Having grown up in a creative household it's always been important to both John and I to provide our sons with a space that allows them to express themselves in a safe and supportive environment. We completely encourage moments of madness, imagination and believing in the unbelievable.
So when Vertbaudet set my eldest a challenge of putting together his dream superhero I had an inclination it would include Dinosaurs but what I didn't expect is that he would pair it up with super secret Ninja skills and creating a crime busting Ninja Dinosaur that projects the smaller Dinosaurs from any rogue meat eaters that may be prowling the plains of our back garden.
I love how free kids feel when they are in character as Mr A spent the rest of the day in this superhero suit, roaring along the aisles of our local supermarket without a care in the world, if only I could be be so unselfconscious as my 5yr old.
Do your little ones love to dress up? If they do they will love the new competition #VertbaudetHeroes which is encouraging parents to help their little ones design their very own superhero alter ego. Don't worry you don't need to be a professional designer just get creative with what you have in the house such as we did with a little makeshift fabric headband and what my eldest calls his elastic ninja power beam. Once you have put something together simply take a snap and upload your picture to their Facebook before the September 12th for your chance to win a £250 family trip for four to a UK attraction of your choosing.
