This giveaway is now a LIVE giveaway! Comment away! I will pick winners at 10pm CST TONIGHT!!!

 

 

The Houston Children’s Museum is having a Super Hero Epic Adventures this summer and they want you to be apart of it!

 

Summer has taken on epic proportions! Superheroes will come to train during the Summer of Epic Adventure at the Children’s Museum of Houston. Beginning Memorial Day weekend, May 24, through Labor Day, Sept. 2, 2013 the Museum will power up and transform into The League – an elite, superhero training institute complete with superhero teachers, action-packed activities, daily epic showdown live performance, character appearances and extraordinary events, so that YOU (the superhero trainee) can beat boredom and all that stands against summer fun!

As a superhero trainee, YOU have been chosen to be ever-vigilant for evildoers and super villains who skulk around campus and also to take on The League’s superhero core curriculum which includes:

• Get Your Gear On – Superheroes can’t rely on their powers alone. Learn how to make your own gear, costume, symbol, gadgets, guides, vehicles and more! We’ll show you how.
• Train Up – It takes both physical and mental training to be super, and The League will put you through both all summer long.
• Put Your Powers to the Test! – Bigger, better, stronger power. Try out your physical and mental prowess on different challenges which will test the limits of your powers.

Episode 9: X-Powers Epic Adventure
Aug. 5 – 14
(PBS’ Super Why Character Appearance, Aug. 9)
PBS’ Super Why will turn pages as he vows to defeat summer boredom with a special appearance on Aug. 9. Take the X Powers Epic Adventure, Aug. 5 – 14, and get your gear on with plastic fusion emblems. Train up with sticky situations, guessing games, gravity splatter art, domino runs, superhero ABC, and then put your powers to the test with balance and coordination challenges.

Episode 10: The Ultimate Test Epic Adventure
Aug. 15 – 22
With only a few Epic Adventures left, it’s time for superheroes trainees to push their boundaries. Get your gear on with plastic fusion masks. Train up with balance boards and giant Jenga. Then, put your powers to the test with a super-secret quiz, circle logic, strategy games, mosaics, summer adventure books and more. Catch a break from all the action with a comic book artist appearance on Aug. 17!

Episode 11: Super Sidekicks
Aug. 23 – 28
(Pirates of the Caribbean Macaw Appearance, Aug. 23)
(PBS’ Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood Character Appearance, Aug. 24)
Sidekicks play an important role in hero support. They may not get their biggest roles but their powers are just as vital. Get their gear on with plastic fusion capes, and making robot sidekicks. Then, train them up with giant snakes and ladders, estimation, and figuring out who is good or bad with superhero opposites. Finally, put their powers to the test when The Pirates of the Caribbean macaw “flies in” to challenge them on Aug. 23 and PBS’s Daniel the Tiger roars in for special visit on Aug. 24.

Episode 12: Secret Identities and Everyday Heroes
Aug. 29 – Sept. 4
(Houston Firefighters sizzle in on Aug. 29)
Heroes aren’t always born heroes. Some of them are made and some we will never know by name. Houston firefighters (the real life heroes) will make an appearance on Aug. 29. Get your gear on with sticky accessories, superhero masks and magnet mazes. Train up with hidden sugar demos and estimation, and then put your powers to the test with optical illusions, tricks, and golden rod paper.
