Each child who signs up gets to write on a white sticker.  We then put the sticker on the cityscape.  This is already quite a bit more full than when I took the photos this morning–only three days in!

    Where do the super hero cut outs come from?

      They’re standees–life size cardboard cutouts that we bought. I just took a look, and it looks like they no longer sell the one of Superman that I purchased, but you can get them from a couple of different sources, depending on the figure you want. Try searching for the character you want (Life size Superman standee) and look at images to see what character has the look you want. We also made sure that all of the characters we got were the same type so that they were as uniform as possible. The only one that was different was the Spiderman I used. I wanted a particular pose, so I used Publisher and a high resolution image to create a large poster, assembled it, and cut it out. I also cut around the standees (they have some parts cut out and others with cardboard attached so that they stand up) so that they would look good against their background. If you aren’t putting them on a background, then you may not want to do that. I attached them with double sided adhesive tape, and made sure that the bulletin board paper we used as a background was very well attached to the bulletin board behind so that the weight of the standee didn’t pull the paper off the board. Good luck!
