The Cleveland area is not only the home of Superman creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, it’s also home to the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage, dedicated to fostering tolerance.
And what better way to encourage kids than by showing how they can be superheroes every day of their lives. Everyday Heroes is an exciting, interactive playspace with a hands-on series of exhibits where younger kids can explore issues of kindness, listening and helping, compassion and everyday heroics by getting involved.
They start by donning a superhero cape and zooming around the Good Mood Movement Area, then move on to customizing their own masks, painting kindness rocks to give and share, building a better world with jumbo Legos, adding their name and handprint on the hero wall, and becoming their own superhero in a show they might put on in the Puppet Theatre.
The accompanying Family Fun Series include story times, and a self-guided Everyday Hero Story Walk of the Museum’s permanent exhibit.
