members tested their super powers last week during La Conner’s Superhero Week as themed activities exercised youths’ minds and bodies while providing a whole lot of fun at the same time!
Members invented their own superheros and thought up new super powers while making paper doll versions of their caped crusaders and were challenged creatively on Friday for the Superhero Costume Contest. Youth brainstormed all week to develop super identities and personalities, which they brought to life for the contest. Each participant described their powers and showed off their signature move for fighting crime while the rest of the club watched and voted for their favorite hero.
Project Learn activities of Superhero Jeopardy and the X-Ray Vision Test had members thinking hard during the week. For the X-Ray Vision Test, youth had to put their hand into paper bags containing common objects and, without looking, decide what the object was. After 10 hidden objects, LC members proved that they are well on their way to having 20/20 X-Ray Vision.

Physical challenges for the week included the Kryptonite Relay Race, which required youth to return scattered kryptonite rocks to Krypton using only chopsticks, Spiderman’s Web, where youth tested their throwing accuracy by tossing paper balls at a doorway covered in a masking tape web, and a Laser Obstacle Course. Every club member participated in the Obstacle course, where youth were timed while they navigated through yarn ‘laser beams’ to retrieve magic crystals while trying their hardest not to touch any lasers.
Club member’s excitement for Superhero Week was well captured in the Superhero Photo Booth, where youth dawned capes and laid on a cityscape backdrop to give the illusion of flight.
