Some examples of the activities we’ve got planned for kids and families:
Learn to Draw Comics
: Stop by Section 111 in Artists Alley and visit local artists Dawn McVay-Baumer
and 2017 MSU Scholarship Winner Christy Hans
for lessons on learning to draw!
Superhero, or Super Villain? Either way, we love it!
Come hack, chop and modify old toys to make your very own superhero or creature creation! Whatever you can dream up, you can make and take home! Join TinkrLAB
to make your VERY OWN Toy Hack masterpiece. All materials and tools will be provided–look for TinkrLAB in Section 122.
Make-your-own Superhero Mask: We’ve got all the materials for kids to make their own superhero masks! Your mask can be based on a known hero, or use your own creativity and personality to make something totally new. Find this activity in Section 103.
Sticky Note Comics: Help create an ongoing comic story board by adding to work done by others in the Girl Scouts’ booth in Section 131! Anyone can add a sticky note to the comic as the next “panel”, which will be displayed for everyone to see and share. The story will continue all day, so aspiring artists can add to the story all day long.
Visit the Girl Scouts in Section 131 for these cool activities!
The Science of Superhero Flight: How do superheroes fly? Some are born with it, some (we’re looking at you, Iron Man!) have super technology. At #CapCity2018, we’ll be conducting experiments with the Girl Scouts in Section 131 using balloons, straws, string, and other kinds of tech to make superhero figures fly.
Comic Art Badge: Sixth through Eighth grades can earn their comic art badge by completing checklists found at the Girl Scout’s booth in Section 131. Kids in fifth grade and below can still participate in these activities!
Make-Your-Own Activity Book: Pick your own coloring pages, puzzles, mad libs and more, and combine them into your own personal activity book to take home. Add autograph and sketch pages to collect signatures and drawings from your favorite guests! You can find this activity in Section 103.
: Totally FREE for attendees! We’re happy to welcome Face Painting by Hilary
back for 2018! She’ll be ready to make anyone into a super hero for the day. You’ll find Hilary in Section 103.
! Kids and adults can enter cosplay contests for a chance to win prizes! You can also take pictures with your favorite superheroes around the con, and especially at the League of Enchantment in Section 117. Read more about cosplay rules on our web page
