Can I be Spiderman when I grow up?

This month’s Poppins Book Nook theme is “What will I be when I grow up?”  I was really unsure what to do for this month because I made the mistake of actually asking my children what they wanted to be when they grew up.  This is what they said.

My nine year old: “A rapper.  The music kind.”

My seven year old:  “A weather girl…or maybe a nurse…or maybe a teacher…or a mom”

My four year old: “Spiderman”

My three year old:  “A princess!  I’m going to be Anna!!”

With such great guidance, I didn’t know where to start as I began to sift through the possibilities for this month.  Being a little bit of a free spirit, and always having unrealistic career goals myself, I decided to say “Why not?” to the idea of being Spiderman!

Can I be Spiderman

We read 5-Minute Spider-Man Stories which is a really nice illustrated book of little Spiderman stories that we picked up at BJ’s a few months ago at the begging pleas of my young Spiderman in training.  They show some of Spiderman’s great fights against the really bad guy like “Lizard,” “Dr. Octopus” and “Sandman.”

We already have a Spiderman mask, but if you don’t, you can find some helpful tutorials here or here.  (I don’t know how Hulk got into that picture!  He just always tries to come in and smash things up!!)

The next thing we found that was a really cool must-do was this Spider-Man goes Jumping Jack craft from M Gulin.

We’ve spent most of the rest of our time enjoying Spiderman by watching both Amazing Spiderman movies and watching lots of Ultimate Spiderman on Netflix.  Of course, there’s been a lot of playing with superhero toys too!

Of course, who could talk about Spiderman without drawing him and some of his arch-nemeses?  There’s a whole world of possibilities!!
