My sister, Stephanie, is working on a project for her Human Development in the Social Environment class. She is creating awareness on acceptance and self-esteem. Her idea is to take normal traits, skills and / or talents and to turn them into a superpower.
She is a wonderful artist and has created several characters that showcase different skills or talents. Her site helps children to think and to decide what their superpower is.
She wants to help children build up self-esteem by showing them that differences aren't bad and that we all have something that makes us who we are and most importantly to embrace their uniqueness.
She's also wanting to promote accepting others even if they are quirky or "different" from other kids in the classroom or society.
Here's an example of a few of her characters:
There are postcards that can be printed for each character and the back of the card has places for the kids to create their own superhero.
