Picking our super hero alter ego is pretty serious business. Littlest is very clearly the Hulk. Part sweet, part destruction, and I’m fairly certain I hear the words “Hulk smash” on a daily basis.
Oldest Twin, and his love of technology, gravitates to Iron Man. A super hero who uses his smarts.
Youngest Twin could easily have been Iron Man as well. Or Captain America, he is in the Junior Cadet Corps program at his middle school. But getting to use a bow and arrow put Hawkeye at the top of his alter ego list.
Role playing The Avengers outside can make even superheroes hungry. So I made them something sweet and salty, much like the Hulk. These are caramel and chocolate dipped potato chips. You’ll need potato chips, melted caramel for dipping, and melted chocolate for dipping. I melted a bowl of caramels first and dipped the potato chips, then laid the chips on a sheet of parchment paper to cool. Once they were ready I dipped the caramel covered chips into the bowl of melted candy chocolate. I went with green colored chocolate to make them chips more Hulk like. I also used some of the broken chips pieces to make a candy bark. I poured the green chocolate into a parchment lined pan, added the broken chip pieces, and finished by drizzling the caramel over the top. Once it was hardened I broke it into pieces for the kids to eat. Two ways to make a fun Hulk treat.
Perhaps you have some rubber band bracelets hanging around your house? I know we do. While the bracelets are fun to wear on their own, you can also use them to make a simple DIY bow. Hawkeye made himself the bow and then used a paper straw from the kitchen as the arrow. Oldest Twin and Youngest Twin had fun doing bow and arrow competitions, seeing who could shoot their arrow the furthest.
When I was at Walmart getting Iron Man’s mask, and a few other things, I was able to try out the new app Super Heroes Assemble (which is available in the iTunes and Google Play store).
Of course Iron Man is all about the Super Heroes Assemble app. With the app you can turn your phone (or your teenagers phone) into a portal to exclusive Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron content. And when you bring your phone with you to Walmart (or on Walmart.com) you can scan The Avengers displays to become your favorite Avenger, explore a Hulkbuster training facility, and bring Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron characters to life with augmented reality. And make sure to head to the soft drink aisle where you can scan any 12 packs of Dr. Peppers Avengers or scan the in-store signage to unlock a digital comic book!
I have shared how we are preparing for the release of The Avengers: Age of Ultron. What are you and your family doing?
