This project is easy, under $5 and will give your kids an opportunity to show love and pay it forward to friends, family and neighbors.  With a quick trip to the dollar store pick up one blue or pink table cloth, two pieces of felt ( or up cycle old fabric from home) some glue and note cards.

Using the downloaded patterns, cut out glasses, belt and cape icon from felt.  Cut a piece of plastic table cloth approximately 36 x 20 inches. This will be your cape. Round the bottom edge on both sides.Fold over the top edge and cut slits in the plastic. Cut two  strips 2 yds x 4 inches these will be your cape tie and belt tie.

Using one piece of your tie, tape the end to a straw. This makes a really easy needle to thread through the slits in the cape. Thread your cape tie through the holes and glue on your circle and heart icon. Now using the remaining strip, thread through the two holes of the belt icon. For glasses tie cut two strips 4 inches by 16 inches. Thread them through the slits on the glasses and glue  Add stickers or just cut more hearts or a monogram from the remaining felt and add to the costume.
