DC Kids Camp: A Family Comic Friday Extra!
Let’s face it. Times are really tough. Most of the nation is stuck indoors. And after a while, things start getting a little stir crazy! In anticipation of this, DC Comics has come to your rescue with the virtual DC Kids Camp!
Launched just this Wednesday, DC Comics has created an at-home activity program for kids of all ages (and their parents) during this time of self- isolation and social distancing. Parents and their children can ‘follow DC Kids social channels—Twitter and Instagram—to download kid-friendly, superhero-themed activities and previews of past and upcoming DC middle grade graphic novels to enjoy at home. The DC Kids social channels will also feature entertaining videos from all-star authors and artists for parents and kids to watch together.’
Leading this program are two stars of DC’s middle grade lineup, including Meg Cabot, Ridley Pearson and Gene Luen Yang. These experts will be leading videos teaching how to write your own super stories and how to draw your favorite characters! Other activities include ‘origami tutorials with Gene Luen Yang (Superman Smashes the Klan) and a make-your-own Green Lantern ring demonstration with Minh Lê (Green Lantern: Legacy). DC promises more to follow!
There will even be downloadable activity kits based on books from DC’s recent line-up of kid friendly graphic novels! See the complete line-up below!
